A stunning turn of events in last year’s under-appreciated Hoquiam Dead Weasel/Marten Assault story: IT WAS ACTUALLY A MINK ALL ALONG! Also, the guy was acquitted. So if you plan on breaking into someone’s home and punching them in the face, make sure to bring a mink with you, I guess.
As a chip off the old block, he adds:
This is the most beautiful set of sounds the english language could ever produce:
“The victim said that a man burst into his apartment. When the victim asked, “Why are you carrying a weasel?” police said the attacker said, “It’s not a weasel, it’s a marten,” then punched him in the nose and fled.
Neither man was right. Authorities say the carcass was a mink.”
It comforts me to know I have sired offspring with a true appreciation for the really important news.
