Not the Sharpest Axe in the Shed

The Age reports:

Religious axe killer jailed

 

A man was jailed for 18 years after he went berserk and killed a man when he and his wife told him they were atheists.

—-

Appoo, a drifter, who was heading to Goondiwindi in far south west Queensland, was hitchhiking near Woodford, north west of Brisbane, when Mrs McDonald picked him up and took him home for lunch.

 

He spent two days drinking and socialising with the McDonalds before Mrs McDonald told him she was an atheist.

 

Appoo, a proud Christian whose bible was one of his most precious possessions, went berserk and began punching her, and turned on Mr McDonald when he tried to intervene.

 

Appoo then went outside and grabbed an axe and began attacking the couple.

 

He stomped on, punched and kicked Mr McDonald in the head and stomach before bludgeoning him with the axe in the head and leg.

I think the title of this report is misleading. Who is “religious” in this scenario? A man who professes to be a proud Christian, but goes ahead and murders, or the atheists who perform good deeds like picking up drifters and feeding them?

 

Mr Appoo is not religious..he is crazy. And it is all the fault of a didgeridoo.

Appoo is prone to outbursts of intense irrational anger due to an organic personality disorder caused when he was hit over the head with a didgeridoo in 1995.

 

He has to be continually medicated, and avoid alcohol and cannabis.

Not to mention didgeridoos.

 

Update: I should have clarified this earlier. Mr Appoo is not to be confused with this man:
