I'll bet there was clinching involved

You know you've got a drinking problem when you make your wife give you enemas using sherry. You should know your husband has a drinking problem when he asks you to give him the same. But apparently, Tammy Jean Warner didn't learn these pertinent facts at finishing school, since she enema'd her husband to death by helping him with the bum chugging:
Michael Warner, a 58-year-old machine shop owner, had a long history of alcoholism, but couldn't ingest alcohol by mouth because of painful medical problems with his throat, said Lake Jackson police detective Robert Turner. The enema was a way he could become intoxicated without drinking alcohol, Turner said.

"I heard of this kind of thing in mortuary school in 1970, but this is the first time I've ever heard of someone actually doing it," Turner said.

Turner said police think Warner gave her husband at least two large bottles of sherry, which is stronger than wine, in the enema.

"We're not talking about little bottles here," Turner said, "These were at least 1.5 liter bottles."

The sad thing is that this happening in Houston doesn't surprise me. Come to think of it, it wouldn't surprise me if it'd happened in Austin, either. But in that case, fraternities would have to be involved. Something this stupid just begs for copycats.
