Guy Attacks Girlfriend With Steak Sauce For Reading ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’

The sauciness of “Fifty Shades of Grey” — the titillating trilogy that millions of women around the world are reading this summer — turned literal late last month, when a 31-year-old British man, apparently upset that his girlfriend was one of them, assaulted her with a bottle of steak sauce.

According to authorities in Carlisle, U.K., Raymond Hodgson was so bothered that his girlfriend, Emma McCormick, was reading E.L. James’ “pornographic” and “distasteful” book, he drove to her house and squirted her in the face.


According to the Carlisle News & Star, the couple had been arguing and exchanging text messages before the sauce assault. McCormick “answered the door and the argument continued,” prosecutors said. “She went to close the door and [Hodgson] jammed his foot into the door, slapped her once in the face, and then squirted her with this bottle of sauce.”

Hodgson, who denies slapping McCormick, pleaded guilty to assault and was ordered to pay 185 pounds in fines, including 100 pounds to McCormick. The judge also imposed a six-week, 6 p.m. curfew for the convicted saucer.

Guys, would you be this bothered if you discovered your girlfriend reading the “Fifty Shades” trilogy? And to the ladies: Rate your fascination with Christian Grey from a scale of 1 to 10! We’d love to hear from you! Feel free to type your opinions in the comment box below!

Teacher Files Suit for Right to Use ‘N Word’ in Teaching

A white teacher is suing for the right to utter a racial epithet during discussion with his students about the perils of offensive vocabulary, after he was suspended for using ‘verbally abusive language’.

In a lawsuit fled against Chicago’s board of education, Lincoln Brown claims that his use of the word “n***er” during a conversation with students was a constitutionally-protected attempt to teach his class “an important lesson in vocabulary, civility and race relations”.

The incident arose after his sixth-grade pupils – aged between 11 and 12 – were left “unsettled and arguing” over a note that one of them had passed around class, containing lyrics to a rap song that included the racially offensive term. Mr Brown consequently started with them “a discussion about how upsetting such language can be, attempted to give his own denunciation of the use of such language and discussed how even such books as Huckleberry Finn were being criticised for the use of the N-word,” the lawsuit states.


As the discussion was taking place inside his classroom at the Murray Language Academy, where the majority of students are black, the head teacher, who is black, passed by and overheard. Mr Brown was then suspended for five days for “using verbally abusive language” in front of pupils.

Mr Brown, 48, who teaches writing and social studies, said that he was simply exercising his responsibility to educate children against racism. The school board has dismissed his lawsuit as “without merit” and added in a statement: “The principal determined that the way the teacher used the word was improper.”
