Tickle Bullets

Painless Gunshots
  [vote for,

Being shot is a very painful experience. Also, many people are very ticklish. So the idea is that when you blast a cap in someones ass, or hit them in the belly, kneecap, heart, face, or back....gunshots wont hurt. The will tickle the person. The will fall to the ground, laughing uncontrollably. Hence they will be immobilized and a proper arrest can occur.

An idea baked by [Steve_DeGoof]. I prefer it I'm afraid. [kuupuuluu, Jul 03 2006]


       Hello, helo. Welcome to the 1/2 bakery. Unfortunately, I am not in support of your idea for many reasons. I will limit myself to 2, so that others might have some fun, too. First, how would you know whether or where the intended target was ticklish? Do you immobilize them with a shot to the arch of the foot? Or a volley to the nape of the neck? Second, I would imagine those who anticipate being shot would protect themselves with tickle-proof clothing. Kudos for the effort, though.

       its the anticipation that provokes the response I think so the gun would need to look like a feather duster or something...

       Obviously the projectile are hypos filled with the "tickleshine" drug. Some people just don't know better. There's a variety called "orgasm bullets" that will please you inconscious.

       Are we feeling magical today?

       Lemme know where I can get those orgasm bullets. They would be just the thing to use in a failed suicied attempt...

It's hard not to read the next sentence after this beginning.

       This is definitely an idea to be recycled with the magic removed and replaced by a number of ridiculous contraptions and delivery methods.

       Maybe if we did a spin off of that "bone bullet" idea, but used highly compressed feathers...
