Sounds like he had a little too much Captain in him.

Dog carcass in alley this morning, tire tread on burst stomach. This city is afraid of me. I have seen its true face.

Y'see, this is precisely what the Keene Act was supposed to stop. *Shakes fist at vigilante ho-savers*

"Navarre has a lengthy criminal record with various arrests for intoxication, burglary and escape from custody, according to online court records."

Say that reminds me, what's Henry Earl up to?

I saw a documentary on HoBO last night. Had a bunch of similar reprobates with various delusions... but was interesting to say the least.

What would your handle be if you were a super hero?

Navarre has a lengthy criminal record with various arrests for intoxication, burglary and escape from custody, according to online court records.

Intoxication: He was hit with fear toxin, you'd be intoxicated too after that

burglary: How else is he going to investigate the scene of the crime? Granted he's causing the crime while investigating it, but then he's also already solved it. Damn he's good

Escape from custody: DUH! That's what every vigilante crimefighter does, that's why they're vigilantes.

God bless you Captain Save-A-Ho, I sleep better at night knowing you're protecting us.

Isn't that name already used by William Jefferson? (President Save-A-Ho-For-Bubba)

That is one high mileage 34 year old. He looks like he's pushing 60.

It's headlines like this that makes me miss the Press-Citizen:

"Frozen yogurt business opening in Iowa City"

Isn't that just ADORABLE? Who needs the got damn Onion when you can do LOCAL MAN PURCHASES CATSUP with a straight face?

I suppose Gaseous Anomaly is different enough from that to avoid a lawsuit...

Captain Save-A-Ho? So if he gets a promotion from O-3 to O-4 he'll be Major Save-A-Ho? And the next promotion after that makes him Lieutenant Colonel Save-A-Ho, right?

My entire life has been predicated on a lie. :(

From the article comments...

I just want to know who posted this article on Fark.com!!! :)

That's like asking who crapped their pants at a church meeting. Nobody wants to admit it, because it's a terrible, debasing experience that no human being should have to live through.

Man, my state is really making that run for its own tag today, isn't it?

I think the hos need protection from him.
 
2011-08-09 02:15:25 PM  
It's a shame when childhood idols like Captain-Save-A-Ho disappoint. Who's left? Who are we going to look up to now?
 
2011-08-09 02:23:37 PM  
Who will the drunk women in the upcoming tailgates turn to in their hazy time of trouble. Surely Dr. Hurt-A-Ho will take advantage now that he is out of the picture

No, they just call it 'cream'.

Has anyone mentioned how old he looks for 34?

Heh. There's nothing like dropping the year of release into your songs to automatically make them sound dated.

Only the type Steve Martin endorsed.

*Slaps forehead*
Right, that has been a problem here in Iowa.

That, or he's the guy living under the I-80 overpasses near Coral Ridge Mall.

Or both.

There was a loosely connected bum-er, homeless people living in the steam tunnels under iowa city in the 1990s. they had to donate some of the pop cans they collected to one man. until someone got sick of it, killed him, and threw him in the iowa river.

yes, i see your chud but i'd still like to be king of the iowa city bum-er, homeless
 
2011-08-09 05:48:16 PM  
He's the hero Iowa City deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not the hero. He's a silent guardian, watchful protector. Captain Save-A-Ho.

Wow, that works on so many levels...graphically, literarily, AND topically (since the movie comes out this fall). John Carter was even a captain.

Kudos and geek cred to you, madam.

And everyone else....

Holy sh*t, those must've been 34 hard years ... Plus, you don't save hoes at the frickin mall, unless you're saving them money.

Holy hell. I'm 36 and that guy looks old enough to be my dad.
