I Can't Decide Which Of These Stories Is More Messed Up.

Both were sent in by alert readers, and for the life of me I can't decide which one wins the prize.

Candidate number one:

LOGAN, OH- A Logan man who admitted he tried to kill his wife by crashing their vehicle into a city of Logan "Gateway" column has died.

The Hocking County Sheriff's office confirmed Ross Nice, 73 died at Ohio State University Medical Center. He was admitted there on Nov. 24 for serious injuries sustained in the incident.

The sheriff's office had a warrant for Nice on two counts of attempted aggravated murder and planned to serve it after his release from the hospital. Nice was accused of first striking his wife, 52 year-old Bonnie Nice, in the head with a wrench and cutting her with a knife in an attempt to kill her.

Later the same morning, with his wife in the passenger seat, he intentionally drove their minivan off the side of Front Street, according to authorities, and into a cinder block column attached to one of Logan's gates welcoming people into the city with the message "Logan, Gateway to Ohio's Scenic Wonderland." He aimed the minivan so the front passenger portion of the vehicle took the force of the impact, authorities said.

His wife survived the attacks and was released from Grant Medical Center on Friday.

Candidate number two:

WARM SPRINGS, Ga. – A Georgia woman is in jail after police say she forced her son to kill his pet hamster with a hammer as punishment for bad grades.

The sheriff of rural Meriwether County told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Thursday that the 12-year-old boy told his teacher about the killing. The teacher reported it to the Division of Family and Child Services, who contacted police.

Sheriff Steve Whitlock said 38-year-old Lynn Middlebrooks Geter of Warm Springs faces one charge each of animal cruelty, child cruelty and battery.

So, my first impulse is to go with the hamster. Fucking with your kid like that is pretty messed up. That boy probably ain't gonna be right in the head for like......ever. And the minivan thing is kinda funny and definitely karmic, which makes it feel less messed up.

On the other hand, hamster momma never tried to injure or kill a person. At least physically. And minivan man tried to actually kill his wife. Twice. Which really isn't funny. Unlike the fact his name was "Nice." That's kinda funny.

And what kind of person, after suffering a wrench and knife attack, says "Sure, I'd love to go for a ride with you?" That's pretty messed up.

I guess......I'm going with minivan man. I think the incompetence factor tips the scale.

But.... hamster Mom wanted her son to get better grades, so I guess she really cared about him, in an incredibly messed up kinda way.

My head is starting to hurt thinking about this.

At least I know now I really wasn't the world's worst husband, and I can be pretty sure I wouldn't be the worlds worst parent.
