I had this cute little blog about Ivy floating around in my head and then I read the news online. You really can't make this shit up.
First there is the headline to draw you in, make you want to read more:
Woman shot by oven while cooking waffles
Really? Apparently this little lady, (she was 18) was making waffles, in an oven, at her friends house and failed to notice he stored the magazine from his .45-caliber Glock 21 in there.
Anyway, after being sprayed by shrapnel, she picked some of the pieces out of her legs and chest, and then, she took a bus to the hospital. What a considerate girl! I'll make you waffles and when your oven shoots me, I'll even take the bus to the hospital! She probably even knitted him some socks on the ride. She's a keeper.
So, she's fine, the guy's gun was totally legal, registered and everything. Apparently there is no IQ test to get a gun permit, but whatever.
There are so many things wrong with this story, I mean, who makes waffles in an oven?
What have we learned today boys and girls?
Listen to your mother. If she had only listened to her mother this would have all been avoided. How many times has your mother told you not to heat up the entire oven for one little waffle, throw the thing in the toaster and be done with it.
