Mamas, Don’t Let Your Sons Grow Up to Be… This Guy

File this under “So Sad It’s Funny.”  CBS Charlotte reports that Salisbury Police apprehended a man employed by a local barbecue restaurant for peeping on his mother-in-law.  What’s funny about that?  Well, it was the glorious stench of barbecue that helped police catch the criminal.

According to CBS Charlotte, the victim “told police that she smelled barbecue coming from outside her home. Knowing her son-in-law works at a local barbecue restaurant, she grew suspicious.”  I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess that the victim would prefer her son-in-law not refer to her as “mom.” Just a hunch.

You can’t make this stuff up, folks.  God bless America and its muckraking journalists.

  1. It would probably make a good Monty Python and the Holy Grail routine:

    Bridge Keeper: Stop! He who pass the Bridge of Doom must answer me these questions three, ere the other side he see.

    King Arthur: Go ahead, Bridge Keeper.

    Bridge Keeper: WHAT is your NAME?

    King Arthur: I am Arthur Pendragon of Camelot.

    Bridge Keeper: WHAT is your QUEST?

    King Arthur: I seek the Holy Grail!

    Bridge Keeper: WHAT…is North Carolina barbecue made of?

    King Arthur: What do you mean? Lexington or Eastern-style North Carolina barbecue?

    Bridge Keeper: Eh? I don’t know that…*SPROING* aiiiiieeee!

    I’d guess the peeper reeked of Lexington-style barbecue, since the crime took place in Salisbury.
