Hello Turtle Riders. As you know if you follow Turtleboy we are constantly getting censored and banned by Facebook for what are clearly not violations of their terms of service. Twitter has done the same, and trolls mass reported our blog to Google AdSense thousands of times, leading to demonitization. We can get by and survive, but we could really use your help.

Panhandling real estate is prime in Holyoke, and if you try to work your way onto someone else’s territory, you best be prepared to fight for it. This video is the most Holyoke thing I’ve ever seen.
The welcome to Holyoke sign in the background makes this even more perfect.
We’re not in Easthampton anymore Toto.
As for the fight, wasn’t much of a fight. I watch a lot of Nat Geo. I know how this stuff works. The male vying for the throne comes in and stakes out his claim and the sitting alpha male must defend his territory. Dominance is quickly established, and either the king is dethroned and goes off and dies, or the challenger is rebuked and he must find a new corner to panhandle in. In this case the king stay the king. People who had the misfortune of having to travel to Holyoke on this fine day were greeted to a junkie tapout.
Finally Oliver Cyst relents and realizes he has picked the wrong slopqueef to challenge. Notice how the veteran panhandler even holds onto his cardboard sign throughout the process.
This wasn’t his first junkie jamboree. As a matter of fact he’s made the news previously as a panhandler. Ya see, Holyoke recently passed a resolution that fines panhandlers if they collect money without a license, as they should. Why should you be able to collect money from people on a corner in exchange for nothing, but you can’t collect money from people on a corner and give them a product (like food and drink) in return? It’s an illegal, unlicensed business.
Well, the Holyoke alpha male panhandler’s real name is Matthew Leblanc.
He doesn’t have a job or an apartment, but he can afford a cell phone plan to post on Facebook and whine about how people aren’t giving him enough money.
Yea yo! Why won’t anyone send this obviously drug addicted twat muffin $20? He swears he won’t use it to put Diego the friendly local heroin dealer’s kids through college. If you can’t trust a panhandler who drops n bombs on social media then who can ya trust?
Last year he made the news when he went to the media and whined about how unfair it was that he couldn’t beg strangers to finance his drug habit earlier this year.
“The city ordinance — they’re talking about putting up barriers. How crazy is that when there’s people out here that are hungry. They could turn the empty buildings into shelters. There could be a lot more help for us. We don’t like standing out here. It’s hard enough with us out here trying to make money and now they’re going to do this? That’s pretty much telling the people, ‘Hey, if you give them money, we’re going to punish you. It’s hard enough out here getting help. Sometimes I stand out here all day to make $20,” LeBlanc said.
Hey Matt, here’s an idea – get a job. This is not work.
It’s you refusing to work. Those empty buildings belong to people. You can’t live in them just because they’re empty. That’s not how any of this works. Plus, you’re the type of moron who would manage to find a way to accidentally burn it to the ground and get a firefighter killed.
Nevertheless the corner will remain his until further notice because the challenger, Jaroslaw Bartoszewicz, was in way, way over his head. Jaro is from Chicopee, so he obviously wasn’t aware of how the Holyoke panhandling hierarchy worked. Now he knows.
