    "A true gentleman can play the banjo, but doesn't" as they say...

    This guy took it to another level.

    It's dated 1991 and apparently takes place in Ohio and Florida simultaneously......

    Where'd you find this?

    Ahhhhhhhhhhh I see. It's Miami county, Ohio. I don't mind that it's old, it was the name Miami that was really tripping me up. I wondered how something from '91 came to your attention, but facebook should have been obvious.

    It's a pretty odd story. The fact that he finished demolishing one banjo on her - then grabbed the other and went to work makes me wonder what was said beforehand! :eek:

    So someone was bludgeoned to death and that's funny because the guy used a couple of banjos? Would you find it funny if he'd used a bat, or an ax handle?

    Nope, not nearly as funny. Way to plain. If it had been say, a classical guitar or a violin, it wouldn't have been as funny. I think those have been done before. A banjo takes the cake though. Only thing better would have been death by accordion, although swinging that thing would take some muscles and coordination that I'm sure billy bob here prolly couldn't muster as quickly in his moment of pure anger towards his wife. Death by piano would be very cartoonish, and therefore the pure shock of it wouldn't register as quickly, as everyone would just be hearing classical music in the background and waiting for elmer fudd to show up. Death by tuba or sousaphone would be pretty epic, but I'm sure that would only happen in a band room or something, and kids are waaaaaaaaay to lazy to be offing each other with tubas and sousas and such; they've got guns for that. Getting run over by a full size marimba or a set of vibes would be pretty funny on the scale, but I would say that the perpetrator would have to finish the job with something else. Say a banjo that's just lying around. But now it's already been done, so it was cooler way before anyone else liked it, and therefore not as funny this time around.

    If it's been anointed by the ballsweat of Kerry King, then it is automatically the best for metal.

    Not metal.
