The USA Today chainsaw bayonet
courtesy usatoday.com

The gun gurus at USA Today attempted to explain, for some reason, not only the features of the Ruger AR-15 used by the demented coward responsible for the Texas church massacre, but the “possible modifications” one can make to an AR as well. Including, naturally, the ever-popular chainsaw bayonet.

Wait. What? Yup. This actually happened. See USA Today’s video below, followed by a small sampling of the internet’s hilarious, meme-laden response…

To be fair, chainsaw bayonets do actually exist. I mean, they’re an $800 gag gift movie prop but, much to everyone’s surprise, somebody did really design one and does [attempt to] sell them.

Anyway, on to the memes!…

  1. Ban all of it. No one needs that for hunting. Sporting use only! (Holds up mini 14 with under barrel crossbow and extendable fishing pole attachment)

  2. The legacy media establishment has become a parody of itself. I would have said it’s beyond parody, but obviously nothing is unparodyable (that’s totally a word).

    I think my favorite one is the blamethrower. It reminds me of Mystery Men.

    • I was thinking just yesterday how most action films involve guns, yet most actors denounce them. Samuel L. Jackson pissed me off with that,” just put the gun down” line of,,,,

      • Totally agree. All action movies involve lots and lots of firearms yet Hollywood somehow denounces their use. There are a lot of anti actors.

      • …and then played in the QT movie “Hateful Eight”.

        Haven’t watched that or any other SLJ movie since his unfortunate comment.

      • Not to mention that Hollywood has exemptions written into California laws so they can use firearms not allowed for the general citizenry. That’s because they’re more responsible, right? Just ask Spacey, and Weinstein.

  3. Did you know that it is impossible to eat lunch while rolling around on the floor laughing? LOL I love the corgi attachment, since I love corgis… but the “blame thrower” is the winner by a mile.

    All better now, finishing lunch. 🙂

  4. It’s criminal how these news orgs take advantage of their oblivious and ignorant readers like this.
    Snake oil media is what it is.

    • Agreed. That was my first thought. I was recently talking with a social media marketing “expert” and he mentioned that being wrong gets you more traffic and engagement. Basically, that it’s a good idea to include something in articles or YouTube videos that’s wrong, as it will cause people to comment in order to correct you, discuss it in the comments, and share it with their friends, etc. I guarantee you USA Today has had more traffic from this than they’ve seen in months. It’s almost too silly and hilarious to be genuine, but it has gone viral like you wouldn’t believe.

  5. to be fair, the chainsaw bayonet thing falls into roughly the same category of dumb crap youtubers put on an ar to make a video that included bump fire stocks.

  6. In that last meme the dog isn’t wearing eye or hearing protection! We really have to start taking safety seriously people!

  7. Guess I’m the only one that attached an A10 Wart Hog to the top rail and a Glock brand Glock to the underside rail. The side rails hold a coffee maker and a Minute Man 2 missile…

  8. Nobody should be allowed to carry more than 5 chainsaw bayonettes. Please contact your city council to write a restrictive law about this.

  9. Great post. I used to be checking continuously this blog and
    I am impressed! Extremely helpful info specially the
    remaining part 🙂 I care for such information a lot.

    I was looking for this particular information for a very lengthy time.
    Thanks and good luck.
