Surprise, Man!

Read an article today about a man who accidentally fired a gun while in a Walmart.


What was interesting was the headline and first line of the story:

Surprise man arrested after gun fires at Walmart

Authorities said a Surprise man has been arrested on suspicion of endangerment when the gun he was carrying discharged inside a Walmart in El Mirage.

This article was published across the nation and the world (here it is in a British paper).

As far as I can see, no one thought it worth mentioning that a “Surprise man” is a man from Surprise, Arizona.
