See You Next Tuesday (Mormans and Gays)

See You Next Tuesday is the Boomstick's first regular themed column. It features the week's most laughable idiots and scumbags for your reading pleasure. 

The past week brought such truly great fodder for See You Next Tuesday, I couldn't pick just one. Check 'em out:

"Duh" Moment: "Kody Brown, the leading man on TLC's new reality series Sister Wives, about a husband and his multiple wives, is being investigated by the Utah police for felony bigamy. They were tipped off by the fact that he stars in a TV show all about how he is a felony bigamist." Don't believe me? Well I copied it from Vulture.

Bigamy is a third degree felony in Utah. While it's rarely prosecuted, in 2001 polygamist Tom Green (not that Tom Green) was convicted for his five marriages and spent six years in prison. He drew the attention of Utah authorities after promoting his lifestyle on national TV talk shows. Lesson: if your last name is a color and you have more than one wife, don't talk about it on T.V.. Duh.

"WTF?" Moment: First, Michigan Assistant Attorney General Andrew Shirvell stalked the University of Michigan's openly-gay student body president, Chris Armstrong. Then he wrote a blog about it called "Chris Armstrong Watch" (now, unfortunately, "for invited readers only"). Then he drew swastikas on pictures of Armstrong's face and called him a Nazi. Read the original story at Above the Law. Then Shirvell went on Anderson Cooper 360 where his high-pitched voice and hours spent outside an 18-year old's house cause Anderson Cooper to say, "You seem to be obsessed with this young, gay man.”

No comment on Shirvell's complete misunderstanding of how Nazis felt about homosexuals. If you check out the video below, you're doing yourself a favor: (Here's a transcript for at-work readers, but there's no substitute for seeing Shirvell in the flesh.)



Shirvell is currently on a "voluntary leave" from office. No word yet from Michigan's Attorney General on formal discipline for Shirvell, but I bet it'll be really rough coming from Mike Cox.

Folks, I can't make this stuff up. See you next Tuesday!

I need to watch that show... It looks creepily intriguing. Plus, if he goes to jail, I need to at least be able to reference the show and sound cool.

Nothing on Judge Jack "sex parte" Camp? Also, I want to see side-by-side pictures of Shirvell and Pee Wee Herman.

I second both motions by Brad. Not too late to run with this next Tuesday: http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5gI9AjoFv9mtHYhm0OC4K42nnIcZwD9IMALGG2?docId=D9IMALGG2

I will post about Judge Jack Camp after Halloween, when I have pictures of a certain mutual friend in costume. Who wants a clerkship? I know a position that just opened up...
