Re: Modern weapond
Not to get too serious but there was an article in one of Canadian papers a while back where an assault on a cab driver was committed by a guy with a toothpick that he held to the driver's throat and made him drive around all night in circles.
Apparently, the cops couldn't stop him because they couldn't yell out the line "Drop that toothpick or I'll shoot." without laughing.
(only the first part of the story is true, actually)
