Chicken Poop Trebuchet

Every night Joe Weston-Webb loads chicken droppings into a 30ft catapult and primes a cannon that used to fire his wife with a railway sleeper, all in the name of security... Mr Weston-Webb, 70, has rigged up Britain's biggest anti-burglar device after being targeted by vandalism, break-ins and even an arson attack... The businessman has even put up a sign outside his property reading: "WARNING. These premises are protected by Smart Poo and railway sleeper projectiles."

A Hope In Hell

This really tickled me. Taken from Morpheus' duel with Choronzon in Sandman #4. Ah, the crossroads of politics and comic books... Feels like home.
