Man Kills Uncle Over Semantics: ‘Pork Chops’ or ‘Pork Steaks’

 

We can all get into some heated discussions at times but this is a little too serious. John Cunningham thought they were cooking ‘pork steaks’. His uncle Lessie Lowe thought they were cooking ‘pork chops’.  I would like to think that most of us would let this argument go and move on. But this discrepancy angered Cunningham so much that he got his shotgun out and killed his Uncle.

Now it turns out the Cunningham was right, they were about to cook ‘pork steaks’,  However his victory was tempered by the fact he was being charged with murder and he killed the person he was arguing with.  No bragging writes here.
