    This story is funn yes. But you have to wonder what was so bad that Dad felt the need to hit him with a frying pan so hard he gets airlfited out? Maybe the son should have ducked.

    Interesting they already had a mugshot of the stepson. I hope the son is ok but like the rest it's kinda funny. I wish more people would grab a fry pan instead of a gun. It's the 3 Stooges or Comedy Capers all over again. Foxworthy would have a ball with this!!!

    dojofraleigh...you are right. The cartoons I watched as a kid always had someone getting whacked with a frying pan and it would dent the pan. I'm sure if Daffy Duck would have died in the cartoon from being his by his drunk Dad, it would have been more entertaining for the kids.

    The first time my wife brought out the frying pan, I said "Oh Boy, scrambled eggs" Her reply: "Scrambled yes, eggs no" Then it hit me. On the back of the head to be exact.
