College boy turns wasabi into a fiery weapon



Have you doubted that love is a burning thing and makes a fiery ring?

Doubt no more!

Allow me to introduce you to 22-year-old John McGuiness. He was arrested last Friday in a jealous rage for allegedly slapping around his girlfriend with her $200 jeans. He had covered them with wasabi sauce, which he also threw into her car's interior.

The Smoking Gun, which has the full story, reports that "McGuinness was charged with three misdemeanors, including assault and battery 'by dangerous weapon/sauce.'"

Be sure to browse the 200-plus comments on the story. They begin with this one: "Total breakdown of social norms. What a wonderful world the liberals have created." Obama is blamed for the act of wasabi terrorism (sans drone). Further discussion devolves into misogynistic attacks on the woman for spending $200 on jeans, supposedly proving that she deserved her fate.

I'm a little bothered that the story didn't explain where you get a bottle of wasabi big enough to launder a pair of jeans. Clue me in.
