Here are today's Redneck Headlines:
#3 - AW, SHOOT

Residents of one London apartment building want to use surveillance cameras to eliminate a real pain in the butt, who's pooping in their elevator almost every day.

Local officials say they're hesitant to cough up the dough for the cameras because the offensive material probably comes from someone's dog. But folks who live in the place insist the problem is, shall we say, man-made.

One man noted, "If it's a dog it must have incredibly large bowels and a very large bladder."

Batman has gone over to the wrong side of the law, at least in one small Maine town, where a man claiming to be the caped crusader was thrown in jail after jokingly threatening to blow up a local hospital.

Christopher Schwartz, who calls himself the Bar Harbour Batman, wrote a post on his Facebook page saying, "I demand payment of one million dollars or I will blow up the hospital. Once the funds are secured, private message me for further instruction."

When police showed up with cuffs ready, Schwartz said it was all a gag and offered to publicly apologize, but was still hauled in. He now says he may sue, since the arrest constituted a violation of his civil rights.

A man who was leaving a Georgia gun show after buying a handgun for protection saw that plan backfire when he accidentally shot himself on the way out the door.

The man, whose name was not released, had just left the show with his new purchase and headed into the parking garage to head home when the gun discharged, blowing a hole in his leg.

It's the second time in two months that a firearm enthusiast's aim turned out to be untrue: About six weeks ago, a man named CharlesLake wounded himself while loading his new weapon in the same location.
