When mortars are outlawed, only morons will have mortars

Danger, Will Robinson!

Danger, Will Robinson!

Tewkesbury, England: Armed with (real) machine guns, cops raid home of man who posted picture of his 6″ toy mortar on FaceBook. Took the Brits six weeks to get there after a citizen’s complaint, but by God, they tracked him down!

There were five police officers at the door, two of them carrying submachine guns.

They had come in search of a deadly mortar tube – spotted in the background of a picture that Mr Driscoll had posted on Facebook.

Mr Driscoll, 43, did indeed have a mortar in the home and promptly showed it to the squad.

It was a toy.

After inspecting the model mortar, the rather embarrassed team of officers apologised and took their leave.

‘I couldn’t believe someone thought it was real,’ said Mr Driscoll, a model maker, at his home in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire.

‘It’s tiny and quite clearly a toy. I can’t stop laughing. I think it’s hilarious.’

The mortar, or at least part of it, was featured in a picture Mr Driscoll took of an Action Man figure and a toy Alsatian dog.

He posted the picture on Facebook ‘as a laugh’ because he says he looks rather like the Action Man figure and owns an Alsatian.

The mortar was near to a TV remote control which showed how small it was. Nevertheless, someone called in the police.

    You post this as if you are surprised: you shouldn’t be.

    ‘Are you under the spell of media hypnosis? Take this simple test and find out’

    “Here’s a valuable self-test to find out whether you’ve been hypnotized (and controlled) by the mainstream media and its engineered false reality. After you take this test, watch the stage hypnosis videos I’ve selected for you, below, and you’ll be astonished to learn just how hypnotized most people really are…”
