Mayor of the Year

curse-words.jpgWill Wynn is the Mayor of Austin, Texas. One day in October he noticed a construction truck blocking traffic on one of the small city’s streets. So he walked over to the construction site, pulled a “do you know who I am” on them, and then busted out a string of threatening profanities. Wynn admits to it, saying:

I spewed a fog of profanity that is still floating down Shoal Creek someplace. I’m sorry if my language offended (the construction workers’) sensibilities.

First of all, I highly doubt anything Mayor Wynn spewed could’ve really offended the sensibilities of a construction worker. Second of all, “spewed a fog of profanity?” That’s a fantastic turn of phrase. I want this guy to be my Mayor!
