What could possibly go wrong?

Man tries to loosen lug nut with 12 Gauge, hilarity exactly what you'd imagine ensues:

A man has been severely injured after attempting to loosen a stiff wheel-nut on his car by blasting it with a shotgun.

The 66-year-old American shot the wheel from arm’s length with a 12-gauge shotgun and was peppered with ricocheting buckshot and debris.

According to a sheriff’s office report, he was taken to Tacoma General Hospital with severe but not life threatening injuries.

Via American Digest, where Gerhard imagines the "thought process" involved. The last sentence is particularly funny.

He'd have been better off using said shotgun as a cheater bar for his tire iron, but then the article wouldn't be nearly as snark-worthy.
