Iowa man arrested after fight with brother over peanut butter and jelly sandwiches
DES MOINES, Iowa – Police say an Iowa man was arrested after he pulled a knife on his brother during a fight over peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

The Des Moines Register reports (http://dmreg.co/1e5JdAD ) that Jerome Davis was arrested on Friday after the confrontation with his brother in their Des Moines home. Both men are in their 50s.
Folks, if you are in your damn 50s and you're pulling a knife on someone because you think they've had too many PBJs, you need to stop and take a very serious look at your life and priorities. Now, I get it. This may very well have been the very last straw in a long-running fight between the two brothers.

But damn, you pulled a weapon on your own flesh and blood? Over $5 worth of peanut butter, jelly, and bread? Whatever the issues may have been, are they worth assault charges? A potential felony on your record? It just goes to show that "redneck" is a state of mind, not a state in the union.

Because if you've ever pulled a knife on kin over a sandwich, you might just be a redneck.

That is all.

But what if it was the last P&J sandwich in the house? And your brother comes over and takes a bite out of it and laughs at you!

I think I did that to my brother one time and as I recall, it was 45 or so years ago, he did in fact punch me.

No weapons were used in the following melee.
