'Till Death Do Us Part, Part LXVIII

Every marriage goes through a rough patch now and again. But a better advertisement for The Silverbullet than this couple would be hard to find.

A MEXICAN couple were recovering separately after a marital spat got out of control and saw them firing guns, throwing knives and hurling homemade bombs, Mexican daily Milenio said yesterday.

In scenes taken straight out of hit romantic comedy Mr and Mrs. Smith starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Juan Espinosa and Irma Contreras fought until their house blew up in a homemade gasoline bomb explosion, the paper said.

Police called to the home in the indigenous Mayan Indian town of Oxkutzcab in the southeastern state of Yucatan arrested Mr Espinosa. Ms Contreras was taken to hospital with third-degree burns.

A local police official confirmed the report but declined to provide further information.

In the violence-filled movie about the fictional Smiths, Pitt and Jolie play married assassins ordered to kill each other.

Mr Espinosa told reporters he was glad his wife had suffered burns, while Ms Contreras said said she was only sorry she had not "hacked off his manhood" during the fight.
This reminds me of that old slip up that supposedly found its way in a newspaper: His friends could give no reason why he should have committed suicide. He is single.

Where on earth do you find this stuff?

Ms Contreras said said she was only sorry she had not "hacked off his manhood" during the fight.

Lovely. Reminds me of my first shift as night manager of the Dart Drug when I was 21. Some dimwit stabbed her husband on the pavement right outside my store...in the thigh, narrowly missing the family jewels.

I learned from this that cat litter is very good for cleaning up messes in the front of your establishment. Ain't love grand?

Aye, chihuahua...
