“Happy interlude?”

August 4th, 2005 · No Comments · Misc.

This seems like an odd place to whip out cute euphemisms:

A man who got angry with his wife because she wanted to cuddle after sex when what he really wanted to do was watch sports on television was sentenced to death for killing her with a claw hammer.

“The defendant struck his wife approximately 70 individual blows after spending a happy interlude with her,” the judge said. “Her desire to cuddle after sex does not justify the extremely violent, brutal response of the defendant.”

So, apparently, wanting to cuddle IS cause for SOME sort of violent response, just not the 70-hit hammer mutilation kind.
