It is symptomatic of the madness of having media spectacles with shoddy security and perhaps indicative of the lopsided nature of Seattle's Superb Owl victory. Apparently this nutlog didn't even buy a ticket, so for the price of public transit, ignorance reigns, and as a form of transgressive framing, even resembles BillO's interview with PBO, although like Howard Stern's Penis, its triviality is only equaled by its physical insignificance.
