Nice to see this old chestnut making the rounds again, just in time for Christmas:

WEST MILTON, Ohio — A 63-year-old man bludgeoned his wife to death yesterday morning with a pair of banjos, deputies said.

“She was beaten with a banjo in the head. When it was destroyed, a second banjo was used,” Mr. Price said. “Pretty gruesome.”

Ralph Wolfe, whose house is in front of the Bensons’, said Mr. Benson had told him he played the banjo in a bluegrass band.  — Baltimore Sun

Aah, Deliverance.

Nice that, somebody finally did something useful with a banjo.  But now get ready for the movement to have them registered, countered by a campaign to make sure there are banjos in every household.  After all, the only defense against a bad guy with a banjo…..

The real takeaway, though, is the innovative use of banjos in head-banging music.  Can’t wait for Ed Benson’s next album.
