Baby Shower Brawl

I think anyone who has been forced to sit through a baby shower can understand why this would have happened. I bet they were being forced to play that game where they have to taste baby food and guess the flavor...
Two people have been charged in a fight that broke out between neighbors attending a baby shower Sunday, during which a woman knocked another unconscious with a shovel and a man allegedly threatened a crowd with a shotgun.
A 40-year-old woman is charged with aggravated assault, a third-degree felony, for her role in the brawl near 5600 West and Plumbago Avenue (5637 South). She allegedly approached a neighbor and began a fight, later striking the woman with a shovel, who remained unconscious until police arrived.
The woman's 35-year-old husband was also charged with third-degree felony aggravated assault for his role in the brawl.
The man pulled a shotgun from the bed of a truck, racked it and swung it around at people, according to charging documents.
Police say the man also resisted arrest, for which he was also charged with interference with an arresting officer, a class B misdemeanor.

They live on Lumbago avenue?? That is why the fight broke out - they are all diseased!! Either that or it was a shower for the other side of Luke's lineage.

Holy Cow! Pregnancy can make women cranky, sure! But a shovel? To the head?

Not all baby shower games lend themselves to fighting. Some baby shower games can be a lot of fun and bring people together rather than cause a brawl. I can't remember a single baby shower game I have played that included a shovel. :-)
