Headline of the Day

I nearly shot my entire Supremo Coffee out my nose when I read this one in The Province:

Two-Time Hamster Killer Faces Sentencing

Now don’t get me wrong, I like hamsters as much as the next guy but I seriously had to do a double-take at the cover to make sure I was not reading a copy of The Onion when I got to this:

A 24-year-old Kamloops man who pleaded guilty to killing two of his girlfriend’s hamsters will be sentenced next month.

Andrew Michael Maxwell is believed to have killed the hamsters by flicking one to death and throwing the other against the wall after a fight with his girlfriend last April.

Flicking to death? What could the sentence possibly be? a severe indian burn? a Texas titty twister? 20 throat slugs at dawn?

I am really going to like it here.
