Knots, Heads

A crime of violence in my hometown, Gainesville, Florida:

A Gainesville man was arrested after a woman he was intimately involved with told police he battered her.

Deputies gave this account: At about 11:45 p.m. Sunday, the 44-year-old victim sent a text message to her daughter saying Thomas “put knots on my head” and had called her names.

We used to call that slapping a knot upside [someone's] head, or going upside [someone's] head. Or, if you did it by stealth from behind, Jap-slapping [someone].

Ah, the Florida of my youth...

"Jap-slapping"? Ain't heard that one in a LONG time.
