Stupidity runs all the way to the bone
After reading White’s e-mail, then pondering a similar experience on my part, it would be my recommendation to replace the word “ugly” in the above statement with “stupid.”
It seems that a gentleman was in a pawn shop and saw a purse-sized Taser. Figuring it would make a wonderful gift of protection for his wife of 22 years, he made the purchase.
The Taser was powered by two AAA batteries that allegedly would send 100,000 volts through a would-be assailant, affording the victim a chance to escape before the attacker could regain his senses.
