HONORABLE MENTION (in random order)

  – My brother got the rapid load/fire version for Christmas.
  – My parents were going to take my sling shot…but the NRA stepped in.
  – I’ll bet you a dollar you can’t knock an apple off my head.
  – I know it says so in the Bible, but you’re never going to vanquish the captain of the football team with that little pea shooter.
  – The next time someone tries to bully you, tell him your name is David.
  – I’ll be okay.  At least it wasn’t a rifle this time, Mr. Cheney. 
  – David, I know you’re upset that Goliath stole your girl, but can’t you just let it go?
  – No, I don’t know where Goliath lives, but I understand he’s a frequent customer at the Big and Tall store.
  – When you said you were coming over to shoot the bull, I didn’t think you meant it literally.
  – Why don’t you break windows like the rest of us?  Accidentally. With a bat and baseball.
  – When I said “bet you couldn’t hit that window,” I didn’t mean for you to prove me wrong.
