Good Morning, World! [Dec. 31st, 2008|11:10 am]

2008 ends on a high note with this story of an 88-year-old woman fending off a home invader by yanking his testicles:

TROUTDALE, Ore. -- A naked man fled the home he broke into Tuesday morning after the woman who lives there attacked his genitals, police said.

Officers arrested Michael Dick, 46, of Gresham, on charges of burglary, harassment and private indecency.

Officials with the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office said Dick, who was completely naked, entered the house through an unlocked sliding door at about 6:30 a.m. and pushed the 88-year-old woman face-first into a chair.


In that moment, she said she flashed back to an old news story about a woman facing a similar intruder. She remembered that woman survived by grabbing the man’s testicles. The man tore free, ran out the door, jumped in his car and drove away, deputies said.

The police caught him still lurking in the neighborhood, which leads to my favorite unintentionally funny line in this story of genital trauma:

Police said further charges against Dick are pending.

General Slocum's Gold has received yet another honor, being named Best Novella of the Year in Culture Geek's Year in Review roundup. This despite the fact that Slocum came out in 2007, not 2008, but I will accept this great distinction anyway because I am a man without scruples or honor! Huzzah!
