    I heard about this one on the radio yesterday. Absolutely hilarious.

    Steven N. Cowan takes dancing very seriously.


    The 66-year-old Wisconsin man was arrested after he allegedly became so angry watching Bristol Palin on "Dancing with the Stars"that he fired off his shotgun at his television, leading to a 15-hour standoff with state police.


    According to the criminal complaint, posted by The Smoking Gun, Cowan and his wife, Janice, were watching the show Monday evening when Cowan jumped and swore as the former vice-presidential candidate's daughter shimmied across the stage.


    He said something to the effect of "the ----ing politics."


    The complaint added, "Steven was upset that a political figure's daughter was dancing on this particular show when Steven did not think she was a good dancer."


    Cowan, who lives in the small town of Vermont, then went upstairs for 20 minutes and returned with a single-shot shotgun, which he loaded and fired into the television. His wife told cops that her husband had been drinking but she did not think he was drunk.


    Scared, his wife fled the house and called 911. Police remained outside the home until 11 a.m. on Tuesday when he surrendered without incident, sheriff's spokeswoman Elise Schaffer told the Wisconsin State Journal.


    The complaint said Cowan had been stressed out because of his financial situation and was currently receiving treatment for mental health issues.


    It is unclear if Cowan is aware that Palin advanced to the next week's finals of the competition on Tuesday night.

    The funniest part is that Dancing With the Stars actually caused it.

    Funny, or the end of human civilization as we know it???
