Here’s a hilarious story out of the lovely city of Holyoke about sexually suggestive hot dogs:
Sexually explicit photos of hot dogs were posted over the past several months on the Facebook page of Nick’s Nest, a local hot dog restaurant in Holyoke, the business’ owners say.
Holyoke City Councilor Jennifer Chateauneuf runs Nick’s Nest with her husband Jeff, and says it started from her role in politics, “His posts went from absurd to what I believe is sexually explicit photos and posts on our business page.”
Holyoke City Council debated a proposed ordinance for panhandling in September, where Chantaneauf said she was misquoted and taken out of context. There was backlash, and resident James Bickford started posting the hot dogs.
Nick’s Nest started selling hot dogs in 1921 and the Chateauneufs bought it in 2005. They say the most recent controversy with the postings on their Facebook page hasn’t caused a loss of business that they have seen yet, but it has caused emotional distress. Chanteauneuf recently asked Mayor Alex Morse to remove Bickford from any city boards he is on.
Chanteauneuf family Attorney Steve Buoniconti said, “Exposing families, exposing children to those posts speaks of a person’s character, and that character isn’t someone who should be representing the city.”
Mayor Alex Morse released a statement saying Bickford was no longer on any municipal boards. The statement reads:
Dear Councilor Chateauneuf,
This letter is a response to your February 1 letter demanding the removal of James Bickford from governmental positions. James Bickford does not serve on any municipal boards, nor on any position over which I have appointing authority. I look forward to working with you on issues important to the people of Holyoke.
Jennifer Chanteauneuf’s husband Jeff said, “He’s claiming it’s his First Amendment right, what rights does my wife have? What rights do we have of privacy? What rights do we have of someone continuously harassing you? When does that harassment end, when does it stop?”
Bickford’s Attorney, Peter Vickery said the court found no probable cause to issue a criminal complaint. “The idea that someone should be criminally prosecuted for posting- amusing by some standards- coarse and crude by other standards- images on Facebook accompanied by captions about hot dogs and their phallic appearance. The idea that somebody should be criminally prosecuted for making those postings online, criticizing a politicians political stance is ludicrous.”
Bickford said that he has not done anything wrong, and the Chateauneufs are now trying to make him look bad.
Here are the things that James Bickford posted to the Nick’s Nest Facebook page:
He pens under the name “Pronoblem Francis Baalberith,” and evidently this guy is a major pain in the ass in Holyoke. The guy considers himself an “artist,” and we all know there is nothing worse than someone who thinks they’re an “artist.” All they do is make shit and tell you it’s art. You’re just too dumb to interpret the real meaning of their “art.”
But with that said, I still gotta side with this guy. What is this city councilor even whining about? So some asshole posted some shit on your Facebook page. Big deal. Block him, report him to the imaginary Facebook police, and take down his posts. Problem solved.
But instead they’re trying to get this guy arrested? For what? Sexually suggestive posts? Hot dogs are shaped exactly like penis shafts. How can a hot dog not be sexually suggestive? And please, spare the nonsense about the children seeing this stuff. If your kids are on the Internet they’ve already seen things that are a million times worse than some some hot dog penises.
This quote from the City Councilwoman’s husband says it all:
“He’s claiming it’s his First Amendment right, what rights does my wife have? What rights do we have of privacy? What rights do we have of someone continuously harassing you? When does that harassment end, when does it stop?”
Newsflash – when you’re on Facebook you have voluntarily given up any rights to privacy. Welcome to reality. What rights do you have to stop someone from harassing you? The block button. When does the harassment end? After you hit the block button.
Boom. Problem solved. And quite frankly someone posting pictures on Facebook has to be the least of anyone’s concerns in Holyoke.
