Wonton violence?

    From an AP story about the guy who videotaped himself shooting his teenaged daughter's laptop:

    "She was simply venting to her friends and showing the world what a spoiled, self-centered and unappreciative child she was. Nothing even slightly unusual there for a teenager," he said. "For any parent to respond with wonton violence and destruction of property is unnecessary and clearly an overreaction."

    I watched the video. I didn't notice any noodles or soup.

    Scrolling down the page I thought the thread title read Wombat violence.

    Very disappointed to find out I misread that.

    What is the New York Post's headline when Jeremy Lin gets involved in his first fight?

    You engage in wonton violence, and not long after, you have a desire for more.

    It's like getting hit with a wet noodle.
