Blind Love

HONG KONG (Reuters) – A Hong Kong woman who blinded her boyfriend in one eye in a fight six years ago has been jailed for jabbing a chopstick into his other eye, a newspaper reported on Wednesday.

Last November, Po Shiu-fong, 58, accused long-time boyfriend Kwok Wai-ming, 49, of having an affair, the South China Morning Post reported.

During the row, Po stabbed a plastic chopstick into his left eye, which she had already blinded six years ago when she poked it with her finger.

“Po became hysterical when she saw the wound and mopped it with a towel. The pair then went to bed,” the paper said.

“The next morning they had another argument in which she grabbed a chopstick and stabbed Kwok’s right eye,” it said.

Two days later, he sought medical treatment and filed a police report against Po, whom he had dated since 1993.

The paper said he didn’t report the attack six years ago, telling the court his silence was “a love sacrifice.”

Kwok lost 10 to 20 percent vision in his right eye, the paper said.

Po was jailed for six months on Tuesday.

“If I forgive her, God would not forgive me,” the paper quoted Kwok as saying. “No matter what, nothing could compensate for the loss of my eye.”

We all know that it is inevtiable, he will be back with her when she gets out of jail.  We certainly hope he has enough sense to get rid of any knives he might have in the house, but that might be too much to ask of a fellow who thinks with his reproductive organ.

    Your ‘Chinese story’ posts are providing me with more entertainment than books, movies, or t.v. This is not funny, but why am I amused?

    Everything in the item, and everything I predict is probably true, sad, but true, and I guess we gotta get our laughs where we can.
