Happiest Man in Cleveland - 1912

Unread postby danwismar » Tue Mar 27, 2012 10:26 pm

Humor me guys, by checking out an interesting family story. I make a point not to promote my (mostly dormant) blog over here, but that was where it made sense to tell this story...prompted by my cleaning out a closet containing some of my dad's (d.1998) memorabilia, and revisiting an article from The Cleveland News of June 26, 1912.

Awesome story.

I always like digging through my great grandparents' stuff, you never know what you might learn about your family history.

Better be careful digging around in yours. Could result in deportation and a trial.

I was wondering who would be the first brainless cunt to spout off some cuntfaced Nazi joke after I typed that.

The answer was no surprise..
