Today we ponder the cupcake.
A child’s party favorite, certainly. A dessert small enough to eat without much guilt. A treat that’s often pretty enough to do double-duty as decor.
But a weapon — a legitimate ‘book ’em Dano’ weapon?
Police in Chicago fell for it.
They charged a local woman with misdemeanor domestic battery Sunday after she allegedly threw cupcakes at her husband during an argument. When officers arrived on the scene, his head and shirt were smeared with icing.
Excuse me, but — so what?
According to the Chicago Tribune, the ‘cupcake war’ victim had been arrested three times in the last eight years on domestic battery or battery charges himself. Wonder if his weapon of choice was something as soft and cushy as a cupcake?
I’m guessing no.
Note — his charges were all dropped. Wonder if they will be as lenient with our cupcake criminal?
