    Attempted murder: With Collard Greens

    Some things you just cannot make up.

    Police: Fayetteville teen poisoned grandma's collards

    Fayetteville, N.C. — A Fayetteville teen was arrested Thursday and accused of spiking her grandmother's Easter dinner with insecticide, according to an arrest warrant.

    Tyt'ana Lisa-Nicole Johnson, 17, of 206 Harrison St., was charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder. She was being held Friday in the Cumberland County jail under a $500,000 bond.

    According to a warrant, Johnson tried to kill Gaylon Moody on Sunday by pouring insecticide and termite killer into a pot of collard greens cooking on the stove, knowing that Moody planned to eat them.

    Moody said it was payback after she confiscated her granddaughter's cellphone for a week.

    "I just couldn’t understand it," Moody said Friday. "Over a cellphone, you want to kill somebody?"

    Wonder what other crimes have been committed with collard greens? Do you think the NSA will be patrolling the garden/farm web sites now? Is Mother Earth News the new crime report? Oh what a tangled web we have weaved

    I used to work in a package shop(liqueur store). There was this one-legged guy who lived nearby that pretty much stayed drunk and obnoxious. I guess his wife had had enough one day because as he was sitting at the kitchen table, she picked up a pot of greens off of the stove and poured the entire contents down his back!

    Well if he had a hairy back and he was a hunter I can see where this could work to his advantage. Haven't you seen those hunting suites with hairy green looking things hanging off it if so you look like a shrub? Do you think if it dried in his back hair he would look like a shrub?

    From what? Nothing was said about it being hot, just off the stove. Stove could have been off for a while, I choose to make no assumption as to the temp since that information was not revealed.

    It was hot. It also turned out to be a great attitude adjuster. He didn't drink as much after that!

    Never tried them, but if they are in the same category as grits there is no need for added poison.

    Oh yee of little taste...

    And if your experience with grits is based on military grits, you haven't tried the good stuff.

    Not military grits, a well known restaurant in Va. Beach many moons ago. Without the copious supply of butter they tasted like wallpaper paste and had the same texture. I never had the urge to try collard greens, but I suspect they would be about the same as dandelion greens up North. Blech.

    Collards (not poisoned) are very good for you - they're more like Turnip greens IMO and IMO taste best mixed with Mustard greens and garlic powder

    YMMV

    My Mom grew up in the poorest part of Texas and regaled us with stories of Sunday dinner with company when she was little. Mom always seemed to get the neck of fried chicken. To this day I'm not sure what collard greens or grits are. Mom NEVER cooked stuff like this for us. Never even mentioned this stuff.

    At 18 my Mom had a 22 inch waist. Hubba hubba. Aunt Beth (Mom's sister) grew up getting more food on her plate. Aunt Beth could have stood in for the Goodyear Blimp or caused an eclipse your choice. When my Mom died at 82 she still had a 22 inch waist. She never had any health problems due to her weight. I never heard the word diet from Mom. Aunt Beth was on one diet or another all her life. Aunt Beth had all kinds of outfits dresses and such. All based on the Mu mu or Moo moo. Made popular in the late 50s or 60s the Moo Moo was what big girls wore.

    I am not denigrating fat girls even tho it sounds like I am. But too much of anything is usually not a good thing. I eat a lot of yellows reds and blues. Yukon Golds red taters and blue/purple spuds. Number 2s when I can get them as they are half price. Onions too. I still like my organic bread and 2% milk and still don't know WTH Gluten is. I stopped eating those cardboard pizza's like Red Baron in the freezer at the store over a year ago. I lost 5 or 6 pounds in the last 2 months. I attribute this to giving up gram crackers. I would eat 1/3 of a box for desert after supper.
