Spud Gun
STOCKHOLM (AFP) - A man in central Sweden was convicted of shooting potatoes from an apartment window with a home-made gun, Swedish press reported.

A court in Falun, central Sweden, fined him 80 days' earnings for firearms offences.
In August 2005, inspired by seeing a potato thrower on television, the 25-year-old man bought parts for the gun in a local supermarket, Soedra Dalarnes Tidning wrote.

The man and a group of friends met in a flat in Bojsenburg, in the heart of Sweden, loaded the weapon with potatoes and began firing from the balcony into the car park below, the paper Wednesday.

Authorities confiscated his gun as well as two sacks of potatoes found in the apartment.
Police tests showed the tuber cannon had a more potent firing power than a revolver.
