Woman Hits Man With Hammer
Sunday, 2007 June 10 - 10:45 am
No, really.

Surprise! A Salt Lake City woman, Amy Ricks, told her husband Joel that she had a surprise for him. She blindfolded him, then proceeded to hit him on the head with a hammer as she spun him around.

A hammer. On the head.

Joel was able to take off the blindfold, at which point he saw that his wife had a knife, sleeping bags, and plastic bags nearby. He escaped and called police; she was arrested and could face up to 15 years in prison for attempted homicide.

I'm not sure what the craziest part of this story is:

- A man trusts his wife enough to let himself be blindfolded, even though there's clearly something wrong with their relationship. The only thing I can think of is that he believed the "surprise" would involve nakedness, and two other women.

- A woman gets the idea that hitting a guy with a hammer will be enough to knock him out. (Tip to would-be-assassins: You'd have to hammer pretty dang hard to achieve a knockout... it's not like hammering a nail.) I wonder if she thought it would be like a cartoon, and a four-inch-long lump would rise up out of the guy's head as little birds twittered around him.

- The woman is so confident in her hammering ability that she doesn't think to HIDE the knife and the body bags before swinging away. I mean, if it were me, I would whack the guy with the hammer, and if he didn't go down, I would say it was an accident. And I would pretend I was hanging up a picture. A picture of naked women.

I thought about trying that once but I knew it probably wouldn't SHUT HIM UP, so I just left.

Perhaps she was looking for ways to 'liven' up their relationship and just misinterpreted 'nailing' him?

Oh, and the knife was for 'protection,' the sleeping bag was clearly for sleeping, the plastic bags were for cleaning up the mess (if you know what I mean), and spinning him around was supposed to help him 'unwind' from a long day.

I honestly don't see what the problem was. If anything she should be arrested for misinterpreting the word "kinky."

Puts a new twist on spin the bottle--spin the hubby and tell him you will give him a knock out kiss
