ANOTHER REASON NOT TO LIVE IN OHIO
I like Twisted Sister as much as the next guy dressed like a girl in football pads, but would I ever consider naming a village after Dee Snider? No. No, I would not. I’m sorry, but the mind behind the Strangeland franchise is just not worthy of commemorated in such a way. You wanna settle The Township of Townsend? Fine, I’m all for it. Turn Osborne, Australia into Osbourne, Australia? I’ll get behind that just ’cause of Ozzy’s legacy. Dimebagopolis? I will happily attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony.
But Dee Snider? Fuck would I name someplace after Dee Snider for?
Cridersville, Ohio, a village near Lima, plans to change its name for a day in honor of Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider, who is visiting town to host a March of Dimes Bikers for Babies ride.
At least it’s only for the day I guess. ‘Cause I understand that Dee Snider is probably the biggest celebrity ever to willfully come to Cridersville, but, y’know. Have some PRIDE, people.
