Careful With That Axe, Stinky*

In a "Tent City" for homeless people down in my hometown of Gainesville, Florida, a man charged at a woman with an axe after she made a joke about his body odor.

According to a Gainesville Police Department arrest report, Ricky B. Griffis, 44, and the victim got into an argument after the woman made a joke about his body odor.

The woman was drying herself off when Griffis allegedly charged toward her with an ax.

Another resident at Tent City pulled out a machete to scare him off, the report stated. Both the victim and witness said Griffis had been in an “enraged mental state” for the past three days.

Isn't that line from a Pink Floyd song?
