So in 1856 this crazy pro-slavery congressman from South Carolina (Preston Brooks) beat anti-slavery senator Charles Sumner with his cane right in the middle of the senate chamber. Brooks was so into it he kept right on walloping poor Charles (who was trapped at his desk) until the cane broke. Intense.

These are spots for one of those embarrassing moments articles from YIKES magazine. Hilarious. There's "my pants fell down in spanish class," "my dorky mom was a field trip chaperone," "i puked on my crush," and "i fell down the stairs at middle school graduation"
