Man Mistaken for Nutria Shot in Face

Perhaps this news story is the reason I've been getting a lot of hits for "nutria."

I suppose this is possible if the guy was wearing a wetsuit and looked like Wilford Brimley.

At least the 60 year-old speed freak who shot him drove him to an ambulance. I think he should get a pass on all those felony charges.

It was the father of the Jack In The Box kid a few days ago.

Man: Whoa, look at that thing, what is that?

Jack: It's a nutria, I use the meat it my 99 cent tacos - they are goooood.

Man: That's pretty big for a nutria, how many are there?

Jack: 30.

Yeah I pretty much am still clueless about ther term nutria (as shown in the above comment).

Open mouth - insert foot.

I saw that in the paper this morning and thought, "WTF?!" Nutrias aren't that big. I think it would be impossible for anybody in their right (and not drugged out) mind to mistake a full grown man for one.

Poor guy! The guy with the gun must be a real "winner". At least he took him to the hospital. I enjoyed the comments at the bottom of the article.

Pokerboss - I bet that guy was freaking smooth out.

Grimm - Hahahahah!

Grimm - I thought it made sense. I better re-read it.

Serena Joy - Maybe if the water was murky and just his head was sticking out though.

Texas Gal - I need to go back and read those.

Lorna - :)
