Dr Seuss-style disagreement ends in stabbing

Police in St Cloud, Minnesota said an argument over sidewalk etiquette led to a man being stabbed because he wouldn't move out of another man's way.

The 31-year-old victim told police he and the other man were walking toward each other on a sidewalk early Friday morning. Each man refused to make way for the other.

The St Cloud Times reported that the argument escalated into a physical fight. When it was over, the victim noticed he'd been stabbed several times in the stomach.

The incident eerily parallels the plot to the Dr Seuss story The Zax, in which a north-going Zax and a south-going Zax meet face-to-face, and refuse to move out of each other's way.

In the story, however, a highway is eventually built around the two, and no one is stabbed.

Authorities said the St Cloud victim's injuries were minor.
