Games couples play

"Johnson's wife, Iris Ann, 36, told [police] her husband was shot while they played a game in which he ran around the yard while she shot at him with a .22 caliber rifle."

I guess Iris Ann won the game.

Guns and booze - never a good combination. I would also hope that they did reproduce and pass on their "stupid gene".

"did NOT reproduce..."

@KDP: There for a second I thought you were a REALLY BIG fan of WU and wanted to preserve it for future generations.

I wonder if she got to play another little game called life in prison.

Let me see if I can fix that: I hope they did not reproduce and pass on the most dangerous version of their "stupid gene".

Ca marche?

What happened to just going upside the head with a frying pan ?

Did they corroborate Iris Ann's version with that of her husband? Or did he remain silent throughout the investigation?

I've briefly thought of trying this game with my wife, but she always gets the gun first, so forget that. On to the next game.
