martha burk update

Recently-recruited reader Matt Wilderman sent me this fitting addendum to my post about Martha's No-Show Minions at the Masters:

Speaking of audacity, that action at the Masters golf tournament put together by Martha Burk drew about 40 protesters (the AP reported, "A single bus pulled up to drop off Burk supporters - and 17 people got off.") which means there were more golfers IN the tournament AFTER the cut than there were people protesting them.

Standing directly in front of Ms. Burk was a kid - he had to have been a college student - holding up a sign where she could see it, which read: "Make me dinner."

Occasionally he would flip it over. The other side of the sign said, "Iron me a shirt."

Now - that's funny....

Yes, it is.

Turns out, this story gets better. Jonah Goldberg reports that the kid was a shok jok from Atlanta. Upon being interviewed by reporters afterward, he gave his name as Heywood Jablome, say it slow. Picked up by papers coast to coast. Retractions are coming out now. On the Corner, APR 22, AM
