Southern Valentine

I was driving home from work yesterday and heard a commercial for "Howard's Gun and Pawn" on the radio. I wasn't paying too much attention, it was just background noise. Something, however, snagged my attention in time to hear

"Men don't forget Valentines is coming. We have gold and diamond jewelry. We have shotguns, nothing beats the perfect hunt'en rifle, or a handgun to express your love."

Oh boy, oh goody.. You know you live in the south when a commercial uses "handgun" and "express your love" in the same sentence.

Sadly, this morning I about this which happened in town last night. Long story short, an estranged husband had a fight in a Walmart parking lot and shot his wife and then himself.

I wonder if they will pull that commercial from the radio now?

  • Wow, you're right.

    Around here all the women bitch about the fact that their husbands are "always at the lease." (Deer lease, etc.)

    It doesn't even have to be hunting season for them to go. They leave on Friday afternoon and come back Sunday night.

    My wife? Would use a shotgun to keep me home if necessary. It's not even an option, with three little ones here.
