A couple in York, Pennsylvania faces charges after they, you know, stabbed each other during a drunken disagreement about who should win American Idol. It's unclear whether 48-year-old Karen Elaine Harrelson was cheering for Candice Glover or Kree Harrison, but whoever it was, 57-year-old Gregory Stambaugh did NOT agree. Authorities say that one of them went into the kitchen, grabbed a knife, and stabbed the other.
Then, the tables were turned.
The victim suddenly grabbed the knife out of the attacker's hand and started stabbing the attacker!
Both Karen and Gregory assure that it was the other person who started the stabbing fight, but both are being held in prison on assault charges.
Personally, I get where these two cats are coming from. There's very little else I'm passionate about in life other than prime-time singing competitions, and I, too, have experienced a moment or 10 where I wished a dissenter in my living room a fiery death for cheering for Lazaro Arbos (I mean, COME ON), but my cooler head has always prevailed.
But, if I were to, you know, follow my dream of ending an Idol adversary, I don't think I'd go full stabby on them. I'd make it look like an accident. Maybe they'd trip and fall over the phone they used to vote for such horrible people. Or maybe they'd get so pissed off at the impromptu and unexplained Internet "outage" that they'd inflict bodily harm. Or maybe they'd have an allergic reaction to a piece of shrimp that somehow made its way into the bowl of potato chips. Hey! How'd that get in there?!
But a stabbing? I don't know. I think I could only take a knife to someone if it's The Voice we disagree on.
Can you believe this couple?
