Ray Rice Would Be Offended



Hey, darlin', you just can't put your hands over your mouth and say, "I'm so sorry" and make everything right.  And although you don't need to be arrested for assault*, you do need to be arrested for being stupid. Then again, the same goes for the guy in the water.

(Note: I had to look up "party foul".  I could kind of guess, but that's not exactly a term I hear every day.)
