    Police: Man celebrating record deal accidentally killed himself

    ST. PARIS, Ohio (AP) Steven Zorn had put the pen gun to his head and clicked before, apparently thinking it was jammed and would not work. But on the third try, the tiny silver pistol went off as the 22-year-old budding rap artist was drinking to celebrate an impending record deal. He died at a hospital.

    I'm sorry but exactly where is the humor in this? God forbid you ever make a fatal mistake.

    But how much does it take to decide not to put a gun to your head and pull the trigger? Not just once, but several times - and how is that a celebration? Aim it somewhere else and pull the trigger, not at your own head! Definitely Darwin Award territory.

    It's a tragedy to the family - but, boy, talk about a dumb act!

    What is it about this tragic waste of life that makes you laugh? Of course it was a dumb move on his part to play with the gun but, do you really think that it is funny?

    I couldn't believe this when I read it. Man! Its hard to believe anyone would point a gun to their own heads, even messing around. I feel so badly for his family and friends.

    I find it funny too. The guy must have been dumb as a frigging stick! The way I see it, there is one less moron with a GUN walking the streets.

    Am I reading something wrong? I thought it said that the gun was in the shape of a pen. Trying to get the pen to "work?"
