There's a moral to this story:
Never irk a woman before she's had her first cup of coffee.

I think once you've stabbed someone 27 times,slashed their throat and then shot them twice, you are kind of beyond self defense. There is a show on the Investigation Discovery channel called Dangerous Persuasions that had a story about a Mormon woman; you would be amazed at how much this woman was willing to debase herself just because the guy told her he was a prophet (he was actually an atheist).
