Smell someone's fragrant feet? Might be best to keep your mouth shut. An 18-year-old Washington woman has been charged with assault after stabbing a fellow partygoer for taunting her about her smelly feet, prosecutors say. Dallas Smith tried and failed to do a backflip, which led to some taunting, the Everett Herald reports. The situation then escalated, prosecutors allege.

As Smith left the party, she allegedly used a steak knife from the kitchen to stab a man who'd been teasing her. A deputy responding to the ensuing 911 call found the man sitting on the porch with the knife still in his back. It had collapsed his lung, but he's expected to be OK. Smith was charged with second-degree assault with a deadly weapon and released on $50,000 bail. For more news about dumb criminals and alleged criminals, click here. (More feet stories.)
