This is a day for celebration and lessons! A true miracle happened in the wee hours of the morning on our humble, uplifting, non-mean, website. We have our very first celebrity comment!
That’s right, a true grouchymuffin.com celebrity is here to tell
the none of you reading this world what he thinks!
Last week, in a post called, “This will terrify the peanuts out of you,” I introduced the world to Hambone the clown. If you missed it, please take the time to read it HERE
This morning I received a comment from Hambone , yes the ACTUAL Hambone.
Ouch! Feel like I should crawl in a hole, or something…. Just a guy that likes to entertain! Didn’t mean to creep you out. I’ve been trying for a long time to figure out how to make a portable one-man-band thing… I seen one of these on a web page… Thought it would be fun to create one, and be goofy with it… That’s all. The credits (I admit) was a bad attempt at humor. I do like beans thou… The Amber Alert was a little harsh! I have a son, and would not wish that on anyone!!!! Thanks for all your wonderful comments about me…. (A person you don’t even know) Just felt like I needed to defend myself.
Thanks (I Think?)
My sincerest apologies to Hambone and his son.
See Hambone, like you, I’m in the glamour profession of entertainment. My job is to fashion
balloon animals laffs out of clever words and delight the world.
Sometimes, my words are so hilarious and prolific they border genius, other times, they can be sharp knives of death. You know, like the knife you DON’T carry in your floppy shoes.
It looks like my harsh and flash judgement of you has done the latter, and for that I am regretful.
Darling readers my heart is crying, why? Because I can’t help but imagine a jolly clown excitingly looking up why his humble you tube video (that when I posted it a week ago had only 280 views) was gaining so much popularity. (As of post time, there were almost 11,500 views of the video to date!)
He googles himself and sees the #3 search result (grouchy muffin) and decides to click on it. He not only finds himself being discussed, but he reads my postulation that he’s a murderous clown to be feared.
Talk about a bum out. (Slide trombone wah wah sound not available.)
I’ve learned some lessons through this celebrity encounter, all of which I will share with you now…
1. Hambone is a FATHER! A father of a son who is lucky enough to have a papa that is the finest One-Man-Band Stumpf Fiddle player the world has ever seen (not kidding, he really lays it down!)
2. Hambone is NOT A MURDER. He’s a good sport who doesn’t take life or himself seriously.
3. Hambone loves beans! (As mentioned previously he wont kill you for them, even if it IS the last can.)
4. My words are like knives dipped in battery acid.
and the most important thing I learned…
THERE IS NOT NEARLY ENOUGH HAMBONE ON YOUTUBE!!!!
Hambone, I hope you accept this sincere “sorry, if my yuk-yuks bummed you out.”
That being said, we here at grouchy muffin are thrilled to have our FIRST CELEBRITY COMMENT. In honor of this clown’s good humor and incredible hillbilly musical instrument prowess, here’s a clip of Hambone playing the jaw harp!
One last thing, Mr. Hambone, sir…
In the future, when you decide to upload more vids to you tube, you have an open invitation to debut them on www.grouchymuffin.com
I mean it, there’s not enough Hambone on the internets, and it would be my pleasure to premiere your latest wares RIGHT HERE!
