Was It Revenge for the Nickname?

posted by on December 28 at 16:30 PM

This troubling item comes to us courtesy of News Channel 7—FIRST in South Carolina to broadcast in high definition.

A Spartanburg mother is accused of stabbing her son several times Christmas morning, but her son is the person facing charges. City police say it appears the mother, 45-year-old Tammy Jones, stabbed her son because he urinated on her while she slept in her bed. 21-year-old Michael Anthony Carson, nicknamed Pooh Bear, is charged with aggravated assault and battery. Police arrested him at his mother’s home on Wednesday.

City police say Jones stabbed her son six times with a butcher knife. He suffered wounds to his shoulder, calf, and chest. Witnesses in the house heard Jones say “why did you pee on me Pooh Bear?” A few moments later, the witness heard the son say “Mama you done stabbed me.”

In St. Peter's Cemetery, in Oxford, Mississippi, a certain Nobel Prize-winning corpse is spinning at 375 mph.

South Carolina gets an early primary why?

They all deserve to die.

Tell you why, Mr. Savage? Tell you why...

@2 - Maybe Tigger cooked up a bad batch.

Posted by Mahtli69 | December 28, 2007 4:56 PM

Bravo, Dan. This one's destined to become a classic.

@8 Cook? Tiggers don't cook. They use.

Blame that shit on Christopher Robbin.

Dang! Now they're probably gonna hafta find a new trailer park.

Nobody's commenting on a 21 year old son sharing a bed with his 45 year old mother? I quit sleeping with my mother when I was under a year old. How could he pee on her (Pee Bear?) anyway, unless he was naked; otherwise he'd just soak his clothes and the sheets.

Perhaps he prefered...

Pee Bear?

Posted by Packratt | December 28, 2007 5:25 PM


Ugh, within under a minute difference with the Weenie the Pee Bear bit.

Posted by Packratt | December 28, 2007 5:28 PM

South Carolina must sure be proud.

Posted by Y.F. | December 28, 2007 5:30 PM

Wait, so you can stab someone in SC but not urinate on them?

Sooo moving there.

Posted by Bweeeeep | December 28, 2007 6:11 PM

Such a difference between here and the Arab world. There, men can piss on women with impunity, and she probably would have been hanged.

Posted by Fifty-Two-Eighty | December 28, 2007 6:54 PM

This is awesome. So awesome.

Posted by Michigan Matt | December 28, 2007 7:21 PM

Yup @11, hyuk, hyuk, look at those trailer trash down South.

Fortunately, around here in the most highly literate Pacific Northwest, we never see crimes emanating from trailer trash like a Christmas Eve killing of 6 over money including shooting 3 and 6 year old witnesses and getting another witness while she's trying to dial 911.

Those dumb southerners. Ha, ha. Probably Pooh Bear was stuffed with Hoppin' John and pig jowls.
Now where's my New Year's eve geoduck stew....?

@19: Your point, Lars? Never mind. At least you had fun writing it.

Posted by Donovan | December 28, 2007 9:30 PM

Awww, did poor wittle Larsy-warsy have to fire up his-ums' genewator so he could post that cute wittle note fwom his twailer?

Posted by goober | December 28, 2007 9:54 PM

Don't pee on me, bro!

Posted by Urinal Cake | December 28, 2007 10:01 PM

“Mama you done stabbed me.”

My life is complete.

It's too bad people in South Carolina don't like immigration. It sounds like they need some new DNA added to their gene pool.

Posted by RainMan | December 28, 2007 10:20 PM

"Mama, you done stabbed me" has the capacity to be the "Stellaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!" of the 21st Century.

Its plaintive wail of simple sentiment, its sickening sense of morbid realization, its sad cry to the progenitor...all combine to manifest a deeply impactful meme.

Mama. Please. Put down that knife...

Posted by Jubilation T. Cornball | December 28, 2007 10:26 PM

I'd also be curious to know why she keeps a butcher knife conveniently close to the bed.

Dude's lucky he didn't get Bobbitted by his own mama.

Posted by Ryan | December 28, 2007 10:30 PM

It all sounds like a bit from a Will Farrell movie.

As a native South Carolinian living in Seattle now. I will say this, Spartanburg is a fucked up part of the state. They are the most bible thumping, gun toating, homophoebic, Republican part of SC that I refuse to step foot in. In 1997, there was a city ordanance passed to allow people to be fired just for being gay. I grew up on the coast in Charleston. To me, Spartanburg is just backwards as fuck and will never change.

Remember Ms. teen SC that couldn't fucking talk shit about geography? Well she's from that area. I rest my case. Oh btw, I'm sure most of the people there are supporting Fuckabee for president. Scary eh?

"mama you done stab me" is the quote of the week. sounds like something that was said on Hee Haw.

Posted by apres_mois | December 29, 2007 3:55 AM

That can't really be real?!?!

Posted by Kristin Bell | December 29, 2007 4:18 AM

I think I've said it before but SC (and yes, I admit being born and raised there) really is the armpit of the south. Pooh Bear for president!!!!

Posted by M | December 29, 2007 8:12 AM


Actually, it sounds like one of those country western songs...

I can hear it now, regretfully...

"Why lord you done hate me?
You let my trailer done get repo'd
dog you done died,
wifesister you done left me,
beer you done gone dry,
mama you done stabbed me...
just 'cause I done gone pee"

Amy I the only one here slightly turned on by this story?

Posted by Jerri Blank | December 31, 2007 1:16 PM

Amy? That there is what you call a Freudian slip. Where you say one thing and you mean your mother. Hahhah Hill-air-eee-usss!!! I totally ruined the set up on that one. Good Times
I shouldn't have started drinking at sun-up. Memories...I wish I had some...

Posted by Jerri Blank | December 31, 2007 1:23 PM

OK, I guess I just read it wrong. I wasn't thinking they were sleeping together, like junior crawling into bed with momma 'cause he had bad dreams and he wet the bed.

I thought he was a kinky mo-fo who went in his mom's room and gave her a golden shower while she slept. I mean, he's a SERIOUSLY KINKY mo-fo, and maybe even a literal mo-fo.
