ATTENTION Last Minute Shoppers

Remember, there is only one shopping day left.........

Are you having a tough time figuring out what to get that Fall River Resident who has everything....including additional stormwater fees, fines for trash cans with no lid, excessive dumping charges, and increased parking tickets, to mention a few?

Get the beloved Fall River resident in your life a PRIDE CITYWIDE GIFT CARD so your loved one can allow water to trickle down their roof this holiday season or pay their fines.

Cards may be purchased in $50, $100, or $1000 increments because anything less wouldn't get you very far in this city.

*May not be applied to purchase of Correia cocktail party fundraiser tickets, purchases of already dedicated medians, or for general graft purposes.

Oh my, looks like love is in the air. Personally I would order the lobster. But that's just my choice.

I don't think your blog needs help. i think it's doing just fine shamrock. Don't divulge your identity.

Yeah! Go on Mike's show and when you say something that pisses him off, he can scream at you and threaten to beat the crap out of you like he did to Keri Rodrigues! Sounds like a great idea!

Trap fail!

Come on, the DAY after you say you are going to go on "the biggest crime spree the likes of which this city has never seen before" if you got the addresses of the 'bloggers?'

Don't be a douche...

puck said...

Mikey, let it go. Shamrock would wipe the floor with you and leave you whimpering like a little girl.

RadioFree said...

This post is hysterical. Pure snark. I love it.

The comments ... are even more hysterical.

So whatcha gonna do Shamrock?

Anonymous said...

Mikey,

Sham will agree to do your show if you wear you assless chaps with the shamrock on the from like when you got busted in Somerset.

puck said...

By the way...LOVE the FR gift card. Is it good for dinner on Restaurant Row?

shamrock said...

Dear Mr. Hurricane,

I must respectfully decline your trap/offer. I just don’t know what it is; but there is something in my gut telling me not to meet the person who, yesterday, said he wanted the names and addresses of the bloggers to commit “a crime spree the likes of which this city has never seen before.” Call me paranoid………..

Hey shamrock, more people read your blog than listen to his show so please don't go on and give him any ratings boost, allow him to fade away just like many of the WSAR talk show hosts who came before him.

Shamrock,

What is that number- the fcc?!

Anonymous said...

What is the actual value once purchased and will it go out of business like the other gift cards we are being warned to not purchase this year?

I hear $50 bucks will get you a specialty drink at the martini bar... The Correia Cocktail, Fall River on the rocks.

Anon 10:16. Call it...

shamrock said...

yeah call it!

The Hurricane said...

Wow..watching way to many movies..actually i was impressed with the coverage about david miller and i thought you drove the story and everyone else picked it up.The offer is good whenever you want it.As far as it being a trap get real,my joking comments about bloggers was in a response to what a caller said,it was a joke that lasted no longer than ten seconds.Are you really that scared or paranoid to think this is a trap?Think about it for a second..the radio station is a hugely public place,stop listening to rumors ,lies and come see for yourself.I know if talked about somebody as much as i am talked about here i would want to meet and talk to the person first..

Shamrock,

That was awesome (the card and the number)!

Good job!

I am glad you are not going on that show... He needs you way more than you need him....

FRC said...

Hurricane,

I don't think you ever even covered the Cpl. Miller story.

For its part, WSAR also tried to minimize the controversy allowing elected officials to say that the controversy was created, and to spread the myth that the 1991 plaque was hidden under overgrown shrubs and the welcome sign.

Will anyone at WSAR challenge the Mayor's false assertion that the Cpl. Miller Green was unkempt?

It's amazing how the 1991 plaque can be seen from space despite the Mayor stating that it was hidden under a sign and overgrown shrubs.

Anonymous said...

Hurricane, what are you talking about? I think you may have been talked about on this blog once. MAYBE twice, but certainly not very often.

This post isn't even about you, so get over it.

Anonymous said...

Yeah Shamrock! It's not like Mike Herren has ever been arrested for assaulting someone in a highly public place before!

Oh, wait ...

Anonymous said...

win/win for Herren
You go on his shgow, you lose the comfortable blanket of anonymity and non-accountability.
You don't go, you look like a coward.
Say, what you want about Herren, people know who he is and where to find him.

Sounds like desparation to me.

Why would Shamrock want to go on Herren's show? The guy is all around yucky. Shamrock has nothing to gain. I know Herren belives that he is this world renound superstar. But really it is a 5000 watt station which caters to local shut in's and SSI receipents.

The Hurricane said...

Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me..if they did i would have died a thousand deaths on this blog and several others.My intentions were to give an oppurtunity to several of the bloggers to come on my show and talk about the role of bloggers and other un conventional news sources.Lefty has been invited ,a gentlemen who runs a newspaper out of Swansea has been invited as well.Unlike other people who have had my time slot we have an open door policy on my show,,ask Paul Viveiros,OmariWalker,etc...Infact Paul had a restraining order put on him by the former host of my time slot but on my show he was giving an oppurtunity to state his case as Omari will..So the door is open if you want it its there and again with all the rumors,lies, and hate on these blogs i would think it would be not only fair but prudent to get to meet the person who is the focal point of all this disscussion.The door is open to come on the radio.Also i would love to answer any questions the blogging community has for me and set the record right about the many lies and rumors about me much of it being public record..I am here ,out in public every day i anxiously await your response

Anonymous said...

Hi Lefty,
Just as Ed Garcia stated on another notable blog, "I have no dog in this fight". Just offering some advice to a blogger that has always been fair and just. Carry a big stick and assume you will need to use it.

To The Hurricane:

Are you serious? Sticks and Stones may break my bones? How old are you?

Don't kid yourself. Aside from ONE blog post, the only time you've been discussed on this blog, is when you or one of your buddies won't shut up about you.

Sticks and Stones

Another veiled threat in reference to a crime spree??

Get F*#ked Herren. We all know what an insincere pig you are. Don't you think it is a little late in the game to try and change your reputation. Especially when you are still doing the same crappy s#it that earned you your disgusting rep in the first place.

Anonymous said...

Shamrock, brave freedom fighter, doesn't have the guts to face Herren, under her real name, in public. Brave, brave blogger!

Anonymous said...

Common sense. Why would anybody spend time in a room with that belching, farting creep unless they had to.

Anonymous said...

Knowing Mike's reputation with women, why would she? So he can pull a "Herren" on her, as he did to Keri?

Anonymous said...

Oh so Shamrock is a she? Unless she is a stripper she shouldn't go on the show.

Anonymous said...

We all know how herren handles the"shes". You best not bend over and make sure you duck.

Herren's gonna be crushed if he finds out Shamrock is a guy. I don't think the boyish charm is gonna work.

Anonymous said...

There's a story in today's paper about Herren dropping a dime on a prostitute who got caught in a sting at a hotel in Somerset. Of course it says that a "disgruntled customer" dropped the dime but we know it's Herren. Sources say he was disgruntled because she tried to charge him by the pound...

Anonymous said...

For those who are wondering whether anon was talking about the fat prostitute, which are the only ones who will touch Hurricane, or about Hurricane himself since is definitely bloated these days and probably about 300 pounds, the answer is yes...

Did you hear Herrens new years resolution today. Stop cheating on my wife......who thef#@k would marry him.

Anonymous said...

I Love the Card, can you print those up, I'd love to use that for my storm water fee.. Hurricane was the disgruntled customer, whew!! WoW!! Guess I need to read these blogs more often, Shamrock... The Herald news and WSAR got nothing on you!
Peace

shamrock said...

Thanks for reading, and yes you should read the blogs more often....but I am pretty certain a commenter was just kidding, I don't think Herren was the disgruntled customer.
