French kid stabs his sister in the name of the DS

8:20 AM on 03.03.2009

From stabbing people over handheld videogame consoles to draping themselves in Christmas lights and trying to somehow make it sexual innuendo, the French are clearly a ... unique bunch. The Le Post recently reported a five year old boy who stabbed his ten year old sister with a kitchen knife in their Uckange home, apparently because she refused to give him her DS.

Further investigation revealed that the boy's inspiration to use the knife in such a way way have come from a Power Rangers episode that included knife throwing, and also that the family has a history of domestic violence. So the DS isn't to blame, but Power Rangers. And violent fathers. Who argues over the DS, anyway? It's such a happy little thing.
