That Marty, Tener Tostones!

New Old Cartoon Villain Marty is not only culturally insensitive, he’s petty. He does realize he owes his entire reason for being in Milford to teenagers, doesn’t he?

I’m hoping against hope that this story ends with Marty homeless and eating out of the dumpster behind That New Mexican Restaurant. I’d be good with him reduced to waiting tables at That New Mexican Restaurant™ and getting a beatdown from the kitchen staff once they realize who he is.  I’m afraid even that would be asking too much. No, this crap will go on for a few more weeks until alpha male Gil delivers a pithy two-panel sermon to beta male Marty and Marty, in turn, delivers an on-air apology to the Padilla kids. No jobs lost, no lessons learned, no consequences for anyone involved – and no Reuben Award for Rubin.

  1. So Marty isn’t even playing anymore; he’s decided to out himself as an old-fashioned bigot…

    This doesn’t reflect well on Gilberto since he doesn’t even like Marty yet always indulges his interview requests… Gilberto can get Marty blacklisted from the airwaves in every major market with a mere phone call but never does because of reasons…

  2. I heard “That New Mexican Restaurant” was exactly that, a green chile stew-slinglin’ joint called Al B. Kirky’s…

  3. Again, the pronounciation of Jorge is Hor-Hay, not Hor-Gay!
    I’m not sure where the latter pronounciation is coming from, perhaps some mixed name used by Latin baseball players that Rubin remembers from his day job?

    I looked it up just to be absolutely sure, and there’s no arguing with youtube:

  4. This story is a whipsaw. The realism of long time radio jerks finally facing the music vs the insanity of a smalltown high school sports announcer thinking he’s a big shot leaves me just wondering how Marty’s held onto beatnik style for the last 50 years.

  5. To paraphrase David Bowie
    Oh, Man, look at that caveman go
    He’s in the freakiest showww

    C’mon, Guys, was anybody REALLY surprised? Anybody expecting Mar-TEEN to take the high road needs to switch allegiances to Snuffy Smith. This was the proverbial “when”, not “if” scenario. I woulda won a lotta money if this was a horse race and that’s just bettin’ in the “Show” department. I’d be livin’ large on Park Place if I bet to “Win”. Now we wait for the Second Strike from Paloma and her Gang in this nuclear warfare which will undoubtedly be a distraction from the basketball season that is getting dragged down to intramural status, given the REAL(unfortunately) battle ensuing between Marty and The Dove.
    At least we know now that Anonymous Calculus Guy not only buys his ties in the ropemaking department at Milford Unclaimed Freight but he’s actually a salesman for WDIG. Glad that got cleared up.

  6. Tune in tomorrow when Marty starts railing against the Jewish-owned media and how it all fits into the grand conspiracy plot from the One-World Government, the Bilderbergs, and the 12 men who secretly control the stock market…

  10. Full credit of course goes to Teenchy for Blag Flag comment.
    Pissed Jeans is a punk rock outfit From Allentown, PA. They have 5 albums dating back to 2007 with their first Hope For Men featuring the repetitive ear splitting riff of the song “Fantasy World”. Almost a stoner rock vibe to it. Then you have the strange, pulsating “Jogger”
    In 2009 we have King of Jeans and the song “Spent”. Some sample lyrics: So I went and got my car back, There’s a new noise this time…”. And the chorus:”I drank a cold glass of water… BUT IT DIDNT SATISFY!!!” Another slow talking, stoner rock feel to it.
    In 2013 we have “Honeys” which starts out with the fast paced, screaming “Bathroom Laughter”. Half way through is “Cafeteria Food” with lyrics such as “Stick figure family on the back of your car, you know I find that to be rude” sung in an effective monotone voice. Then the album ends with one of my favorites “Teenage Adult”. Sample lyric,”You don’t care about being a man, when you’re one of the boys!”
    In 2014 Pissed Jeans gives us the album Shallow with the songs “Boring Girls”,” I’m Sick” and “Wachovia “
    If you can find I’m Sick on Youtube with edgy comedian Bill Hicks ranting about sissy bands like N’Sync, before Pissed Jeans performs the song, I recommend it.
    “Why Love Now” came out in 2017. Not my favorite but opens with “Waiting On My Horrible Warning “ which is a great song.
    If Pissed Jeans comes to your town, check them out. I’ve only seen them once and look forward to another show from them.
