Kitchen Fire

Originally published at "PRT Is A Joke" IS A JOKE v.1
Words written with wildcards (***, !!!, etc.) was the way we originally wrote
Ken Avidor, Ken, and Avidor.

It's often said those who can't stand the heat should get out of the kitchen. In *** ******'s case not only can he not stand the heat (reacting badly to anything he perceives as a personal attack), but he stays in the kitchen (by continuing to dish out abuse at others). In fact, he's setting fire to the restaurant:

:: *** has attacked your Editor: "your voice most likely carries all the tell-tale inflections of a raving crack-pot." This immediately after writing "If you and I lived in England I could sue you for slander and defamation and I'd win." He won't even respond to me anymore (Source, Comment 3).

:: Has attacked a dead man, A. Sheffer Lang, former board member of T2K.

:: Is fascinated with State Senator Michele Bachmann (previously documented) as though she were a bright, shiny object.

Now he's Photoshopping State Rep. Mark Olson's head on Queen Victoria's body, all because two years ago Olson said he thought "Some sex education encourages touching and intimacy. [Young women] need to protect their purity" (emphasis, Source). In addition, *** adds to the smear by asking "So what does Rep. Mark Olson know about "ladies"?", pairing this insinuating question with the data that Olson used to be a "log home builder" (as in Log Cabin Republican? Just asking.) and is unmarried.

Maybe *** missed this part of history class, but Victorian sexual repression, if that's what he's trying to smear Olson with, was about the era, not the monarch. And it was probably all propaganda anyway: promiscuity, drug abuse (such as opium dens) and other illicit activities were probably as widespread then as today. Even the Queen herself had a dalliance, the Scotsman John Brown, although that may never have been consummated--

Hold on, I've lost track: is *** smearing Olson as: a Puritan; a closet case; a bachelor; a constitutional monarch; or poorly educated in British history?

*** ******. He's all about the luv.
