More Arnold/Tookie Backlash
December 28, 2005
Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger had hoped to put the whole Tookie Williams, Austrian Hometown Stadium naming thingie behind him. In a statement released to the press this afternoon the Governor said, "I had hoped to put the whole Tookie Williams, Austrian Hometown Stadium naming thingie behind me, but it keeps coming Baaah-ck!"
After the Governor declined to spare the life of Nobel Prize Nominee and author of Children's books, Tookie "Frame Job" Williams, an uprising swelled across "America loving" Europe. Calls to have his name removed from a stadium in his home town soon followed.
In order to stem off the embarrassment of his hometown renaming a stadium once named for the famous movie star slash California governor, Schwarzenegger asked that his name be removed first.
Well now a Backlash has occured. The people of California have decided to rename Vienna Sausages...
wait for it...
