We must ban Assault Skillets.

An 81-year-old Jacksonville man who was cooking dinner when a robber burst into his home defended himself with a frying pan full of potatoes…Smith confronted the man with a pan full of potatoes, his supper for the night.

“I came around just like that, like baseball players do,” Smith said. “(I) hit him upside the face, and the potatoes went all over.”

Smith is disabled from a stroke and has a 65-year-old caregiver, but he said he is still strong enough to fight back. In fact, after he hit the robber with the pan, he wasn’t done yet.

“He sank to his knees. I hit him, No. 2 frying skillet, and it was red hot,” Smith said. “I reached back six feet, and I got this pitchfork, then I went to work on him.”

You know that thing on your noggin must hurt some. Well done Sir, well done!
