Anyone missing a crazy uncle? For that matter, is Walt still out of town?

From a FWIW reader:

Hi Christopher
So on Friday I was at the Greenwich Beach and my friend’s kids come running over saying there was a naked man over by the rocks at the point all the way at the end of the beach (where my kids and lots of kids look for crabs etc) Long story short called 911, GPD came, the dude was pleasuring himself, naked and had a bag filled with dildos etc all sexual predator perv stuff. All I know is he was cuffed, the kids had to give a statement so did their mom as guardian and they took him away. They did say he was not a Greenwich resident. I’m telling you this because I can’t understand why it’s not in the paper. All parents need to be aware that the beach is not perfectly safe and their kids can just run free, we still have to keep an eye out no matter where we are. Let me know if you have any questions about this. so creepy.

Black employee sues Benjamin Moore for “racist” paint color names. 

Turns out, Benjamin Moore already had “Clinton Brown” and “Confederate Red” in its lineup, but naming a new shade “Tucker Brown” was final proof, Mr. Clinton Tucker claims, of the company’s racist intent towards him.

Tucker made other allegations, including that the company has a “toxic” work environment that is hostile to minorities.

Tucker, who identifies himself in the suit as homosexual, claims that since he started at the company in 2011, “it was clear…that he was not part of the traditional culture of the company.”

His boss ignored an email Tucker sent requesting to be able to take off work to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the suit claims.

“This request was ignored and [the director of digital marketing], just mockingly smirked at the plaintiff on Martin Luther King holiday.”

Sounds to me like Mr. Tucker’s real problem is that he’s a whiny, entitled, she-bitch, and that type rarely does well in life.

The only difference is that Peter Tesei was never alive

 

Wound up and ready to go

Wound up and ready to go

Oklahoman candidate alleges that opponent was murdered three years ago and replaced by a robot.

The race for Oklahoma’s Third Congressional District took a bizarre twist when Timothy Ray Murray claimed incumbent Rep. Frank Lucas was replaced by a robotic body double three years ago.

On his Web site, Murray alleges the switch took place after Lucas was killed by the World Court.

In Tesei’s case, the foul deed was accomplished by the Greenwich Republican Town Committee – “we needed a limp noodle”, Republican party leader James Campbell told FWIW, “and while the real Peter was pretty much ideal, we decided to go for perfection, right from the start, so we put him aside and brought in our robot – so far, you’re the first person to even notice.”

We’re back!

Although briefly – I have so much of John’s stuff in my truck: guitars, amplifiers and skis, that I look like a Hank Williams/Jean Claude Killy Oakie heading for California, except that it’s in the other direction, so I’m off to Maine to drop it off. In the meantime, and now that the PC police have won their synthetic campaign to purge the name “Redskins” from the arena, here’s another project for them, found on the highest elevation long the old Federal Highway, in Maryland. The mountain top was so named to honor a slave, Nemesis (no kidding) who was killed fighting redskins in 1750 or so, but what difference, at this point does it make? Mr. Governor, take down this sign!
