How the fook do you fail to blow your head off with the gun in your mouth?

He's in good company.

A Rochdale barber, depressive alcoholic and appointed executioner, John Ellis, did something similar with a revolver.

He was saved, treated and prosecuted for 'Attempted Suicide' and discharged.

A tortured man he succeeded with his straight razor what he couldn't do with a gun and cut his throat.

It takes blood and guts to be this cool but I'm still just a cliché.

Apparently, the worst failure is those who try to shoot themselves by holding a pistol to their temple. If you get the angle wrong, you lobotomise yourself, but survive leaving yourself a vegetable.
