I Feel Pretty

KEY WEST, Fla. - A man wearing a purple women's bathing suit and carrying a flare gun was arrested after he told a bartender he was going to "get rid of all the dirt bags in Key West," authorities said.
Jeffrey C. Anderson, 55, was charged with carrying a concealed firearm Monday after he brandished the flare gun, which was under a skirt he was wearing, Key West police spokeswoman Christie Phillips said.
The bartender, who was not identified, was working in the downstairs bar of The Bull and Whistle, a popular Key West watering hole located on Duval Street.
"She reported she had seen a man, later identified as Anderson, dancing in the street showing tourists his private parts, and asking people for money when they took his picture," the news release said.
The bartender said Anderson then approached her, telling her he was going to get rid of the city's "dirt bags" before displaying the gun, police said.
Police quickly located Anderson and found an orange 12-gauge flare gun in his possession, Phillips said. He was transported to the Monroe County detention center. It was not clear if he had a lawyer.

So, the burning question has to be, how big was his gun???

Shoot. I wanted to know if his heels matched his skirt!

The tip of my shoe rubbed the edge of his dress. His flare gun lay in the street as impotent as this mad man, who'd interrupted my fishing, my drinking, my town, had been with his false bravado. Yeah, I shot him. Didn't mean to kill him. That was just just a bonus. - Ernest Hemingway upon reflection.

Shot or not shot, tell that bloke to pull his socks up and yank his skirt down and get on with things.
There are dirtbags to be bagged.

Man is not made for defeat.
