Man Stabs and Kills Friend Over Fart Jokes

Mark Higgins

When I first saw this story, I thought it might be one of those made up stories that you see in the Onion, but after doing a little research I found out that it is true.  21-year-old Mark Higgins of New Britain, CT has pleaded not guilty to the stabbing death of a friend and the assault of three other people after they made fun of him and cracked jokes about his flatulence.  His farts must have really been stinky, phew!

The story says that Higgins admits that he was drunk at the time, and he was upset with his friends over their jokes; but how do you go from being upset to killing someone?  This is truly an odd news story.  Unfortunately I think Mr. Higgins will be the “butt” of many more jokes in the future.
