Julius Seizure

Been There, Dung That

A Nottinghamshire businessman, 71, who set up a 30-foot dung-firing catapult to deter intruders has been burgled after police warned him it was illegal. The catapult, based on a Roman boulder-thrower, was originally built for a series of unsuccessful attempts to fire his wife, Mary, across the River Avon in 1976.

FOOTNOTE: Bolder and boulder.

I wonder if I can borrow it! Do you suppose it's illegal in the USA too?

Love the way his mind works...even though he may have been lacking in the common sense area, his imagination excels.

It took the local establishment this long, to realise he had built this? Now that's a well guarded secret!
