Topic: "Reverend LeRoy" (3)
Occasionally, Frodo will see something in a newspaper which immediately makes him think of you, dear reader. All it seemingly takes is one sentence for him to recognize, as if he were Lou Costello, that he has been handed a straight line by Bud Abbott, and that a comic wisecrack immediately follows. As you glance over the details of the news event that follows, see if you, dear reader, can't come up with the pregnant line.
Thomas W. Weeks of Atlanta, 40, Pastor of the Global Destiny Church in Duluth, Georgia, was arrested last week and subsequently indicted for assault and battery on his estranged wife, Juanita Bynum, a national evangelist. It should be noted that Duluth is in Gwinnett County, home of both the "Runaway Bride" and "the Bank Robbery Bimbos." Weeks, it seems, had recently been served with court papers indicating that his church was $50,355 in arrears on back rent. At the same time, Weeks owed more than $48,000 to an advertising firm for failing to maintain payments on a billboard purchased to advertise his ministry. This past June, Weeks was evicted from his multi-million dollar home, and his Bentley motorcar has not been seen in the area for several weeks.
The ATLANTA JOURNAL-CONSTITUTION reports "money problems may have been what sparked the alleged attack." Well, duh; no Pulitizer for journalistic insight this year fellas!
In any event, after meeting with Bynum to discuss the "personal business," Weeks allegedly, in the parking lot in front of a downtown hotel, "beat, choked, and stomped Bynum into the ground" and threatened to kill her.
Although he pleaded not guilty to the charges, this past Sunday, Weeks stood before his congregation and issued a public apology for his conduct. Now dear reader, here comes your big chance. What do you think he said? (Scroll down after a short pause)
Correctamundo. "The Devil Made Me Do It."
Oh Flip, how Frodo misses you and "Killer."
