It would have been funny if the woman’s name had been Flo. Carolyn Brown, a 44-year-old woman in Boutte, Louisiana is facing second-degree battery charges after she allegedly poured a boiling hot pot of grits on her boyfriend while he was sleeping after the two had been arguing. In case you young whippersnappers don’t get the reference, “Kiss my grits” was the catchphrase of a waitress named Flo on the late 70s/early 80s sitcom Alice.
