Audition for Jerry Springer?

Strangest thing I've heard anyone say lately: "Look what you did to your mama's cheek!" said a grown woman to her brother, a grown man.

Strangest incident I've witnessed lately, which was a prelude to the strangest saying: A rather large southern family was gathered together - I tell you this so that you may better imagine the accents - and the grown son, a hulking white boy who dressed like he could will himself to be a gansta if his do-rag was pulled down far enough, "jokingly" (I guess) began to bully his mother by backing her into a wall and restraining her from whatever her intended purpose was (I really hope she wasn't headed for the restroom). She was laughing up to a point - perhaps this is normal play in their family - and then I heard a genuine and surprised "Ouch!" come from her.

Her grown son had "playfully" bitten her on the cheek. Had I stumbled upon the rest of the Lecter clan?

I'd like to tell you what happened after that, but I got my ass out of there with all due haste before my cheeks started to look like a delicacy, too.

Sorry, folks. This is what you get when I dig for change in my mental pockets and only come up with lint.

21 of you felt the overwhelming need to say somethin':

Wow. I believe Mike Tyson had a similar episode when in his youthful days. He eventually graduated from cheeks to ears.

Sounds like my family's Christmas parties.

These sexual fantasies are going to get you into trouble Bucky. Until then, turn the other cheek!

Were you in Columbus yesterday? That kind of thing happens here all the time. I just assumed it was some kind of hillbilly foreplay.

Lint? Bucky, if that story represents lint in your pocket, then I have enough to weave a sweater from all of the years I spent as a social worker.

Yay for Mr B being the first with the "turn the other cheek" joke!

I hear beef cheeks are a delicacy. Not that I'd know. I think it's important to bite your parents every once in while. It shows that you care.

Most white trash statement I've heard lately (but have been unwilling to post, for fear that person might stumble across my blog someday): "I've always said, 'If I ever win the lottery, I'm gettin' me a trailer house!'"

I am SO not kidding.

Tarrrrrrdist - I think after a while you just crave the cartilage.

MilkMaid - well, they were from Texas...maybe distant relatives? :)

Mr. B - Oh, it's allll cheek, allll the time here.

Mike - maybe it WAS foreplay. Man, I'm glad I left when I did.

SS Nick - a sweater might come in handy right now!

CKelli - at least I know that, no matter what I may do, I will never be quite as bitey as these folks were.

Pissy - I almost hesitated to mention they were southern, 'cause I don't wanna spread stereotypes, but I just had to so everyone could imagine the accents.
I'm guessing you do not come from a southern cheek-biting family, though.

Squirl - SOMEbody had to go there.

Dima - I wouldn't be surprised if he got 'round to all of 'em eventually.

Jim - I don't know about beef cheeks, but I know beef lips are a staple of beef jerky.
All those poor lipless cows...

LadyBug - well, you know, it's good not to dream TOO big...

Momma was too brash, so he was just helping her. Y'know... once bitten, twice shy.

Hey, I've had a tough week. This was all I could come up with.

Oooh, there's something inherantly wrong about that :D

I see nothing wrong with backing people into corners and biting them.

It's the most normal thing in the world.

Effie - that's kinda what I was a-thinkin'...

Mr. B - oh, you're SOMEbody, alright. A potty-mouthed SOMEbody...

Eclectic - that's OK - it's always alright to quote Ian Hunter around here. (and don't ANYBODY say "Great White" or I'll cut you, man)

Fuckkit - I'm thinking there was something genetically wrong there...

Zombie! But it's cute when you do it.

I'll take change from your pockets any day, Bucky. As long as I get to fish it out.

Are you sure that wasn't the McGraw's?

Remember, Quick Draw McGraw, take a bite out of drugs?
