Cry of ecstasy or yell of pain?

November 1949: Mrs. Valerie Humphries accused artist Rodney Roth of biting her bare midriff during a Halloween party — so hard that she yelled out in pain. Roth didn't dispute the bite but insisted that the sound she made was actually a "cry of ecstasy." The judge ruled in favor of Mrs. Humphries.

Presumably, if he had left a hickey, he would have gotten 90 days.

I'll take "Artists Kruschev probably would have liked" for 40, Alex.
