The Final Word

One thing that bothered me about the whole HUMORLESS DOUCHE episode from earlier this week was the nagging question as to HOW David Hanners managed to get access to my cell phone number.

Well, yesterday, I called my parents to find out how everything is going in their retired world, and my mother mentioned that some guy from the Pioneer-Press had called them asking for: my cell phone number, my work number and my land line number (which I don't have).

So. . . if I'm to imagine how this all played out in the mind of David Hanners, I'm led to believe he basically was calling every "Rhodes" in the state of Minnesota, asking if the "Rhodes" he was calling was, or knew of, me. All in a quest to track down the person who created a parody petition and made parody comments on a petition site that is so riddled full of credibility holes, it's the Swiss cheese of petition sites.

Therefore, I have to give mad props to David Hanners for his tenacity in tracking down phone numbers, which was very "journalistic" of him. On the other hand, his unrelenting stupidity when it comes to the realm of parody kind of offsets the mad props for his tenacity.

Because, my God man, parody and satire were covered pretty extensively in my Media Law class in college, so you'd think a Pulitzer Prize winner would be able to grasp the concept just a little bit better. A LOT bit better.

Wow. That's kind of stalkerish. I hope you're armed, cuz the guy sounds kinda nuts.
(I know you could kick his ass, the burns on your feets show me so, but, still you ain't bulletproof, and if you are, I have a list of people for you to leave on krypton.)

Ha! Donna, I've seen a video of David Hanners singing on YouTube. I'm not too worried.
