That started my day with a giggle.

MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota (AP) -- A convicted felon who became a motivational speaker -- and used his life experiences to warn teens about the dangers of drugs and crime -- is accused of going on a bender, threatening to kill his girlfriend and her son, and smashing a former prison buddy in the face with a statue of John Wayne.
Well, maybe he said something bad about the Duke...

I dunno why that kicked over my giggle box. You have to admit that the John Wayne statue adds the perfect Dada touch to the paragraph, though.

No, to be the perfect Dada touch, it would have ended "...and smashing a former prison buddy in the face with a statue of John Wayne, knocking him face first into a bowl of White Rabbit salad."
