WWW: Lawnmower Execution

In this edition of Weird World Wednesday, I submit to you this Associated Press article:

A 56-year-old Milwaukee man is accused of shooting his lawn mower because it wouldn't start.

Keith Walendowski has been charged with felony possession of a short-barreled shotgun or rifle and misdemeanor disorderly conduct while armed.

According to the criminal complaint, Walendowski says he was angry because his Lawn Boy wouldn't start Wednesday morning. He told police: "I can do that, it's my lawn mower and my yard so I can shoot it if I want."

A woman who lives at Walendowski's house reported the incident. She says he was intoxicated. Walendowski could face up to an $11,000 fine and six years and three months in prison if convicted.


  1. Brother - I KNOW how he feels!!!! NO MORE two strokes for me, they are sent from hell to disrupt our faith. Brushcutters, chainsaws, mowers - anything pull start, there is trial in those machines.

  2. He should have whacked it with an ax.

  3. This is the inevitable consequence of forbidding lawn mowers to carry concealed firearms.

  4. Keep blogging and you'll keep pastoring... ;-)

  5. Thanks for the encouragement MTR.. several folks have told me something similar.
