Maybe It Was Just A Pipe Dream

At Least He Had A Blast Doing It

An Italian council worker is getting the bullet from his bosses - after he was shot on a hunting trip when he should have been working. He told bosses he was going out on an all-day job to help fix some water pipes. But he went hunting in a nearby forest with friends - and spent 20 days in hospital after a companion accidentally blasted him with a shotgun.

FOOTNOTE: Parting shot.

Very funny, I love all of your puns! Our neighbour's boyfriend only has four toes, he swears blind it was a hunting acident! We are not so sure! It took a long time for the bicycle to arrive in these there hills! Debs x

Gee, I wonder how long it will take his family to recover from his addiction to hunting and his companion's carelessness. (shaking head in wonder) I guess making mistakes like thinking you won't get caught is human nature. Not sure whether to laugh or cry for his wife.

Cheers!

Some people have all the luck. The bad luck anyway.

Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to decieve.

I don't suppose his hunting partner was a certain Veep from the USA?

P.S. Was he hunting with Dick Cheney?

UH-OH. I just saw Sandi's thinking the same thing. Now I'm really worried.
