Photobucket - Video and Image HostingALL WAS NOT QUIET IN THE BORDEN HOUSE.

The Bordens were a respectable, god-fearing family in Fall River, Massachusetts. Dr. Andrew Borden was what some might call overly frugal. While possessing quite a bit of wealth, Dr. Borden frowned on spending it. New dresses were not bought; old dresses were mended. Mutton stew was to be eaten even if it was several days old. Daughter Lizzie was a great fan of puddin'. And the decree came down that frivolous desserts (especially puddin') were not to be expected in the Borden household.

Daughter Lizzie soon made her displeasure known.

Oddly enough this post comes just a few days after the anniversary of the infamous murders. Coincidence or Bullshit?

I knew it was the lack of pudding that caused this tragedy!
