'Scuse Me!

Lordy sakes, Michael Haynes, you shore ain't bein' very neighborly goin' on 'bout us Knoxville suburbunoids crowdin' downtown on weekends lookin' for a leetle fun 'n' kulture. I thought all you city folks would 'preciate the extry business from all us rowdy barbarian outland taxpayers who done paid for all yore dang street repairs. Well heck, 'scuse me! I guess from now on, I'll just leave all that hubbub to you towny snots so you'll pick up a tad more elbow room down at the bar. At least I won't be puttin' up with the chocked parkin' lots, hippies 'n' beatniks hoppin' around, them lost Yankee tourists shufflin' all over lookin' for a toilet, and sidewalk dawgshit. I'll be spendin' my time 'n' money closer to home since, with your attitude, Gay Street could be goin' bust soon. Again.

P.S.: Mister Mike should be awarded the Bizarro Earth Anti-Key to the City as downtown's not-so-goodwill ambassador and arrogant finick. Country mouse vs. city rat? So there.
