Police say a man was carrying a dead weasel when he burst into a Hoquiam apartment and assaulted a man.
The victim asked, “Why are you carrying a weasel?” Police said the attacker said, “It’s not a weasel, it’s a martin,” then punched him in the nose and fled.
And it’s not “A martin is a member of the weasel family.” That’s the last line, and what made me agree with the person who emailed me the link that, yes, this is the sort of story that MoeLane.com covers. No, the missing line is “Alcohol may have been involved.” At least, I pray that it is: the alternative implies that there are sober people out there are having more interesting lives than I am.
PS: Marten: martins are birds. Yeah, like I knew that before somebody else pointed that out to me.
