Another Brush With Fame?

March 17, 2009

I realize domestic battery isn't funny...however, I felt compelled to post the following story, partly for the irony of the t-shirt, partly because I'm pretty sure I went to college with this guy. He was actually a pretty good friend and didn't mind that I talked about dry-humping on my radio show every week (he was one of the station managers). Ah, good times, good times. I should point out that Brad was one helluva nice guy and a good friend, and I was totally blown away to hear his name tied in with all this.

Anyway, I consider this a brush with fame because I heard about it on the radio today here in North Carolina, which means that it's semi-national news. Of course, I heard about it because of the unfortunate shirt that he was wearing. *sigh*

I double-checked with the alumni page on my college website. Turns out this is my friend. I am so rubbing elbows with the stars.

EDIT: My friend, TWCWTBSPDHB, pointed out that Brad also made the front page of the Drudge Report. My stock is flying up the charts! FoxNews now also has the story up.

Also, this really isn't a laughing matter guys. I mean, Brad and I had a lot in common: both from northern Indiana, both graduated in 1998, both lived in Gallagher Hall, both have wives who better have the dishes done when we get home...

At least he wasn't wearing one of those "Wife Beater" T's.

Damn it, this isn't funny. Serious comments only.

I bet next time he asks for mayo on his sandwich, she'll use Miracle Wip like she's supposed to.

Crap, did it again! One more try:

If he'd just learned the proper execution of the sleeper hold, all of this would have been avoided, because, no bruising.

Son of a biscuit, this is all Kirk Cameron's fault, I'm sure of it. Somehow.

The key is to parlay this brush with fame into big bucks somehow.

That's what she gets for knitting him that shirt in the first place.

And you know what else I got out of this? The knowledge that you're not as old as I originally thought. Huh.

Gwen said...

I would rant and rail about what a tool Brad is but I suspect he will be lambasted by funnier people than I for a long time to come.

Nej said...

His mug shot could have been worse, at least he's got that going for him.

(sigh)

@ Scope: Yeah, I himmed and hawed over whether I should put in a wife beater joke, but this is my friend we're talking about, he is a nice guy (usually), and I know some people would be offended. And still, I went ahead and did it. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to get back on the bus to Hell. I've heard Michigan is nice this time of year.

@ Some Guy: The only way I know how is to somehow latch myself to Oprah. I better start writing a crappy, sappy, shitty book.

@ Moooooog35: Or overcooking his steak.

@ Sassy Britches: And...Sassy Britches returns that youthful glow to my skin that oil of olay couldn't. Wait, what? You thought I was old?

@ Gwen: He really is a nice guy, but I can't defend him here. Rant and rail away! Also...in that picture...I could just drink you up. Except, you know, for that whole allergy thing...

@ Nej: I'm comfortable enough with myself to admit that Brad's a good-looking guy. I thought the same about the mug shot: "Well, at least he looks good in the photo..."

Sassy Britches said...

I totally did! Maybe you'd posted hints or direct wordings about your age before, but I never picked up on it. I had you at 36-38. And if you graduated with the dude in the mug shot, they're saying he's 32, so...whoopsie! Yay for your returned youth in the eyes of Sassy B!

Perhaps he should track down a shirt that says "I heart jail"

Apparently domestic violence is the new black (and blue)! It's the latest "rage"! Get it? Never mind.

Is it even worse that I was like, "Man, I wish I was famous, too?"
