FRED DURST FINALLY ABOUT TO GET THE RECOGNITION HE DESERVES
Well, this is just fucking amazing. Seriously. I’m not kidding. This just made my day in a way nothing else possibly could. Sometimes, something happens to restore your faith in life. This is one of these times.
Let’s start here… and keep in mind that this is a really real thing:
“The City of Austin is renaming the Solid Waste Services Department to better reflect all of the services the Department provides, including recycling, garbage collection, yard trimmings pick-up, street sweeping, litter abatement and litter control, household hazardous waste disposal, storm debris clean-up, Zero Waste initiatives and community outreach & education.”
Okay, so that’s pretty boring and whatever, right? But here’s where it gets interesting: the city is actually holding a poll, open to the public, to choose a new name for the Solid Waste Services Department. And guess which citizen-selected name is currently winning that poll in a fucking landslide?
FRED DURST SOCIETY OF THE HUMANITIES AND ARTS
Think I’m kidding? Well here’s the link to the poll, and here’s a screencap of the current top-five vote getters:
As you can see, it’s not even close. Durst is gonna take this thing in a walk.
Now, I doubt that the City of Austin will actually allow their Garbage and Poop Disposal Department to be re-christened in an homage to the Limp Bizkit front man, even if that homage is 100% ironic. But you gotta love the people of Austin for voting this way, and whomever Kyle Hentges (the dude who picked the name) is, he deserves, like, a million blowjobs from any woman of his choice.
This. Is. Fucking. BRILLIANT.
Apparently anyone can vote up to three times — I know because I just voted three times — so go here and show your support for this incredible cause. Voting ends on Thursday, February 10 at midnight, and the the new department name will be announced in late April.
Democracy can be an awesome thing sometimes.
Major, major, MAJOR thanks to both Justin X XIII and K-milo for the tip!
