Cruel And Unusual


No, that is not how I describe my last marriage, but I could.

Rather, when most people think of the guillotine, they think of the bloody French Revolution of the late 18th century, but France continued use of the guillotine in capital punishment cases until it was retired in 1977.

It is also entirely possible, even probable, that consciousness is maintained for a brief period after said head is removed from said neck. Cruel and unusual or humane?

  2. You had it right the first time -- modern marriage is cruel and unusual for most men.
