"The commotion, however, caught the attention of bystanders who chased, mauled and arrested the suspect," he added.
Mauled...Oh yeah.

Great, now I'll be singing "Stuck in the Middle with you" all day.

That is pretty scary though, and way sucky for the lady.

How do they know he was on drugs?
2003-04-28 12:26:49 PM  
After a morning of pointing the bottom of my coffee cup at the ceiling, I certainly could qualify as drug-addled ...

*looks for glittery objects*
2003-04-28 12:27:09 PM  
Good thing he wasn't after her necklaces.
2003-04-28 12:27:30 PM  
The woman described the robber as male 5'9", and wearing Blue Velvet.
2003-04-28 12:27:46 PM  
She was probably deaf anyway.

Elderly people, geriatrics, lend me your ears...

He could've been a freak even without drugs. I object to this characterization.

MsPentyuth: From

We are always on the lookout for natural remedies and complementary health advice, below is a great remedy for sleeplessness.

English lettuce tea: the white latex that the stem on s lettuce exudes looks and acts like the substance extracted from the opium poppy. The whole vegetable has a sedative effect helping to calm restlessness and induce sleep. Lettuce tea is a well-known old English recipe for insomnia. Mint helps to counteract the slight bitterness of the lettuce and make quite a palatable drink.

Take 3 to 4 large lettuce leaves 300ml (half pint) of water. 2 sprigs fresh mint. Simmer the lettuce leaves in the water in a covered pan for 15minutes remove from the heat and add the mint. Leave for a further 5 minutes. strain and drink before retiring.

Sounds cool.

Assailant was heard saying "I want to eat your children! All praise be to Allah! I gotta get my face tattoo finished and beat Robing Givens!"
Police have no leads as to the identity of the suspect.

Eat More Possum - well funny!!
2003-04-28 12:51:53 PM  
one out of three assailants who eat the ears off old ladies tested positive for marijuana

What was the Tyson quote about somebody being his biatch or something? I think it was a reporter who asked him a question he didn't like. It was briefly a cliche here.
2003-04-28 12:59:51 PM  
C'mon, no "Can you hear me now?" line yet?

You guys are losing it

Ha! The robber is the obvious loser. He only got one ear!

"Takes elderly woman's ear"?

She is immortal. Born in the jungles of Mindanao, four hundred years ago, she is not alone. There are others like her: some good, some evil.

For centuries she has battled the forces of darkness, with holy ground her only refuge. She cannot die, unless you take her ear, and with it, her power.

In the end, there can be only one.

Doesn't quite work, does it?
