Boredom made him do it. At least that’s apparently what started the argument that resulted in a Nebraska man being jailed for five days for allegedly attacking his wife with a sandwich.

According to the arrest affidavit, Larry Spurling, 50, of Melbeta, Neb., was angry at his wife for “making him live in the county” and “being bored since there is no place for him to walk,” according to the local ABC affiliate KETV.

The woman grew tired of the argument and retired to her bedroom with a sandwich. According to KETV, Spurling — who was reportedly intoxicated on a malt liquor product called Natty Daddy — followed her into the bedroom, pulled her hair, pushed her down on the bed and crammed the sandwich in her face. She called 911 to report the assault.

The Scottsbluff Star-Herald didn’t detail the ingredients of the sandwich, but a sheriff’s deputy found lunch meat and crumbs scattered around the crime scene — although the woman had washed the rest of the evidence off of her face. Spurling was found by deputies lying face down on grass about 10 feet from the home. He pleaded no contest to a charge of disturbing the peace, a misdemeanor, and was sentenced to five days in jail for the crime.

When sandwiches are outlawed, then only criminals will have sandwiches.

Guys, stay single, enjoy your life; American society and politicians have stacked the deck against you.  If she poisons you over  a period of 5 years, you die, what does she receive?  A free pass, movie and book deals, a wink and a nod by the feminists, done.  Throw a snack across the room, her little feelings are hurt, she call the cops; what do you receive?  Jail time, humiliation, and grief.  Free your mind, live to be happy, do what women do; put yourself first.  They hate that.
