    According to the transcripts of the 1926 homicide trial of Mrs. Samuel A. Pickleberry, the defendant testified that her late husband of thirty years, having sustained a serious brain injury as a result of a freakish accident with a monkey-wrench, managed to whistle his favorite tune, “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” nonstop for 26 days straight while being in a deep coma. And, it was only on the 27th day, when he began to also play the base lines from within the depths of his colon, that she began to pray in earnest out of deep affection for her husband, that he would indeed soon see, “the glory of the coming of the Lord”, that the monkey-wrench returned to finish him off.

    Despite her moving testimony, Mrs. Pickleberry was found guilty of the second degree murder of her husband and promptly given a sentence of twenty-five years, time served.
