A Moo of a Story

I know I'm warped, but this story in the Post-Gazette yesterday cracked me up http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/08008/847591-100.stm.

Jason Michael Fife was charged by police in Lower Pottsgrove, Montgomery County, with stalking, terroristic threats, disorderly conduct and harassment after he sent a cow's head to his wife's lover in June 2006. The head was frozen when he mailed it, but it thawed while sitting on the victim's doorstep. Fife was sentenced to probation and community service. Believe it or not, he and his wife have since reconciled.

Fife's attorney, Henry Hilles said, "...in a civilized society a person cannot send a severed cow's head to anybody."

I want to know why not? The guy bought it from a butcher. Maybe cow's head is some kind of delicacy somewhere. No one objects when someone sends chocolate covered ants through the mail. It's not like someone put a horse head in your bed. (Although one of these might be okay.)

You can send filet mignon through the mail, so why not cow's head?

Joyce...To me the even funnier and more pathetic part is that the dear couple reconciled. Sounds like they deserve each other. Dumb and dumber! Oh, well, to each her own! Like the changes in your format--visuals. And, another thing, why doesn't anyone ever send us filet mignon? Oh well. You go Girl.

Two Fayette County step brothers shot and killed four cows on the first day of deer season. They fired 10 shots at the cows, mistaking them for deer.

Could be they were just trying to find fresh cow heads???

Hmm. Mistaking cows for deer on the first day of deer season. Something tells me alcohol was involved in this somehow.
