Grits Rage

Woman attacked her sleeping boyfriend with boiling grits: "They say that revenge is best served cold, but apparently Louisiana based Carolyn Brown hadn’t heard about it, because in a fit of anger she attacked her sleeping boyfriend with a bowl of boiling grits. And her boyfriend is now suffering from second-degree burns due to this act.

Carolyn’s boyfriend came home from work on November 7th, and then he got into a heated argument with her. In a rage, he said to her that he wanted to break up with her. After that he went to bed. Carolyn was understandably very angry and in a fit of anger she dumped a huge bowl of boiling grits on him."

Hat tip to Charlaine Harris.

"What's a grit?"

By definition, a grit is the sound a man makes when his woman his stuffed his mouth with material of a finely-ground, oatmeal consistency and then, literally, cooks his grits, a Southern euphemism for testicles and such.

I'm tempted to say she had true grit, but it's kind of cowardly to attack someone who's sleeping, who hasn't attacked you. I'll bet he really wants to break up now.

Didn't the same thing happen to Al Green?

Gary Dobbs/Jack Martin said...

no whaqt is a grit?

Oh, Darren beat me to the Al Green reference. Depending on who tells the story, Al was burned with hot grits thrown by (a) a deranged fan who had delusions that she was "Mrs. Al Green," or (b) a woman who was, secretly, Mrs. Al Green. Anyway, the story was tragic all round: Al suffered third-degree burns and the woman ended up running into traffic where she was killed.

And this is grits, a Southern dish made from corn that is so disgusting just to look at that I’ve never once tried it:

I like grits quite a bit. Now when they're thrown on my, you understand. Only for eating.

I grew up in a small city in Central Louisiana; to enjoy grits [made from hominy ground up and served hot] I like adding sugar or jelly, and butter. Same as if I heat up oatmeal or cream of wheat, served with jelly stirred in.
