Dispute over mashed potatoes turns dangerous

NIAGARA FALLS – A disagreement over mashed potatoes turned dangerous over the weekend when a victim said tempers escalated and a woman came at her with box cutters.

Shaquina S. Hill, 23, of Fourth Street was charged with second-degree menacing and second-degree harassment as a result, city police said.

An 18-year-old woman told police she and Hill argued about mashed potatoes just before 9 p.m. Sunday at a Fourth Street address, and things escalated from there.

The younger woman told police Hill grabbed box cutters and waved them at her, then dropped the knife and started throwing things at her, including a heavy ceramic vase and coffee table. She told police Hill also punched her in the chest.

    I can’t tell you how often this happens to me. We can be having a nice conversation then someone brings up yams.

    Well, I call them yams but people around here call them sweet potatoes and just HAVE to cook them with marshmallows. I say Yuk, yams are already sweet enough and just eat them with butter and salt and pepper. But noooooooooo, they gotsta have marshmallows.

    Well, if they produce box cutters at my next party, I’ll just have to show them my replica sword of Aragorn. Note to self, get sword repaired and sharpened.

    But…but…what was the argument over the mashed potatoes ABOUT? How to mash them? What utensil to use for eating them? Lumps or no lumps? With or without garlic? Must have been important if a projectile coffee table was involved.

    They mis-spelled Shaniqua. That’s as far as I got.

    Hot buttered baked yam. YUM.

    Racist white vs. black pepper in the taters…
    Skin-on vs. skin-off (I prefer on)…
    Momma-mashed vs. add-water-white flakes…
    (If a box-cutter was involved, I suspect the latter.)

    ♫ Mashed potato, ♫YEAH. ♫YEAH. ♫YEAH. ♫YEAH. ♫YEAH. ♫
    Maybe the argument was over the relevance of Darlene Love’s work today…
