Weird Menace’s 6K Scoot for the Cure

December 7, 2012

To acknowledge the beneficent Santa Claus-like nature of the U.S. taxpayer toward the mechanically-enabled unmotivated, I’m organizing my first annual scooter chair rally to benefit remedial math training for your nation’s elected lawmakers and leaders.

The rally, befitting its participation, will begin and end at City Hall on College Ave. The route will proceed in a northwesterly fashion down Washington St, and onto Prince Ave. The scooters will loop around the Krystal restaurant drive-thru before recommencing down Prince, stopping in front of the Pizza Hut before crossing the street. Again proceeding northwest, the rally will turn in the parking lot of the Social Security Administration building, where participants may retrieve any non-taxpayer benefits they have coming to them, then returning again briefly to Prince Ave. and then into the parking lot of J’s Bottle Shop. Scooter jockeys may elect to pause for refreshment or stock up for the month at J’s before rejoining the race for glory.

Hastening themselves once more down Prince Ave. toward downtown, the race route proceeds on the north side of the street to Pulaski St. and before the viewing stand in front of the Jessie B. Denney Towers, where the resident retirees may wave to their friends and watch the recipients of their national welfare programs drain their chair batteries up the hill towards College Ave.

Turning left on College, the route then loops around the driveways and parking lots of Bethel Homes, where any amount of illicit stimulants may be provided by urban entrepreneurial vendors, and will then continue down College Ave. toward the finish line at City Hall.

Participation will be limited to taxpayer-funded scooter chair and power chair recipients only, and is not open to those who may have afforded their own by not contributing their fair share to the federal government. The grand prize will be a 93-inch high-definition flat-screen television donated by the Athens Housing Authority. Runner-up prizes will include Wal-Mart gift certificates donated by Occupy Athens Inc.

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
