Squawking Man Interrupts U.S. Open Trophy Ceremony: VIDEO


Webb Simpson won the U.S. Open last night, and then this something interesting actually happened — a nut in a Union Jack mohawk cap decided it was time to share his birdcall with the world.

  3. You've used the word nut to describe people in a few stories recently. Could you stop using this language to refer to people who may have mental health problems (or even for people who may not have mental health problems but who are doing wildly inappropriate things)? Words like crazy, nut, wingnut, nutbar etc. do nothing to add to the could just report what happened without these flourises that set us back to the 1950s. I'm a big supporter of this blog and hate when people write that you are being too sensitive about certain things. Please try to hear me and not do the whole "too PC" thing...thanks. (Just because someone like Ms. Skrovota is profoundly hateful doesn't mean you can degrade her....I.e. we can't reserve "queen" and "faggot" for gay guys we don't especially like or 'thug' and the n word for black men who committ crimes etc.) I work in the mental health field and see the impact that mental health stigma has on people...can you respond here or to me privately? Thanks.

  4. Thank you, Adam, for your input. Believe me, everything is going to be alright. Just relaxe, now. See. That's better, isn't it? Calm and peaceful, that's the ticket. Now, we need to check our medication schedule, don't we? Oops, we might have missed a dose, or maybe two? That's okay. Everything will just fine in a bit, quicker than you can imagine. Soon, the innocent stray remarks written in reference to a silly story won't seem like such a big deal to you, and the world will return to being a really nice place. Calm and peaceful.

  5. That guy doesn't seem to have any mental health issues. Just a jerk being obnoxious. Is the term, "jerk" offensive to anyone?

    If so, I apologize to all of those who work at soda fountains and/or masturbators.

  7. Forget arresting him, give him his own show on any of the cable news networks. He can chirp at the pundits every time they try to shovel their brand of BS.

  8. "then this something interesting actually happened"

    There was plenty of interesting stuff happening on the course, watching Jim Furyk and Graeme McDowell --mmmm....Graeme MacDowell...mmmm-- fall apart on the back 9 allowing the hot Mr. Simpson to win was fun enough.

    As for Mr. Birdman, he's lucky he wasn't on the ground writhing in agony from a Taser blast. Doesn't look like he was laughing it up in the bottom picture at the link:

  9. that was the call of the male peacock, for those who are interested

  10. The only interesting thing about this video is how bad Bob Costas dye job is.

  11. If this had happened in Chicago, he'd have been brutally bludgeoned by the Police in front of the cameras.

    If it had happened at Beth Page in NY, he'd have been been found riddled by inaccurate) Police gunfire, followed by an official press conference where it was explained that the Police mistook his cellphone for a weapon.

    If it had been in New Orleans, he's have been shotgunned on the spot, then declared a looter.

    But since this happened in San Francisco, I'm sure the Authorities sat him down with a nice cup of tea and gave him a stern talking to...then apologized for causing him any distress.

  12. Has golf now become a sport of interest to millenial and Gen-X gays? My generation played tennis or badminton or croquet. Nothing too sweaty or strenuous for women of quality. One thinks of golf as very suburban white Republican (Mr. Woods notwithstanding). Something one's stockbroker or lawyer engages in. Very middle-class, and not LGBT friendly.
