A Moment of Pause

This is very old news; it happened last June. But that’s the great thing about the internet; even if we miss the great events of history¬† the first time, they may come back around to haunt you if you’re ever foolish enough to do a Google image search for “newspaper headline alien invasion.”

From the Irish Times:

A fancy dress party in one of Dublin’s best known gay bars took a sinister turn when a woman attacked her ex-girlfriend Adrienne Martin in a row over a dress-up sumo wrestler’s suit.

After a year of acrimony following their bad break up, Sandra Talbot (32) assaulted Martin with a bottle hidden under her costume in a fit of rage at the George pub.

A Dublin court heard that Talbot lashed out at Martin in a row that began over the wrestler’s suit that Talbot was wearing. The row escalated as the victim waved at a man dressed as a Snickers bar, the court heard.

While my compatriots continue to sanctimoniously deride the many assaults on gay marriage by philandering, publicly-masturbating wing-nuts, I will be over here in the corner feeling like a heel for laughing at an incidence of violence. I must now state  publicly that I consider quite a few things not really okay to laugh at, or at least not funny, and same-sex domestic abuse is, frankly, one of them.

But she waved at a man dressed as a Snickers bar. That is all.
