Shooting Victim Extremely Grateful to Have Bulky Old-School Cell Phone


A fight between a tenant and a super up in Harlem this morning turned particularly sour when the building employee pulled out a gun and shot the tenant in the groin. Neighbors rushed to the scene as the victim screamed, “He shot me! He shot me!” The escaping super was caught on tape and is currently being hunted down by police. Meanwhile, the victim suffered only minor injuries, as the bullet was blocked from penetrating his skin by the cell phone that was in his pocket. Think about that, iPhone users. That little wafer-thin piece of metal and plastic isn’t doing anything to protect whatever part of you is right behind where you store it.
