Local News Report Demonstrates Why You Don’t Fight Guys With Samurai Swords

So, you’re in bed when headlights from a car outside keep flooding your window and waking you up. You decide to show the driver what for? You grab a big club or a lead pipe and head out there. Clearly you’re going to look pretty intimidating, right? Absolutely!…UNLESS the guy in the car happens to have a samurai sword and is totally ready to throw down.

That’s what happened in Terre Haute, Indiana this past Friday. According to Terre Haute’s WTHI, a fight ensued and we all learned that, like the rock and the scissors, the samurai sword always beats the wooden club:

“The man from the house eventually picked up a wooden club and then investigators say that’s when the man from the car pulled out a samurai sword.

According to detectives, in the middle of the fight, the man with the sword sliced off three fingers from the man with the club.

Police say that the man was sent to an Indianapolis hospital to reattach his fingers.

Investigators talked to the man with the sword at the scene.

Police are still hoping to talk to more witnesses and get a clearer picture of exactly what happened.

In the mean time, the man with the sword is not facing any charges at this time.”

There appears to be some discrepancy as to which weapon the man in the house used. The original video report identified it as a “lead pipe” while the updated article calls it a “wooden club.” Really, though, once a samurai sword gets involved, does it really matter?
