    Police Say Man Tried To Use Potato As Silencer For Gun

    MIAMI -- Miami-Dade police say a man stuck a potato on the barrel of a gun, believing the spud would act as a silencer and muffle the shooting of a woman.

    Police say Shane Thompson carved a hole in a potato with a spoon, stuck his gun inside and threatened to shoot the mother of his child. Thompson reportedly told her that no one would hear the shot, because of the potato's silencing qualities.
    Police say he never fired the tater-tipped gun, but instead hit the woman several times. Thompson has been charged with false imprisonment, aggravated assault and battery.
    While spuds are nutritious, the silencer potato is an urban legend dating to the 1920s. Thompson apparently isn't alone in believing the myth.
    A Miami-Dade financial advisor was convicted in the early 1990s for shooting one of his clients to death with a gun topped with a potato. Crime scene technicians found the potato under her body.

    You ain't been giving them bogus advice have ya? Just to screw with 'em?
