July 2010: Crabb and Cox

 *Added 7/8/10
 Possibly the best headline ever written:

"Tired Gay succumbs to Dix in 200 meters"

True story.

I was sent the following article from the Clinton paper. Hilarious and inappropriate. I thought "man, this would make a great ITYM post!" and then realized that today was, in fact, July 1st!

Let's get 'er rolling! Here is a clipping from today's paper:

CLINTON, Iowa — A Clinton man has been charged with a felony after he allegedly hit a neighbor in the head with a cooking pan during an altercation.

Police were called to an apartment building at 143 6th Ave. S. at 6:30 p.m. Saturday and found Dewey Cox, 40, passed out on the floor of his apartment with blood on his face and head, according to court records.

A witness told police Cox and his neighbor,  Todd A. Crabb, 47, were drinking in Cox’s apartment when Crabb became upset with Cox, grabbed a metal pan off the stove and hit Cox on the head with it. Cox then hit Crabb back, and the two continued to fight in the hallway of the apartment building in front of other residents, according to court records.

Crabb also resisted police who tried to place him under arrest, according to court records.

Cox was taken to Mercy Medical Center in Clinton. Hospital staff told police Cox may have suffered a brain injury, and he was transferred by helicopter to University Hospitals in Iowa City. No information about his condition was available Tuesday.

Crabb was charged with willful injury, a Class C felony, and interference with official acts and disorderly conduct, both simple misdemeanors. He was being held Tuesday in the Clinton County Jail on $10,000 bond.

Cox and Crabb Appliances?

Crabby Cox heating and air conditioning?

Crabb, Cox, Swallows attorneys at law?

Thanks, life!
Let's do it.


  1. Crabby Cox??? Too many jokes...*explodes*

  2. I know- don't these people know what they're typing?

    No shit, this was a headline on

    "Tired Gay succumbs to Dix in 200 Meters"

    That might be ITYM of the year!


  3. Oh, and in the preceding article, here was a quote:

    "It wasn't bad, but I was a little fatigued toward the end," Gay said. "I tried to stay relaxed and bring it home, but it wasn't enough."

  4. The light burned out at the local cinema. One letter was out. What was left?


    That's where I'M going!

  5. Found one!

    "When my package arrived, I tore it open and was immediately overwhelmed by the beautiful scent"


  6. HAR! I think people know exactly what they are writing! haha!! Thanks for visiting my bloggy! Looking foward to seeing what your drama is! J/K kind of.


  7. No, sadly most people that utter these comments are just that naive. Kids.

    Had this in an email today:

    "You stated that the new Z-IDOC scheduled for Mar 11 will handle all of your

    Well.. I don't know if it could handle ALL of your DICs, but probably a lot of them.

    Cripes man!

  8. Well, it's almost the end of the month, and unless anyone has any objections I'm definitely feeling the Gay/Dix headline to be the monthly winner.

    And also a strong contender for ITYM of the year!

  9. "but he was clearly not a man who spends all day thumbing his blackberry."
