He Said She Said: The Sweet, Sweet Sounds of Revenge, Part 2

For someone who wears motorcycle boots and carries a knife, the bald(ing) He Said rightfully looks like he should be one of the most vindictive cats in the world. But in reality, the only revenge we have ever taken has been of the emotional variety, and that's probably much worse than any windows we have smashed, swimming pools we have overflowed, cars we have keyed or brake lines we have cut. Alright, we don't even know where the brake line of a car is, so that was a fib. He Said has always contended that the worst strain of revenge is mental warfare.

Amongst men it is virulent and almost always ends in bloodshed. Between men and women, it is most assuredly deadly. There is nothing worse than knowing that someone of the opposite sex is plotting to exact revenge against you. Even if you deserve it, there is still a twinge of anger that someone would dare attempt to even the score. Some less classy people get off on the thrill of angering people enough to elicit the revenge urge. Those people are called He Said's ex-fiancé.
