Now the War Story

It was nearing closing time and there were no customers in the store when a guy came in. He browsed the shelves and soon approached the counter with a can of peas. He put the peas on the counter and asked the clerk for a pack of cigarettes. 

The cigarettes were contained in racks stretching from below the counter level down to the floor. The brand the guy requested was not popular and was at the bottom of the rack. The clerk, an older woman, bent down to get the cigarettes. As she retrieved the cigarettes the guy laid his penis on the counter, at the clerk’s eye level. She picked up the can of peas and slammed it down on his exposed penis. The impact immediately incapacitated the pervert.

The clerk had enough time to call the police. When the police arrived he was still on the floor. The police promptly arrested him.

As he was being led away, the clerk had the last word. “Next time you try that, buy a loaf of bread.”

It is commonly accepted that anything that can be used to inflict serious bodily injury is a deadly weapon. By any measure, a loaf of bread wielded as a club doesn’t make the cut.
