You have to wonder if the newspaper headline writer knew what he or she was doing here. If you’re not familiar with what “the shocker” is by now, then.. well… just google it the same way you google those slang words the kids are saying these days. The fact that the term is so prevalent in modern culture leads me to believe that the newspaper editor, a person paid to keep up with the times, had to know that they were getting away with putting two in the grass and one in.. well…
A 25-year-old man picked a fight with a group of men outside an Allentown strip club early Friday and then spit on a police officer who had ordered him to leave, police said.
That’s when a night at the Platinum Plus Gentleman’s Club became a stunner for Andrew L. Alvarez of Bethlehem.
Alvarez fought with police after he was told he was under arrest, so police used a stun gun on him to get him under control about 2:12 a.m., Assistant Chief Joseph Hanna said. Alvarez, of Bethlehem, had the opportunity to leave quietly, but got out of his friend’s car and continued being disorderly, he said. SOURCE: The Morning Call
