No beer led to ceramic squirrel stabbing, police say

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 06:52 a.m. HST, Dec 28, 2013

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. » South Carolina authorities say a 44-year-old woman angry at a man for returning home without beer on Christmas beat and stabbed him with a ceramic squirrel.

The Charleston County Sheriff's office says in a report that deputies found a man covered with blood when they arrived at Helen Williams' North Charleston home early Wednesday. She told investigators the man fell and cut himself, but couldn't explain why her hands and clothes were also bloody.

Deputies say the man said Williams was so angry when he returned without beer because stores were closed on Christmas Eve that she grabbed a ceramic squirrel, beat him in the head, then stabbed him in the shoulder and chest.

Williams was in jail Friday and charged with criminal domestic violence. It wasn't known if she had a lawyer.

No beer? Well, in that case the squirrel stabbing is completely justified. He's fortunate that squirrel wasn't used on his nuts.

Maneki_Neko, you're entirely right! After all, the little lady probably spent all day searching the highway for road kill then after taking them critters home, gutting them and making road kill stew. Thus, after slaving all day, how dare her man have the nerve to come home without beer or at least moonshine, them bootleggers never close on the holidays or weekends. This is a case of justified assault; he deserved a good thrashing. Just like how she would have deserved a good beating if she didn't put out after dinner if they did have moonshine with dinner. One needs to spend time in the south to appreciate the part of the USA that is civilized and why the Duck Dynasty family is for real and not just actors pretending.

Reminds me of the time many years ago when some kid tried to steal my dad's beer from his fridge outside the house, and he chased the kid down several blocks away to get his beer back. Several police cars arrived too to assist, since they probably understood the mindset of my dad and the seriousness of this crime stealing his beer. Alcohol is pretty much the alcoholic's most prized possession that you should never mess with. :)

Where is the outcry to stiffen laws for the purchase and possession of ceramic squirrels? Can you buy these weapons over the counter without a background check?

Can you kill 20 small children and a handful of adults in a matter of minutes with a ceramic squirrel? Don't think so. It's these m0ronic type statements that show how delusional gun nuts are.

To answer your question : absolutely - just ask any Arab terrorist and they can show you exactly how this is done with simple hardware store chemicals and a ceramic squirrel.

Actually, you didn't answer the question. You proposed a bomb, which is different than simply using a ceramic squirrel. Like I said, gun nuts are delusional to the point of not knowing the sky from the ceiling.

Good thing it wasn't something bigger like a ceramic rabbit, dog or cat.

The story is not about Mufi, not about gun control...it's about ceramic squirrels. You guys will just have to be patient until your personal obsessions come up again.

It's really just too easy. Just yell "Mufi" and good old Keith unsticks his lips and rushes into the defense. At least with Beteljuice you had to say it three times. Breaks me up.
