Former Vice President Dick Cheney has shot another person in the face, this time as the honorary starter for the New York Marathon Special Olympics.
Cheney had asked if he could bring his own starting gun and had agreed to not actually fire the gun so that it wouldn't panic any of the runners.
The deal was that when he raised the gun, he and some other guests were to yell "BANG!" and the race would begin. But to make it look better, he brought his bird gun.
Of course this Marathon only goes for several blocks, not like the big one.
So Cheney aims the gun high and suddenly they all shout Bang! and the race was on.
However, Cheney suddenly grabbed his chest and in doing so, shot Mayor Bloomberg in the face.
Both men were rushed to the hospital and are doing well, although Mayor Bloomberg looks like he's had a really bad case of acne.
Cheney never apologized after he got feeling better, and left for his home in Wyoming. There were no charges as everyone who saw what happened stated that it was an accident.
"He always gets off on that accident excuse after shooting someone in the face", stated Mrs. Cheney. "He's used it even on our wedding night."
