Snack Wars?

You just can't make this stuff up!

Every once in a while you find a story in the newspaper that makes you sit up and say, "Hmm." Every once in a while there appears a story that is right up there on the "Weird-o-Meter."

The following story appeared in our local newspaper on Saturday March 2, 2013. A quick search on Google appears to confirm it.

Chips and dip used in assaults

"There wasn't much beer left but apparently there was enough chip dip to go around at a home in eastern Ontario. 
A Lindsay, Ont. couple are facing charges for allegedly assaulting each other with chips and dip.
Police say they were called early Friday morning to a home in the community west of Peterborough, where there had already been 15 previously documented domestic disputes. 
When officers arrived at the scene of the disturbance just after 1 a.m., they found both people covered in chips and dip after apparently fighting over the last beer. 
A 39-year old man and a 41-year old woman both face charges of domestic-related assault and will appear in court on March 28."

I really don't know what to say to that, except, I wonder who ended up getting the last beer? As the old saying goes, "It takes all kinds."

  1. I'm reminded of the scene out of Pirates of the Caribbean... "Why's the Rum gone?"
