Shoot the Freak!

"Check it, check it, check it out; the new game they're all talkin' about; the game that put Coney Island back on the map; anyone can do dis, anyone can play dis game: It's called Shoot the Freak. The rules are simple: There are none -- aim for the head. The only game you get to shoot at live, movin' targets. Three dollars for five shots, five dollars for ten. The more you play, the more addictive it gets."

A random reference to Shoot the Freak as a generic carnival game

It has to be seen to be appreciated; believe me. More on Shoot the Freak later (maybe).

Three thousand plus here;
and how many in Iraq?
Are we winning yet?

How long did they shoot?
Whom did they shoot? How many?
Rights group writes report.

Mob 2 scores big hit:
Metafilter item three;
photos on blogs, too.

(Mob 1, though lesser,
garnered spot on "Next Big Thing";
someone called the cops.)

Nota bene: the Metafilter posting was dated June 18, 2003, and was titled "The Love Rug."
