Woman Accused Of Choking Blanket Hog

January 24, 2013 at 7:22 pm by  

Tina Berryhill RuckerMyrtle Beach, SC — Police in South Carolina say they have arrested a woman for choking an alleged blanket hog.

While I don’t see a problem with that, really, the law doesn’t allow for those sort of shenanigans and the suspect, 42-year-old Tina Berryhill Rucker, was arrested.

According to the victim, Rucker got all choky and shit after he attempted to employ the “tuck and roll” maneuver so popular with blanket hogs.

He said Rucker “jumped on top of him and began to choke him.”

Signs of a struggle were apparently evident on the man’s neck – police say it appeared as if he had been choked. He was also sporting a few bloody scratches from Rucker’s fingernails.

Rucker, who police say was intoxicated and uncooperative at the time of her arrest, presumably due to the fact that she was friggin’ cold and tired, was booked into jail and charged with criminal domestic violence.

Personally, I think she went rather easy on him, considering… steal my covers and not only will I choke you into unconsciousness, I will cut you. Not with a knife, though, because that’s just too messy. I’m talking paper cuts, hundreds of ’em.

  • I will paper cut your face off if you try and take my fleece blanket. Then I’ll paper cut your tongue. So..yeah hands off!

  • newstarshipsmell

    Would you be able to sleep underneath a blanket made of bacon?

  • Suzy Sears

    Here’s a simple fix that I’ve had to employ with my hubby you each get separate blankets lol ! I have a suspicion that. There was way more to this story. Like he left the toilet seat up AGAIN ! Grrrrr

    Fleece blankets are okay, until some asshole puts it in the dryer and then its all scratchy and worthless. I will take a dead grandmothers quilt any day. Not literally, kill them for it, but you know afterwards when their kids donate all their stuff to Goodwill.

  • midniteshadows

    I confess. I’m a blanket hog. Doesn’t matter if we have separate blankets; I take it anyways. I roll myself up like a burrito in the blankets. Hey, I have my priorities when it comes to sleeping.

  • Heather_Habilatory

    Separateblankets, people!! Seriously.

    The only reason my husband is alive. We both employ the burrito-yourself-in method with our blankets, and a double-burrito is just not possible.

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    I’m an unrepentant blanket hog. The only reason I’m still alive is because she doesn’t like a top blanket. When she gets chilled, she just suction-cups herself to my back. LOL!

  • I need this.

  • 18th40

    Thanks Jaded, I read the headline and thought, well I never heard it called that before but sure I guess it works.

  • Ha! Must be a geographical thing… you aren’t the first to have questioned my wording. A few people thought I was talking about pigs, but others knew exactly what I was getting at. 😉

  • Sam

    My husband keeps trying to hog the duvet, but I have acquired the ninja-like stealth – even fast asleep – of sidling further and further over onto his side of the bed until i push him out. Even the kids know this now, and will insist on sleeping in between us if they end up in our bed, so they don’t get either completely uncovered on my side, or a surprise meeting with the floor on my hubby’s side.

  • Sam

    Tina, Tina, Tina. The pillow is so much more effective at eliminating loved ones dickheads.

  • Andyman

    HAHA! Thanks for the laugh. I didn’t know WTF Jaded was even talking about until I googled “Blanket Hog” and came up with the definition for “bed hog.” I thought this was some sick and twisted thing I was unfamiliar with until I realized it was just tug of war with the blanket on the bed. God I must need more coffee.

  • CT

    OK, for some reason, I must admit to my stupidity today – I Googled blanket hog thinking it was a new breed of hog not realizing it was just a domestic dumb ass.

  • newstarshipsmell

    I guess I should warn you, I’m totally a blanket hog.

  • CT

    Stalking takes a lot out of a gal. I sleep like a rock, covers or not.

  • CT

    At least I was not the only one.

  • alphatroll

    I completely read that wrong the first time. Couldn’t figure out how the law got involved in someone’s recreational chokin’ of the ol’ “blanket hog”…

  • brandi

    “paper cuts, hundreds of them”
    salt anybody?

  • Buffettgirl

    Good thing this one posted after I left work yesterday or I might have been inspired and Boyfriend might be seriously hurtin” this morning…

    And really, she’s only 42? Why does she look closer to 62 to me?

  • JGo555

    *Cries* I married a blanket hog!

  • Abroad

    Heartfelt commiserations. Should we expect an “It happened to me”-style testimonial to hit the newsstands shortly?

  • FrikkenFrak

    You’re not alone my sister. At first I thought it was some kind of animal, too….like a close relative to a hedge hog or something.

  • FrikkenFrak

    Two words: EXTRA blanket.

  • BehemothII

    Damn Jaded your turning me on with that picture of the blond with stringy hair, i <3 me some stringy headed blond!

  • LeaveMeBe

    LOL! I saw this on FB and wondered the same thing. I know a lot about pigs and had never heard of that breed. 😛 THe really sad part is I know the term balnket hog and what it means! I just have bacon on the brain.

  • LeaveMeBe

    Oh, it is possible. It’s just not conducive to sleeping. 😉

  • Heather_Habilatory

    I like sleep. A lot. So much that sometimes I forget you can do OTHER things in bed.

  • LeaveMeBe

    Me too. But my husband always reminds me. 🙂

  • techsupp0rt


  • My mind was in the gutter when I read Blanket Hog, because for some reason, I thought it meant morning wood, or something.

  • newstarshipsmell

    LOL. I can’t relate to everyone else’s confusion on this one. I don’t know that I’ve ever specifically heard the term before, but it seemed immediately obvious what she meant. Maybe it’s because I’m a “blanket hog” myself, so I promptly grasped the concept. But the confusion is amusing…

  • LeaveMeBe

    Sad thing is, I’ve used that term all my life but I’ve had pig on the brain lately so it didn’t translate. 😛

    ETA: Dammit. Now I’m looking all crazy and shit. I didn’t realize that I made almost the exact same comment to CT’s comment yesterday.

  • 18th40

    Now ?

  • LeaveMeBe

    Fine. How about crazier than usual?

  • creamofflicka

    One of my last “Hook Ups” from my dating days left me a victim of blanket hogging. Few thing leave me feeling more vulnerable than waking up at 5 am slightly hungover, face down on the edge bed, not pillow, one foot on the floor, back of your nuts exposed god and all the elements.

    … oddly enough it was in Myrtle Beach.

  • My first marriage ended after 4 years, but Ida killed him before the vows were exchanged if we didn’t just get a second blanket. He would wrap up in it and I would be curled up, freezing. It would happen 3-4 times a night. I don’t think the woman over- reacted at all.
