Unemployed Asheville man spends snow day like everyday smoking pot and watching Netflix

ASHEVILLE- Even a snow day can’t screw up Jerry Morgan’s daily routine.   Mr. Morgan spent yesterday’s snow day doing what he does every day smoking pot and searching Netflix for shows to watch.   “Snow days can create chaos for some folks,” said Morgan.   “For me, I made life choices a long time ago that created the chaos in my life.”   Morgan a 24-year-old unemployed man, who lives in his parents’ basement in North Asheville, explains how the snow day impacted him.   “The snow day was pretty good actually, because it forced my mom to stock up on groceries,” said Morgan.   “Plenty of munchies if you know what I’m saying. It got pretty cold in the basement but I rode it out by watching Wings on Netflix. I guess yesterday could have been better if House of Cards was already released, but there’s always today for that.”   Morgan spends the first hour of every day applying to the minimum wage server jobs available in Asheville and then spends the rest of each day smoking pot and watching Netflix.   “I guess this is not what I imagined when I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in philosophy,” said Morgan.   “I do spend a lot of time thinking about what it means to be a member of the 4.8 percent that is unemployed in Buncombe County. But philosophy taught me a lot about perspective and boy can a bowl and a Breaking Bad marathon really change your mind about your own...

Asheville atheist snowman pleads for God as sunrays scorch icy flesh

ASHEVILLE- Abe the snowman a life long atheist has always questioned the existence of God, because he thought how could any creator be so cruel as to create life without legs and thus imprison Abe to staring at a West Asheville bungalow overran by cats and defined by an intense urine smell.   But if Abe the snowman had been blessed with knees, he would certainly be on them right now begging God for salvation.   West Asheville neighbors were alarmed early Friday to find their neighbor Abe the snowman screaming in agony.   “It was unreal, Abe was sweating profusely and crying out in pain,” said Nancy Withers, a West Asheville resident.   “It was like that scene in Wizard of Oz. Abe was just screaming ‘I’m melting, I’m melting.’ I was surprised to see it, because Abe was always such a cool, calm, and collective guy.”   As the midmorning sunrays beat down on Abe’s icy flesh, Abe began to cry out to God for help.   “Why God? Why me?” Abe pleaded.   “What did I do to deserve this? Was it the corncob pipe? A neighborhood kid stuck it in my mouth and I had no choice in the matter.”   Abe the snowman slowly melted away as the day wore on.   “Abe was the size of Chris Christie, now he looks like a stick figure,” said Withers.   “I would feed him, but I have no idea what a snowman eats. I tried feeding him soup, but that just made him melt faster. Only person I know that when he eats he loses weight.”   Abe has requested a preacher to read him his last rites as he feels his death is imminent.   “I’m not sure if God is real or not, but I’m hedging my bets by asking God for forgiveness,” said Abe.   “Hopefully my grandfather Frosty will meet me at the gates and hopefully it’s the pearly gates, because if it is hell, we will both be screwed. An eternity in a perpetual liquid state does sound like...

Coworker suspected of buying her own Valentine flowers really has boyfriend

ASHEVILLE- The snowpocalypse has everybody in Asheville feeling cold this week.   But employees at a local medical sales supply company feel cold year round because they have deal with their coworker ‘Bitchy’ Vicky 365 days a year.   That is why when ‘Bitchy’ Vicky received Valentine flowers midmorning from the delivery guy her coworkers were left speechless.   “How could anyone love her?” said Monica, a sales associate who spends most her days sharing cat videos on Facebook.   “She always so pushy and overbearing.”   Monica’s overweight cubicle pal Shelia, who religiously listens to Jillian Michaels podcast about weight loss and nervously chews on Girl Scout Thin Mints, had her own theory about ‘Bitchy’ Vicky’s Valentine delivery.   “I bet she bought them for herself,” said Shelia.   “No one and I mean no one could love that cold hearted woman. You remember Monica, when we had to spend a whole day with ‘Bitchy’ Vicky once during that team building seminar our boss made us attend? Ugh what a long day that was.”   Unbeknownst to Shelia and Monica, ‘Bitchy’ Vicky does indeed has a boyfriend, who also happens to be the CEO of the company they work for, which mean ‘Bitchy’ Vicky will soon be their boss.   “How embarrassing, who buys themselves flowers?” said Monica.   “Hey John did you know ‘Bitchy’ Vicky bought herself flowers for Valentine’s Day?”   John pretends that he didn’t hear Monica as he plays Angry Bird on his iPhone and wonders why just because he is the only gay guy at the office that all his female coworkers thinks he wants to hear their bullshit...
