"Four Wisconsin women are accused in a plot that left a married man tied up after they allegedly found out he was romantically involved with three of them."
Hey, that's interesting and all, and would be kind of strange for another state. But this is Wisconsin, home of dead deer fuckers and the like. Where's that Wisconsin edge? You actually have to read down a few paragraphs to get into what makes it special:
"Authorities say [48-year-old Therese A.] Ziemann punched the man in the face and glued his penis to his stomach."
C'mon AP! Glued Penis screams Wisconsin. You don't leave that for the fourth paragraph. You know better than that.
