this just in from the No Name Tribune

Dotsero-Internationally renowned controversial lame artist Crisco was swept away by the surging waters of the Colorado late Tuesday.The alleged artist was engaged in an eclectic and unpopular project to coat all the rocks from Eagle to New Castle with 1/2 inch of his namesake vegetable shortening tinted with orange food coloring.The swarthy Albanian harelip was assembling a psuedo crucifix composed of a tv antenna and an effigy of Madonna,the pop star not the virgin mother of God,fashioned from elk dung,when he plunged into the frigid water just above the rapid known to local kayakers as Upper Death.Witnesses,rwo toothless vagrants from Gypsum,said he dissappeared into the maw only to reappear bouncing off rocks and taking extended boatless holerides downstream'' that dude got worked in them waterfalls' said Gypsumite Clem Sorgum.Crisco's greasy lifeless body was finally lodged in a rock cluster above the Grizzly Creek rest area.
Extraction of the body presents difficulties for local authorities'We may not be able to get him out unless the water goes down,hell we may wait for high water and let Utah deal with him' said Glenwood rescue chief Norm Dinglehorst.Efforts were made to enlist local kayakers for a rescue,but Crystal Valley hotshots Cutch Edgeworth and Cody Chamberlain refused.

Wow and people call me too serious. I thought this was damn funny and well thought out without being too offensive. My call on it is that we have left all threads on this art project over the river on the main forum so I am going to leave it. But if you think it should be moved then fire away. The anti move, anticensorship crowd has been having a heyday recently so lets hear from the other side.

ADMINS,
in hindsight maybe you should censor me,it probably hits too close to home for many people on this forum,even though it was obviously meant in jest.

It made me laugh.

I have, myself, have discovered that jokes about death often fall flat on the buzz. However, I think Crisco is funny in just about any context.

I think it would be nasty to put a used boat for sale under a fake-o tragedy post, but a joke? I think that was clever. It took some balls. Some people won't like it but I think it makes it even funnier.

I thought it was hilarious and even more so since I was relieved that no one bought the farm...except Crisco. Rip.

I think these responses say it all. Everyone has a different opinion of what is offensive and what should be censored. So why do one or two people get to decide what gets censored on the buzz?

Not very objective in my opinion.

Why not give the readers of the buzz some way to tag posts as offensive and when that reaches some percentage of total readers, pull the post.

That was a great write. I was laughing. Title did catch me off guard ... but that was good. Heard a fence is going up at the Utah/CO line to keep Cristo out of Utah jurisdiction.

Fuck that. Great post!

ScottW, you represent all that is wrong with the buzz these days. Go to your fridge and pull out that bottle of preserved man juice,microwave to 99 degrees and throw some on your face. At least it will remind you of better days when your ex-boytoy Rico was giving you face shots and your mood was less uptight.

i wasn’t suggesting censorship or moving the thread, just saying the title scared me, that's all. We’ve just gone through so many real tragedies on the river recently.

(I recently heard a report on NPR about a group of families of murder victims who don't like "murder mystery" dinner theatre. They asked "would anyone ever have a "rape mystery" dinner?... "oooh, fun, lets find the rapist?" I thought, wow, good point. Sometimes firsthand experience just makes one sensitive to things meant in fun/jest.)

No big deal - great post, poor title - in one humble opinion. I'll take the suggestion to lighten up into consideration though.

Funny stuff. I thought you spelled Cristo's name wrong.

As for the people who don't like to read about tragedy, don't click on the link. Really, how hard is that?

If murder victims don't like murder mystery theater, then tell them not to go.

I'm not a fan of kiddie porn, so... I don't look at it.

And, how many of you offended people think you know someone who may have had a tragedy in Glenwood Canyon the other day. I bet none of you. You just click because you are interested. If someone close to you really died yesterday, don't you think you might find out somewhere other than the buzz.

That's a hoot. I was expecting to read about a car going off the road or something since its offseason but this got a good chuckle!

Thanks for the effort,
