...the box, which hit Clare-Gray on his "big belly" shouldn't have hurt him "because he's fat."

A box sits around here for the better part of a year. DW has no worries. I go for cookies and cake.

I find her anger completely understandable and her actions more or less so.

Imagine if he used the expensive dressmaking scissors to cut his toenails. Would it not be perfectly within bounds to stab him with it?

Totally understandable. It's risky to get between a woman and her chocolates!

He should be grateful she didn't kill him.

Although this is seemingly humorous, it shows how much you can screw someone over by arresting them, even if on flimsy charges.

The charges were eventually dropped, but she was stuck with a $7,700 legal bill.

Brawl over fried chicken leaves one dead - WFSB 3 Connecticut

Chicken must be better than chocolate.
Not too long ago we talked about the story of a woman who threatened her brother with a kitchen knife because he ate her BBQ ribs. Now, there's a fat cop who ate all the chocolate of his ex-girlfriend, and a man stabbing another to death over a chicken drumstick.

These are ominous signs of the decay of society. When a person has to use deathly violence to defend his/her ribs, chocolate pieces, a drumstick, what is next? Don't they know that a girl's chocolate is sacred? When will people learn to keep their hands off somebody else's food?

Indeed, if he'd just gone ahead and eaten the whole box, she might have forgiven him. She lived with him - she knew he was a glutton. But no, it was the scorn and disregard he showed by "saving" her...the two least desirable pieces in the box. And we know what they say about a woman scorned!

I am glad we are all together in this. There may still be hope for society.
