There's a humorous hoax story trending on the webs about a man shooting off his penis while holding a gun and taking "selfies." Although the story comes from a site that's known for satire and complete hilarity, some people aren't aware.
The funny NOT TRUE story starts:
A 20-year-old man is in stable condition Monday afternoon after the gun he was posing naked with accidentally discharged and shot off his penis. "We've never had someone shoot off their own junk before," the police said in a statement. "There was a man who shot off his foot, a middle-schooler shot her guinea pig, and even a baby was able to shoot both his parents, but never someone's own junk."
Touching and totally plausible. The story concludes:
First I posed with this bad-ass look on my face," said the man in a falsetto voice. "Then I thought the only thing girls like more than guns is men without shirts on, so I took my shirt off. To stand out from the rest of the shirtless gun-selfies, I decided to take my pants off because I read online that women like it when random guys send them pictures of their dick. I was trying to thrust my hips around and do the helicopter like my peen is another gun, but then the gun shot off instead of the camera."
My oh my. The picture of the man used in the NOT TRUE story comes from a TRUE 2015 story out of Michigan titled "New York-to-Michigan selfie-snapping bank robber gets 10 years in prison." Jules Bahler, the man in the picture, will live to ball another day.
