Apropos of nothing political…
…here’s a story you don’t come across every day – or, at any rate, didn’t until these strange times.
Excerpted from a story at NBC – Los Angeles:
A 26-year-old Saugus man was in custody Tuesday for allegedly punching his mother during a fight over the family’s toilet paper supply.
Deputies were called to the residence near Plum Canyon Road and Mirabelle Lane in Saugus about 3 a.m. Monday, according to Shirley Miller of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.
The son had accused the mother of hiding the family’s toilet paper, which has become a hot commodity nationwide amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The argument escalated and he allegedly punched her, according to Miller.
The woman later told deputies she hid toilet paper from her son, adding that he uses too much, according to Miller.
Adrian Yan was arrested for suspicion of battery, Miller said. The victim declined medical treatment at the scene.
I’m glad Adrian Yan’s mother was not in need of medical attention. Under the circumstances, he could have wiped up the floor with her.
I hope they cleaned the back of the police van after he was in it…and I wouldn’t want to be the one who held his hand during the fingerprinting process…or the one who had to take a close look at the fingerprint.
Well, it doesn’t have to be all bad for him Yan. Maybe they have a bidet at lockup….uh, well, probably not.
Wouldn’t it be something if he had a girlfriend named Heather, who lived in another state? They’d actually be Heather and Yan.
OK, back to politics, where, even in normal times, there isn’t enough toilet paper in the country to clean up the mess.
