so wrong.

(but I laughed anyway.)

Read this little news item to Mike this morning over bacon:

John Joe Thomas, 28, of the first block of Sunshine Road in Upper Darby, allegedly told police he killed Murray Joseph Seidman, 70, because the older man had made sexual advances and that the Old Testament spelled out stoning as the punishment for homosexuality.

"I stoned Murray with a rock in a sock," Thomas said to police, according to court documents.

His reply:

"In a box? With a fox?"

I was actually thinking of this book when I read that sentence: http://www.alibris.com/search/books/qwork/10351498/used/There%20Are%20Rocks%20in%20My%20Socks,%20Said%20the%20Ox%20to%20the%20Fox

I used to read it all the time when I was a kid...had it memorized once, but alas, no longer.

I'm not sure that "stoning" is the correct verb. Once you start adding socks it more closely resembles simple "clubbing".

Though I can understand that since he didn't happen to be in the middle of the Judean desert and throwing rocks were probably in short supply, he had to practice conservation measures.

You're telling me a scared 28-year-old can't outpace a randy 70-year-old?

The ironic thing is that John Joe Thomas stands to get an awful lots of ox in his jox once he goes to jail and winds up with Bubba et al as cell mates.

With soap on a rope he can hope to keep the ox from his jox. But when the jailer locks him in a box with the ox he best claim the pox for in this ‘gated community’ his socks will likely be lacking their rocks. It’s enough to make a fella green…

Original word verification (before LJ login screwed it up): “aggad” Egad might be more like it.

Another sock related death. When will they realize that socks are evil...

I hope Pennsylvania gives him the shocks.

Upper Darby never fails to get into the news for the worst reasons.

He got a knock on the block from a rock in my sock for touching my... er... junk.
