A promotional / fundraising stunt put on by a Charlotte, NC radio show:

Raising some money for the USO of North Carolina, Woody put on a trash can and headed out onto the driving range. Did I mention that in addtion to driving golf balls at him with a golf club, you could also FIRE AN AR-15 at him?!? $1 per ball for a golf shot or $5 per ball to fire a golf ball from an AR-15 rifle at Woody. All the proceeds went to the USO of NC and Purple Heart Homes.

If you want to pick up an AR-15 Golf Ball Launcher for your own stupid stunts they are $25 over at Amazon.

Pointing an AR-15 at someone and pulling the trigger with or without a golf ball attachment, unless you’re planning on killing them doesn’t sit well with me.  The stunt did benefit the USO though which is a bonus, but I can’t see that organization being too thrilled about the method of fund raising.  I guess you can’t bite the hand(s) that feed you.

What’s next?  A real revolver contestants can play Russian roulette with, but instead of a real bullet there will be a fart stinkbomb capsule that will get broken by the hammer.  That person will be the winner.  Sounds equally as irresponsible and dumb.

Ooooo i’ve got another one.  A .50 BMG that contestants can wrap their mouth around the end of, but instead of real cartridges in the magazine, they will all be duds except for one that is filled with Redbull!  That person will be the winner.

I guess you just have to “hope” no one slips in a real round.  Wasn’t that on one child’s play movie?

Thoughts?  More dumb ideas?

A new one from YouTube’s freddiew:

Freddiew was slipping for a while there…  I didn’t like his video concepts and I hated the execution.  I really liked this video.  Even the sound effects were great.

Thoughts?

One evening in the autumn of 1940 bombs fell on the course and Temporary Rules were introduced to allow for the consequences. Dr Goebbels, Hitler’s Minister of Propaganda, used the Club’s Temporary Rules as the theme of a broadcast by William (Lord Haw-Haw) Joyce: “By means of these ridiculous reforms the English snobs try to impress the people with a kind of pretended heroism. They can do so without danger, because, as everyone knows, the German Air Force devotes itself only to the destruction of military targets and objectives of importance to the war effort.” Evidently the Club’s laundry outbuilding was a military target.

You can’t say that the rules aren’t fair.

I was skeptical when I saw the video title because I though those guys were going to be magically hitting the clay on every shot. They didn’t, so that was believable.

The only cure for other golfers’ slow play on the course:

Apparently gunfire has a habit of speeding up the pace of slow people.

According to a study conducted by Responsive Management, 34.4 million Americans went target shooting in 2009.

For comparison, 28.6 million Americans golfed (a minimum of one round) in 2008, according to the National Golf Foundation.

I have only been golfing a couple of times, but I actually found it more stressful than a stress relief. Shooting on the other hand, even if you are terrible at it… it’s hard not to have a great time.

No word yet on the statistics of the popularity of combing guns and golf as shown in picture I used for this article. :P
