Assault With a Weasel



Police: Assault suspect mistook marten for mink
(AP) – Jun 10, 2011

HOQUIAM, Wash. (AP) — Police say a Washington man who was holding a dead weasel when he assaulted his girlfriend's ex-boyfriend was actually yielding a mink carcass.

Hoquiam police said the 33-year-old man had the dead animal with him when he went to the other man's apartment looking for his girlfriend Monday. The victim told police that he was struck after he asked the man why he was carrying a weasel.

He told police the attacker replied, "It's not a weasel, it's a marten," then punched him in the nose and fled.

But police Chief Jeff Myers told KXRO that martens haven't been seen in the area for 50 years, and that the dead animal was a mink. Both minks and martens are members of the weasel family.

The man was arrested later.

No wonder Nirvana's Kurt Cobain moved from there to Seattle...

I wonder how many times he's tried the ole weasel trick before, I'd be wary of any man weilding such a marmot, certainly enough to keep my out of range of a right cross!

At the same time, you also have to rein yourself in and stay mainly focused on business related topics. Your topic will also influence how personal or professional you want to come across in your style. Anything that wouldn't be appropriate to say to a client in person or in an email shouldn't be included on a business blog.

You can draw inspiration from others, but make sure you instill your blog with your own personality as well!
