    This is Velle Holmes:

    He’s a local grundle-grabbing rapper/skater/model/custom hat designer, originally from Revere:

    He is soon bringing his talents to Florida where he’s in the market for some nice young ladies to appear in his new rap videos:

    But before he leaves he has some loose ends to tie up, including meeting up with some friends to smoke some loud:

    Oh, and since he’s moving to a new state his Massachusetts DTA card won’t work anymore, so he’s selling his stamps:

    Newsflash – you’re doing it wrong Velle. First of all, you’re moving to Florida, which you definitely should NOT have announced. Your food stamp exchange value came crashing down. It’s a buyer’s market because people know you HAVE TO sell now. It’s like when Paul George said he was leaving Indiana in 2018 – everyone knew they had to get rid of him so what they could get in exchange plummeted.

    The normal market rate for Facebook food stamp transactions is 50%. Everyone knows that. So if you’re selling $194 worth of EBT on the Book, then you should be asking for $97 cash. And since you announced you’re moving to Florida and are desperate to sell, you can’t expect more than $50 at this point. If you think you’re getting $150 you’re out of your mind. Act like you’ve done this before, which based on your choice of headware, I’m quite positive you have.

    Chicago Bulls flat-brimmed hats? Never saw that one coming.

    Anyway, could someone please explain to me why a grown, able bodied man is on food stamps? Does this look like someone the state should be taking care of?

    Is he disabled? Is he a single mother? Is he special needs? Is he elderly? Nope. He’s just a young, aspiring rapper who doesn’t feel like getting a job. He’s got plenty of cash for shoes, iPhones, blunts, and skinny jeans though. Because obviously the money he makes isn’t reported to the IRS so not only is it tax free, it also qualifies him for government assistance.

    But yea Jim McGovern, keep telling people how rare this stuff is. Keep freaking out in Congress every time someone has the audacity to suggest that the system is being abused and cuts should be made. Keep raising our taxes so we can pay for this shit. Because it hardly ever happens. Ever.

      The card will be reloaded with $194 every month until next April is what he is saying

    2. mike

      it looks like he’s only about four feet tall

    3. Renee's Chin Drippings

      He’s a dwarf…err… sorry… “little person”… that’s why he’s on gummit assistance.

    4. jay

      Think that card reloads monthly…. So, the monthly value reloaded until 4/2018 for $150….

    5. Chip Striker

      Why can’t the state create a position where the persons job is to monitor this fraudulent activity?

      This one would be simple. Deactivate his card as soon as this posting is brought to their attention.

      turtleboy are you dumb? lack reading comprehension? what is it? his food stamp card will be reloaded every month. so 150 bucks someone could get 194 dollars in groceries every month until next april. obviously now he wont since he advertised his stupidity, someone will report him and they will close his account knowing that he moved.

      also, no one ever said food stamp abuse is RARE. but you know that. you know that they mean there are more people who use the assistance correctly than those who dont. but you have to make everything sound so dramatic. i cant take it. this blog used to be my favorite.

      Even better–most supermarkets have a video system that rivals a Vegas casino, see who is using the card and pick them up as they walk out the door. Treat it as a reverse 93A–the fine is triple the card. A few widely published convictions, and the incentive to buy hot EBT cards will diminish.

    8. They call me Ponch

      Lynn and Revere are the collective bunghole of the North Shore.

      It’s rigged for the billionaires!

      It’s also rigged so I have to spring for this dink’s new kicks.

      Fuck You

      Food stamps are federal. It doesn’t matter if you get them from Mass, you can use the card in Florida.

    10. sharon evans

      Oh shit he’s moving to Florida? That’s where I live!! I don’t want that POS here either. I don’t want him you have can have him he’s too dumb for me oh he’s too dumb for me. Sing a long with me
