From Barron’s Law Dictionary, 5th edition:

Crime of Passion: … For instance, a man’s attack on another person with an axe after that person insulted the attacker’s wife might be considered a crime committed in the heat of passion.

  1. From BaronLaws definitions:
    An axe might be a tad much, a simple a$$ kicking will do. 😉

  2. Whereas, were it over a poker game, it would be in cold blood.
    At least we know Hans’ ancestors were level-headed.
    (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, ask .)

  3. Or in self-defense, if a sufficient amount of time had elapsed between the poker game and the attack. (And if you don’t know what I’m talking about, ask .)
