An Argument for Mashed Potatoes

Here’s how they do Thanksgiving in Georgia:

Jackson County sheriff’s deputies were called to a Nicholson home early Thanksgiving morning after a 43-year-old woman knocked her husband unconscious with a potato during an argument, according to sheriff’s reports.

The woman told deputies that she and her husband started to argue in the kitchen about 1 a.m. Nov. 22. He had used an expletive to describe her, and she threw the potato at him, hitting him in the nose and causing him to pass out, deputies said. The couple told deputies that they been drinking.

She told deputies that she didn’t mean to hit her husband and called police as soon as he fell unconscious. The man, who suffered from a large knot on his nose, told deputies he did not want to press charges. The woman was not arrested and no charges were filed.

So many places to go with this one. Was the potato just the first thing she grabbed? Was she aiming for his nose?  How big was the knot? How hard does a potato have to hit you before you pass out?

Moral of the story: Don’t call your wife names after you’ve been drinking.

Moral of the story #2: Always clock your potential wife’s fastball before you get married. Yikes.
