The Lighter Side of the News

From Alaska we hear that:

Two Anchorage men who told investigators they were horsing around with a “redneck flamethrower” set a 5-year-old boy’s head on fire and have been charged with felony assault and reckless endangerment…

“It was described to the troopers as an accident,” troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters said. “I mean a child, two guys, can of Quick Start, Bic lighter: How could this not go wrong?”

According to a troopers’ affidavit filed in court, Miller told investigators he’s been trying to toughen the boy up and the best way to do it is to “scare the s--t out of them when they don’t see it coming.”

That reminds me of the time I heard the manhole cover being slid off the storm sewer outside my house, and when I went to the door, I saw a man lowering a little boy into the sewer by his ankles. "Well, his ball rolled in there," the man said.

He wouldn't pull the kid out until I threatened to call the cops.
