Radio news this morning.

Neighbors called police when they herd a gun shot from next door. Police arrived at the home and found that an 80 year old man had shot his TV with a shotgun. When asked why, the man said "that was the last time that his cable service was going to go out"!

He should of had D*.:grin:
