There are some things you read that you have to shake your head at because you just can’t make it up. Take this story “Not-guilty plea in Lowell in alleged beef over tossed fries” from the Lowell Massachusetts Sun, for example. I absolutely don’t condone the actions of the parents in this story, not in the slightest. There is no excuse for lack of self-control whatsoever. The 26 year old stepdad is charged with throwing hot, oily McDonald’s french fries at his 11 year old stepdaughter. So what is the irony you ask? The stepdad pleaded not guilty to assault with a deadly weapon! Now that is irony. A “food” product that won’t rot being classified as a deadly weapon. No truer words have likelier been spoken, though I’m not sure they meant what you and I would read into that charge. What do you think?
