The Knife Was Half As Sharp As This Pun


Question: How many wounds does it take to get the police to come to your house at 3 a.m.?

Answer: Just one, but that's Plenty.

Put another way, Lyle Plentywounds, 31, was arrested at his Boise home last Friday after he allegedly used a knife to repeatedly slice a relative during a fight. And now, with the proverbial "nut" of the story out of the way, the author can finally add that his own initial joke on Plentywounds' name was brilliant. Hopefully Lyle concurs. And if he doesn't--yet--he could have up to 15 years to get over his anger, if convicted of aggravated battery. The wounds to the victim were not life threatening.
