This story needs a good punchline/pun headline.
Maybe he was bound over to keep the peas?
I bet that if this happened in the US then the robber would sue the owner for throwing water and peas...
Honestly, I really do think that would happen. The US sucks...
^^^Yes, it could actually happen that way in America.
Im surprised that being in England he wasnt let off because of the 'trauma' caused by him being attacked by two pensioners.
Haha, that's awesome. It also sounds slightly MacGyver-ish as well .
Why won't someone just hire MC Hammer. Damn those peas.
Something like that has happened, though I don't believe the person won, considering the extenuating circumstances. The law does seem to protect the criminals well, though.
As many times as I've seen cans of mushy peas, I wondered if they had a good use and now I know that they do.
If this had happened in America the couple would have been packing heat and the thug would have taken a few to the chest...not that peas won't do in a pinch.
At least they didn't make him try and eat it!
Yeah, originally I thought the story was funny. But after reading this/ thinking about it, it's actually very sad that it could happen. I just love reading some of the frivolous lawsuits, but at they same time, I hang my head in shame.
In the U.S., the robber would have been packing heat instead of a hammer. Somebody was supposed to end up dead here. Scalded -- ha! You Brits just don't get firearms, do you?
Anyhow, I thought the British had given up on mushy peas and had started eating vegetables that retain some of their actual nutritional value. Or is it the weaponized value of mushy peas that keeps on them on the British diet?
No mushy peas!?!
What else are we to eat with our pork faggots?
Clearly, nothing else would go.
Visualize Whirled Peas.
I think they should be glad they don't "get" firearms...though I wouldn't have felt sorry for the hammer-man had he been plugged...The weird bit to me is that the the old man was hit twice on the head with a hammer and was apparently not seriously injured. Maybe it was one of those big clown hammers that honks when you beat someone with it...
Well, I guess they've shown how dangerous hot mushy peas could be...maybe the grocery store should do a background check before selling them. We need to legislate against dangerous hot vegetables!
Or perhaps there should be classes on How to Defend Yourself Against Fresh Fruit... And Mushy Peas.
But without a gun, 16-ton weight, or tiger, what would they do?
I'm going to have a hard time getting that image out of my head, thank you very much.
I hope it makes you laugh as much as I did when it popped into my head.
