BDBB Funny Flashback December 2007 - local NEPA news: Backup Grump indicted on sex charges (actually, THIS story is TRUE...the next story about the police lineup, I made up...). What made me laugh about the original true story, was the seriousness of the papers saying things like "the defunct Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Baron's backup Grump mascot faces sex charges"...etc... I began to imagine things like: "Starting Grump has press release stating he's not the sexual deviant, it's the BACKUP GRUMP!!!", and then the 3rd-string backup Grump saying it's not him, etc...and then a lineup with famous mascots and a priest in it. And does anyone see the humor in a picture of the Grump in the papers on sex charges? And having a picture of the Grump instead of the actual guy under the costume, as if the Grump actually exists? Instead of a picture of the Grump in the papers with a headline: "Backup Grump charged with sex crimes"...shouldn't they have had a picture of the real guy with his name and it's irrelevant that he's the "backup Grump"...or at least it's secondary to the story. The picture in the paper could be anyone in that Grump costume, in fact it could be empty! Was the Grump in his costume when he performed the sex acts? If he was, that opens up a whole new array of questions, like how did he do that? Was he handcuffed "in costume"? How did he fit in the police car and where did they get handcuffs that big? I mean, these are important questions that weren't addressed by the media! Although the backup Grump sex scandal doesn't approach the level of the ongoing federal probe into Luzerne County corruption, it remains to this day a dark period for NEPA sports mascots and priests that they are still trying to dig out of...

Backup 'Grump' mascot for defunct Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barons baseball team gets 11 to 27 years in jail for sex-related charges."
