I’m glad the local guy is doing well, but can’t he clean up and wear something nice? No wonder Seattle ranks high in the worst dressed national rankings. Take some of the $71k and buy a suit.

C’mon, Snuff, a suit? He’s from Ballard, for goodness sake! At least he’s not wearing greasy overalls!

No, he can’t.

Also, if you don’t like the local culture, you can leave. Thanks!

Q: Who Cares

Another idiot gets money and his 15 minutes of fame that will both soon leave him never to return.

At the least he should get a haircut, a shower and a suit in that order.

I ride the bus with this fellow every weekday morning and it couldn’t happen to a lovlier person. I can assure you that he is well-groomed and appropriately attired. I am most impressed with his conscientiousness. He takes his young son to child care in the morning on his way to work. He and his wife have prioritized a quality child care for their children which means getting off the bus and walking his child to preschool and then returning to the bus in order to complete his trip to work. If only there were more Seattleites who cared as much for family and community instead of wasting time making ignorant and envious remarks on the internet.

A shower? Your TV has smell-o-vision? What are you talking about?

Also, a four-time jeopardy champ is an idiot? Hmmm. Me thinks we know who the idiot is.

And lastly, why bedgrudge a regular dude a bit of scratch and a moment in the spot light? What, are those things reserved for more deserving celebrities like Q: Who Cares, the legendary bog commentor?

Who cares? I care!

Go Tom!

Idiot? No way! Tom is truly a smart, clever person. Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy, either.
