To Err is Human, But This is Asinine

Robert Norton Kennedy, 51, of Little River, S.C., lives by a motto: “WITH GOD, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. GOD LOVES YOU. Please forgive me if I say or do anything stupid. Thank You!” Kennedy came to the attention of the Horry County Police when neighbors called them, saying Kennedy had been playing loud music all day, and “verbally assaulting” them. When officers arrived, Kennedy allegedly spat in a neighbor’s face, which led to his arrest for assault and battery. And how do we know what Kennedy’s motto might be? Well, it’s tattooed across his forehead, and clearly visible in his resulting mug shot. (RC/WBTW Florence) ...Let’s just say he isn’t exactly prescient for thinking he might “say or do anything stupid.”
Author’s Note: Kennedy’s mug shot is on my blog. See
