Turtleboy Sports is the rogue media source in town. We say what we want because we don’t believe in censoring opinions. This is why the hippies hate us – the truth scares the shit out of them. It’s the reason we’re allowed to call out fake pastors like Aaron Payson who think that City Councillors have to drop everything they’re doing and respond to ridiculous emails designed to catch Mike Gaffney saying something they disagree with which they will then use against him. But the rest of the media in this town plays by different rules. They pretend like they’re not controversial and thus they don’t get boycotted. But as we’ve seen with Spanky and Old Balls at the Telegram, they can offend just as many people without any repercussions. Because at the end of the day they’re no different than Turtleboy.
Anyway, one of our favored media outlets is Worcester Magazine. They’ve been around forever and Walter Bird does a good job over there putting out some quality columns. Well they have a blurb called Worcesteria where one of their reporters, Tom Quinn, writes about the weekly comings and goings in Worcester. We think he’s pretty funny. But today he officially crossed the line into Turtleboy territory by taking a steamy dump on catholics everywhere:
I don’t care that Tom Quinn wrote this. It’s a free country and we do the same exact shit over here at Turtleboy. Don’t like it? Don’t read Worcester Magazine. But this part right here would get Turtleboy lynched in town square:
“I’ve seen Catholic priests hold up a cup of wine and tell people they magically transformed it into blood, and everyone managed to keep a straight face then. These are the same people who claim David Blaine’s card tricks must be sleight of hand, by the way.”
Like I said, I think anything is fair game. But at the same time, you’re either a Turtleboy-esque smut blog or you’re the mainstream media. You can’t be both. If Worcester Magazine and Tom Quinn wanna make fun of catholics, go for it. But you’ve officially entered Turtleboy territory if you do.
My question is, what time does the boycott start? I mean, if you’re a catholic, as thousands of Worcesterites are, he basically just said everything you believe in is a joke. Thinking that the wine you drink in church is the blood of Christ is so silly, and so comical, that it must take everything in you not to laugh out loud. Get it??!!
Like I said, more power to Tom Quinn for saying whatever the hell he wants to say. If he thinks the catholic faith is a joke then by all means, say what you want. It’s a free country. Just admit that you are what you are – Turtleboy 2.0.
