HEADLINE OF THE DAY

From THE SEATTLE TIMES
(Winner of Eight Pulitzer Prizers)

And, surely, this has got to be the ninth:

Police say a man was carrying a dead weasel when he burst into a Hoquiam apartment and assaulted a man.

The victim asked, "Why are you carrying a weasel?" Police said the attacker said, "It's not a weasel, it's a marten," then punched him in the nose and fled.

Thanks to Laura for sending this gem in.

  1. “carrying a weasel”

    Boy, there’s a euphemism the world’s been waiting for! ;-p

  2. Well, I’m a different Paul but were I in that situation I would insist on proper identification of species too.
