MEAT IS (ATTEMPTED) MURDER

The French sure can teach us a lot about peace:

A butcher went on the rampage in the southwestern French village of Salleboeuf early today, stabbing six people including his five-year-old grandson, police said.

Two adults were seriously wounded and two children lightly in the attack which took place in the main street of the town, which lies just to the west of Bordeaux.

"He was yelling 'It's the end of the world' and flailing around with his knife," said a local gardener who helped wrestle the knife from Perroy.

Hes gone ... meatal.

Knives don't kill people.

People kill people.

The cleaver control lobby's going to try to use this as an excuse to take sharp objects out of the hands of law abiding people all around the world.
