The dangers of "American Idol"

This story reminds me of the time I was arguing with a friend over the future of former "AI" runner-up Justin Guarini. He predicted stardom for the former Atlanta police chief's son, so I hit him over the head with a jagged wooden plank.

Otherwise, this fulfills my agenda to reprint as much negative press about "American Idol" as possible.

A Plattsburgh man is facing felony charges for allegedly striking his mother in the head with a sharp object hooked to a bicycle chain after she made a comment about "American Idol."

Cory K. Favreau, 24, of 200A Margaret St. was discussing the television show "American Idol" with his mother, Jan M. Chagnon, on May 24 at about 10:15 p.m., according to Plattsburgh City Court records.

At that time, Chagnon told Favreau that a particular contestant, Katharine McPhee, was going to have a successful career despite losing to another contestant, Taylor Hicks.

Favreau allegedly stood up, made a malicious comment to his mother and struck her in the head with a sharpened, cross-shaped object attached to a bicycle chain.

  1. I wish I had a jagged, wooden plank. Or a sharp, cross-shaped object attached to bicycle chain.

    Kodos: Watch out! The human has a board with a nail in it!

    Kang: Soon, they will have bigger boards with bigger nails. One day, the humans will have a board so big, it will kill them all!
