i've got some dice; fancy a game of c***s?

Just as the producers of the Ed Sullivan Show discovered in the mid-1960s when they took exception to the line "trying to make some girl" in the Rolling Stones' song (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction and demanded that it be bleeped, getting all pearl-clutchy and censoring something entirely innocuous usually just leads to people filling in the blanks in their own minds with something far more filthy. Here's a good example:

My first thought (WARNING: swearing approaching) was: what the hell is a "cuntping machine"? Is that even a word?

For full comedy effect note also that the shooter was called Mr. Deadman, and that he claimed to be acting on orders from the golf club's manager, one Mr. Badger. You couldn't make it up. Unless someone did, which, on reflection, this being the Daily Mail, is quite possible.
