S.W.M.B.O. sent this to me, we both agree there's something wonderfully Elemental about it. It reminds me of a Punch and Judy Show, Commedia del Arte kinda primitive extended-family puppet violence. The Dad should plead not guilty and demand a jury trial of a juror of his peers, they never seat anybody younger than 55 on a criminal jury. After he's acquitted, the Dad and the jury will do a Group Hug Photo Op thing at Olive Garden. The jury's picking up the tab.

Dad chases nude boy from daughter's room with pipe
DELTONA, Fla. -- An angry Deltona father whacked his teenage daughter's boyfriend with a metal pipe after finding the boy naked in his daughter's room. Authorities say the father, 45, didn't even know his daughter had a boyfriend or that the youngster had been sneaking into the home for more than a year.
When he heard noises coming from his daughter's bedroom Thursday morning and saw a stranger standing naked on the girl's bed, he swung a metal pipe. He then chased the teen out the front door and called police.
The boy was taken to the hospital where doctors closed a head wound with staples.
The father was charged with aggravated battery on a child and bonded out on $10,000.
