ASHEVILLE- A new Fox News/Citizen Thymes poll reveals only a small number of Asheville residents agree with Asheville City Council member Cecil Bothwell’s claim that fellow Council member Marc Hunt makes him want to puke.
Fox News/Citizen Thymes took a random scientific and religious poll of 1,000 Asheville residents showing them a picture of Council member Marc Hunt’s face and whether the picture gave them the urge to vomit. Only 10 percent of respondents had the urge to puke after seeing Hunt’s face, while 80 percent of respondents had no idea who Hunt was.
“Who is that? Is he a professional wrestler?” asked Asheville resident Tom White.
“I could see how that cheese grin could make some people want to vomit, but I have a pretty strong stomach.”
The Citizen Times, the Citizen Thymes’ little sister publication, reported on an email Bothwell sent to Hunt in September following the City Council’s approval of the McKibbon Hotel Group’s proposal to build a hotel on Haywood Street near the Basilica of St. Lawrence. In the email Bothwell communicated to Hunt, “You make me want to puke.”
Asheville resident Becky Riggs agrees that the sight of Hunt makes her want to vomit.
“Oh God, don’t ask questions too loudly, yes the guy in the picture makes me want to vomit,” said Riggs.
“Everything makes me want to vomit right now. I think I had too much to drink last night. I’m never drinking again. Do you have any Advil?”
The next Asheville City Council meeting will be Tuesday, January 22. The Citizen Thymes will have a reporter present to see if Bothwell actually vomits at the sight of Hunt.
An anonymous source says there will be a vomit bucket on hand at the meeting if Bothwell does blow chunks.
