McGruff: Taking It on the Chin
Poor McGruff. It's bad enough that he can't talk--no mascots can--and that he looks like he stepped out of the 1970s (Columbo called; he wants his trench coat back), now he's getting punched.
Over the weekend a Metro bus driver was charged with socking a patrol officer who had his McGruff head on. Worse, it was in front of a group of kids.
Allegedly, the driver, Shawn Brim, did it to be funny. It is--sort of. But, please, not in front of the children. Perhaps Brim could have pretended to punch McGruff and then turned around and put his hands behind his back.
Then the kids would have gotten the right lesson: Do the crime, do the time.
There's still time to enter my "Photoshop Till You Drop Contest." The deadline is tomorrow and the rules are simple: Take a digital photo of some sign in the Washington area, alter it in a clever way, then e-mail me the result. I'll post some here and treat the creator of my favorite to lunch. Send your creation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
