Wedgie Jackson

It's just like your mom always told you! It IS all fun and games until someone takes it too far, and then someone dies from an atomic wedgie.

I am not sure what an atomic wedgie is, as far as how it differs from a plain old, garden-variety wedgie.  And getting wedgied in the garden can be embarrassing if the neighbors are out in their back yard playing badminton.

I used to live near a church, and all they played was goodminton.

Be that as it may, I'm taking it that an atomic wedgie is a nuclear powered frontal attack in which the unwitting victim, or wedgie-ee, has his underwears yanked up toward the ceiling by the wedgier, who is usually a guy with a strong resemblance to Chris Christie.

But, it turned serious in Pottawatomie County, OK recently, when 33-year-old Brad Davis, of McLoud, found himself in the Ironbar Hilton, charged on a murder complaint in the death of Denver Lee St. Clair, 58. The late Mr. St. Clair was married to Tressia St. Clair.  Tressia is Brad Davis's mother.

So this guy ALLEGEDLY killed his stepfather, according to NewsOK.  Here's their narrative:

McLoud police and Pottawatomie County deputies were called about 10:10 p.m. Dec. 21 to 4 Shadow Lake. Davis said he and St. Clair fought, and he thought St. Clair was dead, according to a probable cause affidavit.

When authorities questioned Davis, he said St. Clair asked him to come over for drinks. The men began arguing and Davis told officers that St. Clair “came at him,” and they began exchanging blows.

Davis told investigators that he hit St. Clair's head, causing him to lose consciousness.

Then, Davis said, he grabbed his stepfather's underwear and gave him an “atomic wedgie” by pulling the underwear over his stepfather's head.

“I'd never seen this before, but when we first looked at our victim seeing the waistband of his underwear was around his neck,” Pottawatomie County Sheriff Mike Booth said.

The cause of death has been determined to be from blunt force trauma to the head and asphyxiation. The death has been ruled a homicide, said Amy Elliott, Oklahoma state medical examiner's spokeswoman.

While he was at St. Clair's home, Davis sent a friend a text message saying he was planning to harm Denver, according to the affidavit.

Not trying to make a laughing matter of this, but I mean really. Apparently there was trouble between the two men and look how it wound up.

The accused, Mr Davis.
You hear about stuff like this, and then you read that by the 9th day of January, a nine-day period that included a fairly large snowstorm and a couple of days of below-zero wind chill indices, in Baltimore, MD, sophisticated home to hipsters and bons vivants, there had been 10 murders already.

People who want other people dead are going to find ways to do so.  Our job as a society, at least one of our jobs, should be to help people learn to live together nicely.
