Mom Unplugs Video Game: Slacker Son Hurls Taco At Her

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Authorities say a central Florida 19-year-old threw a taco at his mother for unplugging his video game system.

According to the Volusia County Sheriff`s Office, 54-year-old Dena Moir told her son, Zachary, several times to come downstairs for dinner. When he didn`t respond, she went upstairs and unplugged his Xbox. She told deputies her son pushed her, called her names and ordered her out of his room.

Zachary later went to the kitchen and threw his taco in his mother`s face."

Family disputes are sometimes petty and violent, but they rarely make the news. I never physically assaulted my mother, but I did have some arguments with her that I`m glad never saw the light of day.

But tens of thousands of people will read about Zachary`s taco-hurling incident. Zachary is a 19-year-old slacker who still lives with his mom, and evidently spends most of his time playing video games. Instead of being grateful that his mother makes dinner for a loser like him, he pushes her and throws a taco at her.

The creep is being held without bail in jail, and I`m sure the prisoners are playing Drop the Chalupa with him.
