Man Traps Ex-Girlfriend's Mother in Fold-Out Couch; Comedy Nation Rejoices
Via The Smoking Gun, our latest favorite crazy person is facing a battery charge after he showed up at his ex-girlfriend's mother's house, asked to use the bathroom, and then allegedly folded the poor woman into the fold-out couch upon which she was lying. These people live in Florida. It is unclear, according to the report, "how long the woman was entombed inside the piece of furniture." What is clear is that this is fodder for comedians everywhere.
The woman was transported to a local hospital with an injury to her wrist and a backache. The couch-folder was arrested and is being held for the amount of a really nice fold-out couch. Imagine what this guy could have done with a Murphy Bed. No, actually, don't. Let's leave that to the professionals.
