Jealous Boyfriend Allegedly Beats Woman After Seeing Photo of Mitt Romney on Her Facebook

No matter how many pennies we toss into the fountain, there's not a chance in hell we'd be lucky enough to wake up and have no clue who Mitt Romney is.

However, this charming Tennessee man to your right only recently learned about Romney while he was in jail. He also learned that ignorance is not bliss.

Lowell Turpin was arrested last week after he glanced at his girlfriend's Facebook page and saw a picture of another man -- a clean-cut, white dude who he knew for sure wasn't him. Instead of calmly asking her about the mysterious man, the 40-year-old allegedly grabbed her laptop, smashed it against a wall, and hit her in the face, according to news reports.

Turns out that Romeo in the photo was Mitt Romney -- you know, the guy who is running for president.

In any event, Turpin was booked into Anderson County Jail and charged with domestic assault.

He also now knows who Mitt Romney is. Let's just hope he's not inspired to register to vote.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
