It's a violent day in the neighborhood

Okay, this kind of thing looks cool in the movies, but...
A Mexican couple were recovering separately after a marital spat got out of control and saw them firing guns, throwing knives and hurling homemade bombs, Mexican daily Milenio said on Monday.

In scenes taken straight out of hit romantic comedy "Mr. and Mrs. Smith," starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Juan Espinosa and Irma Contreras fought until their house blew up in a homemade gasoline bomb explosion, Milenio said.
Oh, who am I kidding? That sounds friggin' awesome! I mean, who wouldn't want to see their neighbors fight a gun battle and blow up their house? Assuming, of course, that nobody else got shot or had their house catch on fire or anything. Yeah.

Anyway, let's see if the couple can put the shattered pieces of their lives back together (literally) and reconcile.
Espinosa told reporters he was glad his wife had suffered burns, while Contreras said she was only sorry she had not "hacked off his manhood" during the fight.
Um, I guess that would be a no. Probably not.
