Boiling Mad

Woman, 83, thwarts would-be robber with pot of boiling water

An 83-year-old Houston woman has foiled a would-be robber by tossing a pot of boiling water on him.

McClendon, who’s lived in her home more than 50 years, tells Houston television station KTRK she wasn’t going to surrender. She fought off the intruder by grabbing a stick and tried to hit him.

And when that failed to dissuade the goblin, she grabbed a pot of boiling water off the stove and dumped it on him.

[Pauses for cheering to subside]

A gun is not a magic talisman. It is simply the most efficient tool with which one can defend one’s self from outside aggression.

h/t Jay G.

AMEN, Jay!  Preparedness is largely mindset.  Prepare to be a victim, become one.

Now watch, some I-love-government-control fool will propose regulating quantities of water above a certain temperature in households.  Or at the very least suggest persons of a certain age not boil water because they are old, feeble and undoubtedly a danger to themselves.

And others.

  1. Thankfully she was old enough to know HOW to boil water… 🙂 And I’m betting there was a percolator close by!
