Schrammie Bomb!

posted by on May 25 at 14:33 PM

The Department of Corrections headquarters were evacuated after they received a suspicious, handwritten, stained package containing…a Schrammie.

From the PI:

The package came from KOMO-TV headquarters, the station confirmed. It was addressed to the Department of Corrections secretary, Harold Clarke, Washington State Patrol Sgt. Ted DeHart said.

The Washington State Patrol dispatched its bomb squad. A bomb technician opened it and discovered the bobble-head doll. A State Patrol trooper has called Schram to discuss the incident.

Schram sends the dolls to people who he thinks have done something dubious.

Schram was taking the blunder in stride, saying that he was partially amused, embarrassed and perplexed.

“I am big on taking responsibility. I didn’t mail it. But it’s my ‘Schrammie,’ ” he said.

(Personal note to Ken: Feel free to send us a Schrammie any time. Bradley Steinbacher is your biggest fan!)


Our very own Charles Mudede and his partner in crime Robinson Devor received a Schrammie back in July for making a little gay-agenda promoting, horse-fuck-athon snuff film (currently making the rounds at Cannes) called Zoo.

I’d never seen a Schrammie on Charles’ incredibly cluttered desk, so I asked him where his Schrammie was. “I never got it,” he says.

For not following through on his promise to send Rob and Charles their Schrammie, Ken has become the first official recipient of The Stranger’s Dingleberry Award.

Shame on you Ken, shame on you.

(Double personal note to Ken: Your award is on its way. Really.)

Everything is a bomb now. OR, a bong.

Everybody who is not Republican knows the difference between a bong and an RPG. One of them kills people. One does not. Guess which one the Republicans smoke all of the time. Note: No question mark.

Am I the only person who feels the Shrammie is a little too flattering a likeness of K Schram?

I think the bobble-head folks just used an old template for the late Wayne Cody's head, repainted it, and stuck it on a new body.

It looks like a Kelsey Grammer bobblehead.

I want a Schrammie! I am so jealous. For anyone who ran into Schramm in the early 90s, when he was the cheesiest cheesedog lowest-common-denominator talking bobblehead, 70s used-car salesman shag toupee ill-fitting suited classic mass-media moron, his new curmudgeonly Andy Rooney impersonation is an amazing self re-creation.

I wasted millions of dollars of taxpayers' money on a dream too great for Seattle (the monorail); I told the whole city to kiss my grits and moved to Mexico; I ran out of money and settled for Portland; I made a film bastardization of the works of H.P. Lovecraft that uses our grand northwest scenery and the stunning vision of Tori Spelling in a zookeeper outfit in order to make an obscure point about global warming; I shamelessly use the Slog as a vehicle of self-promotion to save myself from a future as a fry cook - I WANT MY SCHRAMMIE!!!!

Why isn't he in Gitmo with Karl Rove and other terrorists?

Sometimes the best Schrammies are the ones we give ourselves, Grant.
