[Associated Press,Kincaid, W. VA] A man at a
party popped a blasting cap into his mouth and bit
down, triggering an explosion that blew off his
lips, teeth and tongue, state police said
Wednesday. Jerry Stromyer, 24, of Kincaid, bit the
blasting cap as a prank during a party late
Tuesday night, said Cpl. M.D. Payne. "Another man
had it in an aquarium, hooked to a battery, and
was trying to explode it," Payne said. "It
wouldn't go off and this guy said, "I'll show you
how to set it off." "He put it in his mouth and
bit down. It blew all his teeth off, his tongue
and his lips," Payne said. Stromyer was listed in
guarded condition Wednesday with extensive facial
injuries, according to a spokesman at Charleston
Area Medical Division. "I just can't imagine
anyone doing something like that," Payne said.
I was at the golf store comparing different kinds of golf balls. I was
unhappy with the women's type I had been using. After browsing for several
minutes, I was approached by one of the good-looking gentlemen who works
at the store. He asked if he could help me. Without thinking, I looked at
him and said, "I think I like playing with men's balls."
I wanted to make an impression at a family reunion and remember the
names of all of the new husband's family members. There was one
gent whom I'd asked his name and tried very to remember but failed
repeatedly. Finally he bailed me out and said his name was Dick.
Without a thought I quickly said, "Gosh, how could I forget? You
*look* like a 'Dick'!!!"
