Flushing a Marriage Down the Toilet

April 20, 2015

A Japanese woman has been charged with attempted murder for slashing her husband’s face because he left the bathroom “stinky.”   I’m not a marriage counselor, but I think this situation might have been avoided if the couple took some preventive actions such as:

1. Investing in some Glade air freshener or scented candles.

2. Purchasing gas masks which sound an alarm when the odor level reaches a dangerous level.


Not getting married when one partner is a homicidal maniac.

    If the whole thing started with “hey, come in here and see this before I flush”, then it’s justifiable homicide.

    Daily, a married coworker used the only bathroom for women on our floor early in the morning. She left it so rancid that we had to go to other floors. I used to joke, “What does she do on weekends and holidays?” Now I see that there may be a reason. Incidentally, she was Japanese!

    And this is exactly why you should be a marriage counselor Don Don’s.

    Poor man. Is he going to sue ‘er?
    Maybe wedding vows should be revised: “For richer for poorer, in sweetness and in stinky.”
    I wonder what the bathrooms smell like in prison.

      Well, I think it’s best if you never find out Bill! Just my own opinion though.

    Wow, first stinky, then bloody. Surely, there’s a better way. Donna, I’ll take Door No. 3

    I mean why couldn’t she have given him a warning punch in the nose?

      I would expect nothing less than this logical answer from you Dr. De Lancey!
