TROPHY ROM...UH, RAM

COLORADO -- A 48-year-old bar owner has been charged by police after shooting his computer 4 times and hanging it on the wall like a hunting trophy.

Charged with what? Shooting computers out of season? (HerzogVon@aol.com)

I wonder if those were 4 single shots..or two doubles. (Baitsmotel6@aol.com)

Before the first shot rang out, bystanders reported hearing him say in frustration, "Dude..You're gettin' a shell!" (Baitsmotel6@aol.com)

He must have been on AOL. It bytes. (lacee7700@aol.com)

He swears he didn't shoot it, but rather it ran across the highway and he crashed it. (StanYan1@aol.com)

Some people take it very hard when their HMO submissions don't get posted. (FreeLooseDirt@sbcglobal.net)

The bar owner was apparently furious after his wife revealed she had contracted a virus. (CeasarV21@yahoo.com)

He was reported to have yelled, "I'll show you a 'fatal error' message that I understand!" (Cantw82paint@aol.com)

That happened after he tried to access the 'hard drive' and received an error message about his 4 1/2" floppy. (Cantw82paint@aol.com)

The Apple computer was purchased circa 1985, so the man was arrested for killing an endangered species. (trlymurph@aol.com)

Colorado is leading the country with its harsh crackdown on neo-luddites. (Omegamagezero@aol.com)

It's nice to know that computers have rights in this state. (junkmailmagnet42@aol.com)

The charge.....default and battery. (tomcnagy@hotmail.com)

Today's winner, chough3499@aol.com, knows there's not a jury in the world that would convict this guy:
