FOOD COURT: Assault with a Deadly Legume

A Washington high school student faces up to a year in jail and a $5000.00 penalty after being charged with assault by peanut butter. Joshua Hickson, age 19, allegedly smeared peanut butter on the head of a fellow student because "he didn't think anything would happen."

The fellow student, who has a severe peanut allergy, was not harmed.

Just like in Freaks and Geeks when the bully puts the peanut in Bill's sandwich!

And did you happen to notice the assailant's age? He's 19 now and turns 20 in January. And he's in high school. That's a recipe for disaster!
