Goodbye, cruel world: Farewell from the Raptured remains of the Boston Phoenix

-- Clif Garboden

Who'd a thunk it? The Phoenix's degenerate heathens were pretty damn sure they weren't gonna get raptured -- but maybe G-d gives more of a shit about fighting the good fight than any of those priests thought. Either that, or Faraone cut one hell of a deal with the guys on that bus. All I can tell you is, well, one second they were here and one second they wasn't. Clothes: folded in a neat pile by Jesus, just like those Family Radio crackpots told us. And me? Well, I always told these no-good son of a cocksuckers I'd be looking down at them from on high when the day was done. And here I am, empty newsroom, with an in-box full of photos and . . . what was it Johnny Thunders useta say? You can't put your arms around a memory.

I know what you're thinkng: I musta done something godawful to be left down here while these douchebags get Hoovered into the great beyond. Well, I don't care what the fuck you or Jesus or anyone says: I still think I'm goin' ta heaven -- but not even God Himself is a stupid enough bastard to take me before the Bruins win one more motherfucking Stanley Cup. YESSAH! Love, Pat D.
