First there was laughs from The Onion but now it’s the Hoboken Green Pepper
Hoboken’s political scene will be awash with more laughter if a new local website has its way. Da Horsey just heard about it and wants you know there’s more local insight and satire on the way in the form of the Hoboken Green Pepper.
Now most fans of online humor are familiar with The Onion. In fact one prominent local resident has had a hand in a round or two there. But hey, that ain’t Hoboken. In this mile square going online with a website letting everyone know who you are is akin to volunteering for a firing squad.
Some people don’t know what they are getting themselves into and even a little side dish vegetable needs to be made aware that crossing a political hobbyist like Councilwoman Beth Mason funded by hubby could get them an undeserving SLAPP.
So ye ole little green vegetable, don’t say you haven’t been warned. Desperate people are known to take desperate measures and ethics and the truth under the law has absolutely nothing to do with anything when it comes to Hoboken.
After all, Hoboken is special.
The Hoboken Green Pepper has two lovely opening salvos mingling Carlo’s Bakery, a revered landmark in town and also the unhappiness when the news is treated less than kindly, let’s leave it at that.
More importantly, the little veggie better have an active plan for handling comments. Beth Mason’s blogging operations are a serious enterprise and they live for nothing but hijacking stories, dodging questions and well doing what the boss pays them to do: fabricating.
Now that we have given our little green friend fair warning, Welcome Aboard!
Okay, go take a look for yourselves: http://hobokengreenpepper.blogspot.com/
