What is a pot shot and why

What is a pot shot and why would you want it in your butt?

pot shot?

no one said pot shot in the butt...he was shot in the butt..with a gun

The headline said it. The

The headline said it. The previous poster was being sarcastic because of the awkward way the headline is structured.

And the last four words of the headline were ......

...... (wait for it) ....... (wait for it) ...... "pot shot in butt" !

It was a joke. Duh!

He is lucky

A little more to the left or right and that would have ended his Father's Day!

Teenagers with guns shooting AFTER they took his money. Not good for business. No sir.

These teens will have to move somewhere else now. Who will be next? YOU, the buyer? And will they kill YOU next time? Do you think they really care if they kill you?


How do they know the criminals involved are teenagers if they were covering their faces?

The same way that the victim knows the race of the shooters which, obviously, was omitted from this piece of "journalism".
