    I'd say that's a pretty crappy self defense weapon, but hey, what ever floats her, ah well... never mind...

    Hey, we should watch the toilet humor, this is serious. When TSHTF she plunged in head first and took care of business! Those punks are probably lucky she didn't have her firearm within reach, she'd wiped 'em up good then!

    Too funny!

    I forget, what was her last name... "Whipple"




    Sorry, OP. No disrespect intended to your thread. It's a slow day at the office.

    I love it... I'm very glad they didn't know how to "work her gun" or whatever kept them from using it on her.

    I don't carry in the shower, but it sure ain't out in the kitchen...
    All that said....
    It could be worse.

    These two guys still haven't been caught.

    I actually thought it was creative, too. The first thing she could reach was the plunger ... seemed appropriate for the criminals. I wish she had had her gun in the bathroom. I bet she will from now on. These guys broke in armed, then stole her gun and other things and beat her in the process. What creeps!

    I just hoped the plunger was freshly used prior to the use as tactical tool.

    Always a very appropriate choice of weapons when dealing with turds.

    knowing were it's been I think I would have run too if someone was swinging it at me

    Edit: all kidding aside they did get away with her gun. I get the feeling there was something in the house worth stealing.

    Toilet tank lid makes a good weapon. Haven't had to use it.

    Glad she's ok. I prefer these kind of endings to shower surprising scumbags.
