Upon discovering that a $.99 promotion for Beefy Crunch Burritos at his local Taco Bell had ended, a San Antonio man decided to shoot a BB gun at the fast food restaurant's employees. Oh, and he pulled out much, much bigger guns (an assault rifle and a handgun) during the three-hour standoff with SWAT negotiators back at his hotel afterward. Thankfully, no one was hurt.

The price difference was a mere $3.50 plus tax — he'd ordered seven burritos, and the regular cost of each was $1.49. Maybe someone should've told him it's only 88% beef?
