    And they say it's the teenagers that are bad...

    Thought this might bring a few chuckles out of some folks here. Some people just never grow up.

    Seniors Brawl After Salad Bar Dispute</FONT>



    WINTER HAVEN, Fla. (AP) - A dispute at the salad bar turned into a food fracas at an upscale retirement home, with a man taking a bite out of another's arm and other residents suffering minor injuries.

    Police said resident Lee Thoss, 62, of the Spring Haven Retirement Community was picking through the lettuce, which disgusted 86-year-old William Hocker, who was standing in line behind him.





    Hocker told Thoss no one wanted to eat food he had been playing with. Thoss yelled and cursed at him, Hocker told police, and Hocker called him a nasty name. Then, witnesses said, Thoss then began punching Hocker in the face.

    In the buffet melee that followed, Allen Croft, 79, tried to grab Thoss, who bit him on the arm, reports said.

    Thoss' mother, Arlene, in her 80s and also a Spring Haven resident, jumped in to break up the fight and ended up with a cut arm. Harry Griffin, 92, was standing at the salad bar and cut his head when he was knocked to the ground.


    ``All the old folks were either getting up to help or trying to get out of there,'' police spokesman J.J. Stanton said of the scene last Sunday in the well-appointed dining room, which features an ice cream bar and a pastry chef.


    Arlene Thoss, Croft and Griffin were treated at a local hospital and released.


    Stanton said all involved declined to press charges, but home administrators have asked Lee Thoss to move out.

    It's a good thing none of those bad boys (and girls) were packing.

    What the hell? A 62 year old punching an 86 year old in the face? I would kick some lesser-geezer *** if I saw that happening. Elderly abuse pisses me off... Unless its counter abuse as in the case of my anti-lesser-geezer agenda.

    Old people fighting could be a big pay per view hit.

    :lol:

    I have a pretty funny story on the topic. A friend of mine was working at one of those homes a couple of years ago when two oldtimers got in a fight over an old lady who live at the home. One of the men, an old colonel or something like that, ran to his room and got two swords! He threw the other guy a sword and told him to defend himself.
    Fortunately, the colonel wasn´t out to kill the other guy... just cut him up a bit and make him hurt.

    :lol:

    I'm sure the scene littered with broken pacemakers and dentures was a horrible sight to behold. I wonder how many hip bones actually remained intact after that little free-for-all.
