[second gunshot, Flanders is knocked down again]
Ned Flanders: Whew, luckily I was wearing an extra large piece of the True Cross today... I think I'll go inside.

Homer: What keeps doing that?

Fat Tony: I told you we should have bought more than three bullets.

Any reasonably thick book would have done. Nothing divine about it, but you just know the god squad will go around with blah blah word of god blah blah miracle blah blah blah.

The teens told him they had to "shoot a polar bear" to "get into the club" ... this is what it's come to *sigh*. I really hope they're able to find these men and remove them from the population.

I believe it was indeed divine intervention.  Same thing happened to me with a freshly shoplifted purchased copy of Sports Illustrated Swimwear Edition I had stuffed up my pullover.  The Goddesses therein protected me, I believe.
Praise the Centrefold!

“Years ago, my mother gave me a bullet…a bullet, and I put it in my breast pocket. Two years after that, I was walking down the street, when a berserk evangelist heaved a Gideon bible out a hotel room window, hitting me in the chest. Bible would have gone through my heart if it wasn’t for the bullet!”  ~Woody Allen~

So the same thing happens to a drunk with a flask in his pocket. PRAISE THE ALCOHOL GODS! It's a sign that we should all become drunks!
