Sarasota, Florida - An elderly Florida lady did her shopping and, upon returning to her car, found four males in the act of leaving with her vehicle. She dropped her shopping bags and drew her handgun, proceeding to scream at the top of her voice, "I have a gun, and I know how to use it! Get out of the car!" The four men didn't wait for a second invitation. They got out and ran like mad. The lady, somewhat shaken, then proceeded to load her shopping bags into the back of the car and got into the driver's seat. She was so shaken that she could not get her key into the ignition. She tried and tried, and then it dawned on her why. For the same reason she did not understand why there was a football, a Frisbee and two 12 packs in the front seat. A few minutes later, she found her own car parked four or five spaces further down the parking lot. She loaded her bags into the car and drove to the police station to report her mistake. The sergeant to whom she told the story couldn't stop laughing. He pointed to the other end of the counter,where four pale men were reporting a car jacking by a mad, elderly woman described as white, less than five feet tall, glasses, curly white hair, and carrying a large handgun. No charges were filed.

    Had she fired out of pure anger, or lack of restraint, there would have been a huge problem, and a Schiavo-esque controversy on our hands as far as gun-control is concerned.
    I would love to have seen that aftermath though. If I was one of the guys that happened to, I would have hugged her. I couldn't even be mad about that; just shocked and amused. That scene belongs in something like a Farrely Brothers movie (Farrely brothers from Something about Mary/Dumb and Dumber Days, not Fever Pitch or anything terrible like that).

    And may I just plug HD television for a moment. Im on vaca from work and there is a Lynyrd Skynyrd concert on InHD at 1030 AM. This is vacation at its finest.

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".

Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.

Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.

In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
