UNE 25--In an unprovoked attack, a 7-Eleven customer was injured when a fellow patron threw a glass jar of Tostitos salsa at him with such force that the container broke on the victim’s back

In his defense, he had left his glock in the car, so when he reached for a jar of 'guac instead, he was distracted and grabbed a jar of salsa by mistake.

Urgh! The headline is an example of one of my big pun peeves: an extra syllable. "Man Is Charged With A Salsa And Battery." Noble effort, but I woulda gone with "...a salsa'n' battery." Or even "...a salsa battery." Not perfect, but better.

Still, it's not as criminally egregious or as obviously solved as a headline I saw once about actor LeBouf, which said he wasn't "SHIA ABOUT" somethingsomething. 🤦

Considering his rap sheet, He won't be a civilian for very long.


He's also been arrested in the past for stealing a Choco Taco ice-cream bar from 7-11.
I could go for one of those right about now.

Thankfully, the perp didn't use a "battle burrito" as many of us here in the Southwest call gas station and convenience store bean burritos deep fried in a cauldron filled with some kind of boiling oil. If you can't whack someone silly with one of those, you wait until they eat it, then call it even.

A good salsa is never wasted like that dude did. In many Texas Counties wasting quality salsa of at least medium heat is a hanging offense.
