Was that a fight?

"The police were called to Whangarei Ward at the Aged Care Centre in Kaikohe because a fight had broken out," Senior Sergeant Maurice Loveridge told a New Zealand court, "and when they arrived, they could see that the two elderly accused men had just been involved in an almighty punch up."

Both were covered in blood, their clothes were torn, one had a broken nose and half his hair ripped out, and the other one had a broken arm and a hypodermic needle stuck into his penis. Furniture and equipment had been smashed flat, beds had been overturned, and the other patients on the ward were all terrified.

"However, the fight took place in a ward full of elderly Alzheimer's patients, and it has gradually become clear that nobody can remember what happened, or who was responsible. One patient keeps repeating the phrase 'we ought to have more manure,' but frankly that gives us no clue.

The two accused men do not recognise each other, nor do the other patients, and the ones who initially reported the incident to us had forgotten that there even was a fight by the time we tried to question them. Therefore, because nobody can now recall the incident, the Police Prosecution Department has reluctantly decided to withdraw the case against both men."

WTF? That sure would save for some of our nation's healthcare cost... Put all the patients in a mard together with no one to minister or supervise!

Clearly they just want more Manure.

I still like that they were involved in "an almighty punch up" - that sounds soooo cute!
