I am trying desperately to think of a way a guy MIGHT come out on top in a confrontation with a gun totin’ type,armed only with a bag of skittles.
Scenario one: fire the skittles with a powerful hand -made slingshot,like the kind my older brother used to make that would hurl a rock right over the grain elevator.
You might put out the GTT’s eye,and I don’t believe it’s possible to shoot accurately if you only have one eye.
Me and my friends discussed this in great detail when we were ten-year-olds playing “guns”, so I know it must be true. Oh, you can’t hit a running target either, we knew this too.
Scenario two: stuff several bags of Skittles into a sock and smack the GTT on the head,which only works if you are SO innocent looking the GTT will let you get that close.I have no idea if the packed Skittles are as lethal as say, a bag of rocks or buckshot,but maybe…
Scenario three: break open the bag of Skittles and when the GTT scrambles to pick some up and eat them, stomp his head into the pavement,which,of course, only works if he likes Skittles. If he’s a “Smarties” type of guy, you’re dead meat.
So, my conclusion: it’s okay to carry a bag of Skittles to a gunfight,as long as you have a friend sitting in ambush with a high-powered sniper rifle.
If you’re going to fill a sock with Skittles and smack him over the head, you’ll have to mix door knobs or bolts into the sock as well. On their own, the Skittles would only be a minor annoyance, giving the victim enough time to shoot you in your face.
