PASADENA, Texas — Authorities say a Houston-area woman who was burned up at her former common-law husband fried their pet goldfish and ate some of them.

Mitchell says the two argued earlier about some jewelry the man had given her but took back. She wanted the jewelry returned.

Officers who were dispatched to the woman's home arrived to find four fried goldfish on a plate. The woman said she already ate the other three.

It would have been more dramatic if she hadn’t fried them first.

Will she be charged with cruelty to animals? Does she need extensive counselling to forestall her likely future violence against people?

...these kinds of domestic police calls are often fun to read....remember when James Brown threw his wife’s mink coat out in the front yard and shot it 6 times which a .38?....or the guy who chain sawed his house in half for an equal division of joint proprty?....there’s probably a web site somewhere devoted to this kind of stuff....or there should be anyway.

The police found trace elements of buttermilk and flour at the scene, leading them to charge her with battery.

Carp/Cat, not much difference in cleanliness. But at least the carp don’t pee behind the couch.

I don’t think its a crime at all. A goldfish is just a small carp. BUT, she has shown an impulse of “crazy”. He should be careful not to enrage her, and carefully sneak away,,,,forever.

I remember when he was married to his first wife about 10 years ago. Apparently she dumped him and he was devastated about that. He has not been right since the Yanks sent him on his way. It must have been the steroids. I was also thinking the “common law” wife was probably a low life just like him.

Its unhealthy. She could be trouble for frying instead of grilling or broiling.

Hmm...yeah, I guess you got a point. So what kind of wine goes with scorpion? A brisk little chablis or something a little more likely to clear the palate, like sulfuric acid?

The Jews love them!

When I was a little kid I used to catch them in Echo Park lake in Los Anfeles and sell them to the jews.

A scorpion eater would probably skip the wine and go for Scorpion Vodka instead. :-)

"Carp is Crap."

Not if properly prepared. It is a bony fish, and some people just don't like that, but if harvested from clean water and fixed properly it's not bad. When I was a kid, we'd pull carp out of the Clarion River in NW Pennsylvania and soak the filets in diluted beer overnight. Fried up, they taste a lot like catfish.

While stationed in Germany, I was delighted to find that in parts of Germany Karpfen Blau (Blue Carp) was considered a delicacy.

“The police found trace elements of buttermilk and flour at the scene, leading them to charge her with battery.”

Still, in the larger scheme of things, the scale of this crime is small.

Her lawyer referred to the investigation as a fishing expedition.
