What happens when you stuff a shotgun with a carrot like Bugs Bunny and then shoot it?

If you were a child once upon a time, you may have remembered Bugs Bunny cleverly stuffing Elmer Fudd’s shotgun with a carrot so that when Fudd fired his shotgun, it would explode in his face. But would that actually happen if you did that in real life? Demolition Ranch, answerer of life’s questions about weapons, tests out that infamous cartoon scenario and finds that the carrot doesn’t stop the shotgun slug at all (it still shoots fine), it just destroys the barrel of the gun in the process.

So Bugs Bunny couldn’t have saved himself from Elmer Fudd, but he could have saved another bunny.
