    "LEXINGTON - A man who bit into a sandwich containing a dead bat will not have to undergo treatment for rabies, while the teenager who pulled the prank could face felony charges under a new state law.


    Timothy Gooch, 21, was given what he thought was a cheeseburger Tuesday evening, but got quite a surprise when he took a bite and heard a crunch. The wing of a dead bat was sticking out of the sandwich where he had tried to take a bite."

    I hope people start getting heavy punishments for these dangerous pranks.

    Many engage in practical jokes and then attack the receivers sense of humor when they don't find it funny. My older brother is one of these. I taught my children that taking advantage of someone's fears is not funny. A fake snake thrown on one who is very afraid of snakes is cruelty, not humor. Humor is when all are laughing, not when one is crying and all others are laughing, not when one has a broken coccyx because you pulled a chair out. And yes, not enough are taught to think about consequences and responsibilities before acting.

    Frodo Lives to hit it!

    I don't think it is ONLY that, although that is a big part. We need harsher punishments for some things and the people who will make them stick. Strange as it may sound, I would rather see people like you, HaYwIrE, up on the judges benches then most of the pussy foot judges we have now. Slap on the wrist, my ass, it's time for the boot to the backside. ;)

    Frodo, you might want to read all of his posts before you wish for him to pass sentence. Hobbits are definitely not Texans and would probably be sentenced to the rack to make them of acceptable height.
