First of all, I should apologize for the lack of posting recently. However, my wonderful sister was married this past weekend so the past week has been devoting to making sure everything was perfect for her. Actually scratch that, the past 27 years has been devoted to that but whatever. I’m not salty. In all honestly I would like to again congratulate Chelsea and Joe for their special day. While it was their day I feel like I won the reception. Just leading the charge in dancing and general fun having. If you want to read about another wedding, feel free to head over to Bitter Lawyer to check out today’s posting. Second, I can’t go much further without mentioning my Ohio Bobcats who proved again this weekend why Athens the most amazing place on earth. In all reality the State of Ohio is absolutely crushing the world right now in being awesome. Perfect record in March Madness and a fellow Ohioan just went back-to-back-to-back championships in the all-Ireland dancing championships. (Seriously, that story is a pretty impressive read.)
As usual, Florida, and its residents, are losing at life. Jeffrey Lee Thompson, 28, has been charged with battery and disorderly conduct after knocking out an Applebee’s manager following his poor karaoke performance. “He was intoxicated. It was karaoke night and he became very involved with his performance,” said Melbourne, Florida police. “He took his clothes off as he sang to the audience.” As fellow customers began to complain, the manager pulled the plug on the music and that is when Thompson punched the manager.
Before I begin, let me just say this to all the journalist out there: how do you not find out what song is being played? It could literally make or break this story. If Thompson is belting out Wilson Phillips “Hold On” then he deserves to get booed. But if he is jamming to “Call Me Maybe” then you can’t pull the plug. Song is straight fire. Second, since when does Applebee’s have karaoke? If you are singing at an Applebee’s you are basically in the D League of karaoke joints. Jeffrey Lee Thompson is as delusional as they come in the karaoke game. Nobody wants to see your Chicken Wonton Taco while they are getting down on a 2 for $20. Nonetheless, as a legal tip, just because “There’s No Place Like The Neighborhood” doesn’t mean you can helicopter your body parts on stage.
