JOHNNY: No. Come to think of it, I haven’t. Hasn’t he trying to get some sort of long distance romance started.

ZOMBIE: (Telephone Filter) Yeah. It looks that way. I’m wondering if he’ll use it as an excuse to move again, trying to stay one step ahead of the process servers.

  1. Wow, the Grouch must be pretty stupid to go running everytime he’s about to be served. Are there really people out there that stupid? Wait, I seem to recall reading about a man so stupid that he got a dude to dye his hair pink and pretend to be his girlfriend all while doing a bad imitation of a woman’s voice on a podcast. That’s almost as stupid as moving to avoid service. Good thing this is fiction or the Grouch may be having an uncomfortable conversation with a judge.

    • He’s even stupider. He’s already been served. He has acknowledged that, and replied to the court with mind-numbingly stupid motions, like Hoge has no case because a Maryland Court cannot enforce a settlement agreement negotiated with a Maryland Court. OK, don’t like that one? The Maryland case, brought under Maryland State law, should be transferred to Milwaukee, where the judge might be drunk enough to buy some of The Grouch’s finest Slovenian horse product.

      The Grouch has a positive duty to keep the Court (and Hoge) appraised of his whereabouts. Johnny’s client mails things to the address on file with the Court, and The Grouch has been properly served with the documents. Didn’t get them because you moved and didn’t tell the Court? Too bad, so sad.

      As you say, good thing this is fiction because nobody would believe such a stupid person could tie his own shoes in real life.

  2. Good grief, BS is posting photos on his sock account. It is clear that this dude is NOT the same person as in some other photos. Yet another hair color, different face. Sorry, BS is trollling us, and no doubt having a good time doing it. I wonder who the guys are, however. Neighbors? Escorts?
