Local Dumbfuck On Jumbotron Waits Until Last Damn Second To Wave

HOUSTON—Frustrating all those in attendance at Thursday night’s game between the Oakland Athletics and the Houston Astros, a local dumbfuck shown on the stadium’s Jumbotron decided to wait until the last goddamn second before waving to the camera, sources confirmed today.

“Oh, you have got to be kidding me,” said ticket holder Scott McDowell upon spotting the unidentified idiot featured on the large high-definition monitor who was completely fucking oblivious to the fact that he had suddenly become the focal point of the entire stadium.

“You only get a few seconds on the Jumbotron and you’re going to spend them staring off into space as if you don’t have a care in the world? Pull your head out of your ass, buddy.”

“This is fucking unbelievable,” McDowell added.

(WHAT'S THE STORY) MORNING GLORY by OASIS

PAUL'S BOUTIQUE by THE BEASTIE BOYS
A clothing store in 1989 at what is now the more gentrified corner of Ludlow and Rivington on New York's Lower East Side.


THE MARSHALL MATHERS LP by EMINEM

LATE FOR THE SKY by JACKSON BROWNE
A surrealist view of one of the many classy houses around Hancock Park in Los Angeles, 1974: Bob Seldemann spliced the house with another sky for a result that resembles a Magritte painting.


MOVING PICTURES by RUSH

ABBEY ROAD by THE BEATLES
So famous is the cover for the Fab Four's last studio album in 1969 that Westminster council in London have to repaint the wall next to the crossing every three months to cover over fans' graffiti, and the street signs are mounted high above the ground to prevent them from being stolen.
