Here is one we can all understand, for me personally I would choose my laptop for target practise.

A 56-year-old Milwaukee man is accused of shooting his lawn mower to death because it wouldn�t start for him.

Keith Walendowski was charged with felony possession of a short-barrelled shotgun or rifle and misdemeanour disorderly conduct while armed. According to the criminal complaint, Walendowski said he was angry because his Lawn Boy wouldn�t start Wednesday morning. He was quoted as telling police: �I can do that, it�s my lawn mower and my yard so I can shoot it if I want.�

A woman who lives at Walendowski�s house reported the incident. She says he was intoxicated. Walendowski could face up to an $11,000 fine and six years and three months in prison if convicted.

The funny thing is that when police showed up they checked the gas tank of the mower and it was empty, so he didn�t have to kill it, just fill it.

HAHAHA, this reminds me of a IFU that demanded a repair on a mower I sold her a couple of months back.

The old victa was dry as a bone, I told her to fill it up and try it again before calling me withhow it went. lol.

That sort of thing happens a lot these days as I am always getting people coming in saying that they cannot start the mower and when I tell them it needs petrol to run they go red in the face. lol

The worst one I have had was the lady that had bought one rang ne a few days later in a huff because her mower had grinded and clunked to a stop.

I Asked if she had mixed oil with the fuel and was assured that the servo had done that. Intrigued by this I went for a look, it appears that if your catcher gets full enough it will kill it.

Emptied the catcher and it went first pull. lol.
