Here’s a rather bizarre story out of Boston (MA), it gives a whole new meaning to brotherly love.

Two Roxbury brothers stretched irony to the breaking point Tuesday night when one stabbed himself repeatedly to show he wasn’t afraid of getting hurt, while the other barricaded himself in his room with lumber and nails so cops wouldn’t put him in jail, police said.

It all started when the dog who belongs to one of the brothers ate the other brother’s watermelon, police report. That touched off a fight, and soon the two were shouting loudly back and forth until one of the brothers discovered the ultimate argument ender – self-inflicted stab wounds, police said.

So much for fruit being good for you.
