George had settled into his recliner, his dog at his feet, the remote in his hand, and beer and snacks at the ready. Just as the game was getting underway, his wife, Deanna came in to adjust the blinds and ask if he wanted anything else. "George" she said, "Guess what I just read on Facebook? Jeanne posted a link to an article about a woman who just flipped out and tried to strangle her husband while he was watching the Super Bowl last year, but fortunately he overpowered her and called the police. Isn't that just crazy?"

"Yeah, that's nuts", George agreed. "Some people are real whack jobs. I'm glad you're not like that. You don't mind me watching the games do you?"
"Of course not, dear" she crooned, "after all a man needs to relax and feel that his home is his castle."
"By the way, what happened to the woman?" he inquired. "That was attempted murder. Was she convicted...is she in jail?"
"Oh my no! On her attorney's advice she pleaded temporary insanity and was acquitted.* She then divorced him and took the dog."
George eyed her cautiously. The game was going on but he wasn't watching. He just sat there staring at his wife. Finally he spoke. "Honey, how would you like to have lunch at Emilio's and maybe go to a movie?" he asked as he switched off the TV.
