Aloha, Mr. Hand

Headline: Paperweight Severs Calif. Teacher's Hand

A teacher who kept a 40 mm shell on his desk as a paperweight blew off part of his hand when he apparently used the object to try to squash a bug, authorities say.

A slightly excessive way to kill a bug, don't you think? Perhaps this guy used to work for L.A.P.D.

Wouldn't it be funny if after having his desk reduced to splinters, his face covered with soot, his hair plastered back like Don King, and his severed hand shaking on the floor, the bug scurried away anyhow?

Maybe he should've contacted Spicoli's Dad after having this accident. I hear he has this ultimate set of tools - he can fix it.

He's probably still eligible for workers compensation for the on-the-job injury.
