File this one under debatable newsworthiness, last Monday or sometime over the last weekend, I’m too lazy to go back and check, David Howard over on the Action Alameda blog posted this about City Manager John Russo’s Facebook status. To quickly provide some context, apparently John Russo along with the City Council went on a boat tour of the Estuary.
Evidently someone who has access to John Russo’s Facebook status page determined that there was something outrageous about John Russo’s status and quickly sent it to David Howard who also deemed it newsworthy and posted immediately about it.
And of course the commenters at Action Alameda had some things to say about it as well including someone who misunderstood former City Council candidate and former editor of the Alameda Journal Jeff Mitchell’s comment as implying that he was on the boat tour as well.
I’m not sure why Action Alameda found the Facebook posting newsworthy, perhaps they found the expletive shocking or the phrasing to be unbecoming of a City Manager, who knows why some folks get all worked up over some things, but what is clear is that apparently none of the commenters or even the author of Action Alameda’s blog is a fan of the brilliance of the Lonely Island.
If so they would have understood the fairly obvious pop culture reference, but at least John Russo’s Facebook friends did, and the last guy pretty much gave away the whole joke.
And everyone knows he was drinking Santana champ because it’s so crisp. And speaking of Lonely Island they had a pretty hilarious bit at the Emmys last night.
