Should be an easy read. All the chapters will be short.

So it WAS Amish midget porn after all.

He can't really be Amish, or the other Amish would have to shun him.

Or he's been on the world's longest rumshpringa.

His sex tape was garish.

Too much rum, not enough springa.

I shall get an itty-bitty horse and an itty-bitty buggy so he can clip-clop around the lair - delivering small pats of apple butter and milk in itty-bitty bottles to my minions!

Well, he's a little Amish.

That was my first thought, once you leave the church and are shunned, you do not go back for visits.
But shunning varies in severity from community to community. Some Mennonite sects are more strict than some new order Amish sects.
So I suppose it's possible depending on how "old order" his community is.

True enough. He just makes it sound as though he's talking about Amish culture in general.

They aren't shunning him, they just didn't notice him down there.

Actually, if he never made his adult vows to the church, he can come and visit and is not shunned for his decisions to "live like the English."

He sounds very fond and respectful of his Amish upbringing. Too bad I have absolutely no interest in his little book.
 
2009-11-05 11:30:14 AM  
Well DUH. His name's Troyer. First time I heard his name I figured there was an Amish connection. There's like 4 or 5 definitively Amish names and Troyer is one of them.

/just down the road from Holmes County, Ohio - home of Troyer's Trail Bologna
//no, it has nothing to do with "road apples"
 
2009-11-05 11:30:52 AM  
Man, the best selling point they could come up with is that he reveals he's Amish. Whogivesashiat.
 
2009-11-05 11:33:11 AM  
I wonder if they'll release his book on the Kindle.

There's a "Jewel Troyer Yoder"... on facebook... and she looks Asian.

I can believe that they might have a midget-exception to the shunning rule.

In Michigan, huh? I wonder if he was raised out in the Colon area (yes, that's what it's named. Used to have a stage magician shop in it, not sure if it still does.) Huge amish community. When I was in grade school, we had one of those trade-student field trips. We had a couple not-quite-Amish kids stay with us and I ended up right on the edge of some Amish farms myself in return.

/cool story, sis

I heard he'd been raised Amish.

There's quite a few Amish dwarves. It's genetic, you see. Shallow pool and whatnot.

Just picked up some Troyer Amish Salsa like 2 weeks ago at a rest stop in Minnesota.

I imagine that was easy...he can't weigh much.

Met him once. Less than enthralled.

//can one haz Amish food mail order over the internet?
///didnt think so.

Came up short of your expectations, then.

Wait, I thought he uses an electric scooter device to move about?

I am very confused about this. This blows my mind. I would never ever in a million years think he was amish.

I thought they were talking about that guy who used to be married to Linda Lovelace, so I read the article. Fooled me.
