Austin Legislator Kirk Watson Is Pretty Funny

So, as everyone now knows, Rick Perry shot a coyote with a gun. While running. Maybe he stopped to shoot him. I’m unclear. Anyway, he shot a coyote.

Well, State Sen. Kirk Watson revealed in a letter to constituents that Perry is not the only one that can run and gun. In fact, he coins a term for it: “grunning.” A sample of his tale, which involves adopting kittens, running with them on leashes, giant rats, and the same kind of gun Dirty Harry carries:

“Instinctively using my graduate-level knowledge of physics and billiard angles, I quickly fired off five shots, taking out ten of the giant rats. Another one lunged at me and I shot him right in the gut.”

I can’t imagine why, but I’m thinking that Watson is perhaps alleging Perry has been telling tall tales?
