Good lord are some people dumb as a box of rocks. At least one person has ended up at this site searching "Travis Gruber", thought I was actually selling Official Travis Gruber merchandise and believes I am Travis. I hate to disappoint, but I'm older, fatter and infinitely better looking;) I have also been writing about being at sea for how long, now? I believe I've mentioned that I live in the Great White North. This does not mean Sacramento, people. I mean above the 45th parallel. I wish people would read a little further before condemning Travis for my filth.
It's sad to see how quickly people jump to conclusions and see what they want to see. This person believes Travis is the Anti-Christ and therefor started this website and persona months ago, in order to sell T-shirts, knowing a shoddy journalist would crucify him sometime in the future, with a drive-by article not worthy of a grocery store rag like the National Enquirer. Please. Anyway, this place would be a whole lot funnier if Travis was behind it.
The damn post was meant to be a humorous jab at what I felt was a malicious act by an unethical person and website/newspaper/magazine-whatever. It was meant to bring a small smile to someone who really needs one. I debated taking it down after my previous post was copied into comments on yet another copy/paste drive by article on Trav. It was used to slam him for selling merchandise in the wake of recent events. I wanted to pull it, but was persuaded to let it stand, though I am not pleased with the idea that it may cause Travis more headaches and that is the last thing the man needs more of at the moment.
Once again...Travis, you may crush my windpipe.
