Florida Fish Tank Attack? At Least It's Not Hamburgers

You'd never think of attacking a friend with a fish tank and a beer bottle over $3, would you?

Of course not, that would be stupid. Which may explain why Daniel Winter, 26, of Florida attacked his friend, Shaun Nater, 30, with both implements.

According to a story on, Winter had spent a quiet Monday evening at a strip club called Calendar Girls. A few minutes before midnight, Ashley Decicco, 18, and her boyfriend, Nater, picked him up and they ate a pleasant dinner at Burger King before going home.

(By the way, did you notice the age difference between Decicco and Nater? I'm just sayin'.)

As they drove home, Decicco asked Winter for 3 bucks to help defray gas costs. Fair enough. If you pick up a friend at a strip club, it's perfectly acceptable to ask for a little help with gas costs.

Winter, still full from Burger King and still. . . entertained by the strip club, said he couldn't come up with $3, because his rent was due.

According to the Pasco County Sheriff's report, the trio argued and Winter slapped Decicco while she was driving. So Nater turned around in his seat, and commenced to whuppin' Winter, while DeCicco was still driving.

That's when things got all tanky.

Winter grabbed the fish tank and started whaling on Nater with it. While Decicco was still driving.

But the tank just wasn't having the desired effect, so Winter grabbed up a beer bottle, and began hitting Nater in the head with it. While Decicco was still driving.

Then Nater took the bottle from Winter, and bashed Winter over the head with it several times until it broke. While Decicco was still driving.

Finally, after threatening to turn the car around if they didn't stay on their own sides of the car, Decicco pulled into a Denny's parking lot and called the police.

It's a good thing she didn't call the police from the car, because dialing and driving can be dangerous.

But hey, at least they were mature enough not to attack each other with hamburgers.

AYFKMWTS?! FBI Creates 88 Page Twitter Slang Guide


Did you get that? It's an acronym. Web slang. It's how all the teens and young people are texting with their tweeters and Facer-books on their cellular doodads.

It stands for "The FBI has created an eighty-eight page Twitter slang dictionary."

See, you would have known that if you had the FBI's 88 page Twitter slang dictionary.

Eighty-eight pages! Of slang! AYFKMWTS?! (Are you f***ing kidding me with this s***?! That's actually how they spell it in the guide, asterisks and everything. You know, in case the gun-toting agents who catch mobsters and international terrorists get offended by salty language.)

I didn't even know there were 88 Twitter acronyms, let alone enough acronyms to fill 88 pieces of paper.

The FBI needs to be good at Twitter because they're reading everyone's tweets to see if anyone is planning any illegal activities. Because that's what terrorists do — plan their terroristic activities publicly, as if they were…

Understanding 7 Different Types of Humor

One of my pet peeves is when people say they have a "dry" sense of humor, without actually understanding what it actually means.

"Dry" humor is not just any old type of humor. It's not violent, not off-color, not macabre or dark.

Basically, dry humor is that deadpan style of humor. It's the not-very-funny joke your uncle the cost analysis accountant tells. It's Bob Newhart, Steven Wright, or Jason Bateman in Arrested Development.

It is not, for the love of GOD, people, the Black Knight scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I swear, if anyone says Monty Python is "dry humor" is going to get a smack.

Here are some other types of comedy you may have heard and are just tossing around, willy-nilly.

Farce: Exaggerated comedy. Characters in a farce get themselves in an unlikely or improbable situation that takes a lot of footwork and fast talking to get out of. The play "The Foreigner" is an example of a farce, as are many of the Jeeves &…

What Are They Thinking? The Beloit College Mindset List

Every year at this time, the staff at Beloit College send out their new student Mindset List as a way to make everyone clutch their chest and feel the cold hand of death.

This list was originally created and shared with their faculty each year, so the faculty would understand what some of their own cultural touchstones might mean, or not mean, to the incoming freshmen. They also wanted the freshmen to know it was not cool to refer to '80s music as "Oldies."

This year's incoming Beloit freshmen are typically 18 years old, born in 1999. John F. Kennedy Jr. died that year, as did Stanley Kubrick and Gene Siskel. And so did my hope for a society that sought artistic and intellectual pursuits for the betterment of all humanity. Although it may have actually died when I heard about this year's Emoji Movie.

Before I throw my hands up in despair, here are a few items from the Mindset list for the class of 2021.

They're the last class to be born in the 1900s, and are t…
