TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (275)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of United Press International (from Wednesday, June 23; link good at time of posting):
Police in Australia said two men dubbed "dumb and dumber" by investigators shot each other with an air rifle to see whether it would hurt.

Horsham police said the two 34-year-old men decided to have a "bit of fun" after drinking beer Sunday and decided to shoot each other with the air rifle to see whether the shots "would penetrate their skin or it would hurt," The Australian reported Wednesday.

Police said the two men shot each other at about 5:30 p.m. and apparently believed they had escaped injury until two days later when they were hospitalized with pain and had pellets surgically removed from their legs and buttocks.
