Spencer - "I need to get some chocolate milk."

I am guessing that the police took the complaint, wiped their asses with it and threw it away. They then released a statement saying that they were "looking into it," just to appease the pearl-clutchers.

What would or could the police do? The complaints were based on a comment made in the Big Brother house. Unless he was interviewed in the BB DR, which is highly unlikely, the police didn't even speak to him before releasing the above linked statement. I agree with ff.

 

I have laughed at jokes that were probably, let's say, insensitive to others. With all the comments made by the HGs this year, people seem very quick to jump on the "Something has to be done!" bandwagon. But, I think that's because of the repetitive slurs coming out of the house.

 

I don't think Spencer much cares about how he's perceived by America. I'd have to think he's clean up his mouth and quite with the pieces of TMI - I still shudder thinking about the bottle comment - when he's being filmed 24/7.

The best line is the first one where they talk about the volume of calls from the public as they describe a large group of people who just sit there and wait for something to happen so they can tell on them. Ugh. What a bunch of tattletale asses.

Actually, child porn is a big deal and I imagine there is a protocol they have to follow. I do not know the law there but I'm guessing the first step, if they are taking this seriously, would be to take Spencer's computer and check for child porn. That part of that, that has always scared me is there are always dumbasses who send you things you don't want sent to you. I do know that having child porn on your computer (even if you erase it) is punishable, depending on the context. So of course Spencer's employer is covering their ass and yes I bet there was a whole lot of people who complained, after all it's all over the internet and not a lot of people take child porn lightly. So who knows how high up this will go or how deeply investigated before they come to the point where they accept he was just kidding and a total ass. He's both lucky and unlucky, because he said it while it was being filmed. No matter how innocent he is, other than being an ass, this will follow him.

I agree with chrysana in that there's a bandwagon attitude this year. Were any of these comments said in isolation, it would have blown over with maybe a little speed bump (much like Dumbledore-gate). But due to the repetitive nature there's already a huge spotlight so any toe out of line, no matter what size, sets off the alarm.

 

This certainly doesn't excuse the comments (I'm looking at you, GinaMarie) but it does cause jokes like Spencer's to fall under greater scrutiny and thus receive more press than normal.

They wouldn't be able to search Spencer's computer or anything else without a search warrant. You need probable cause to get a judge to sign a search warrant. They have video evidence of the comment and it's clear to any reasonable person that he was joking. A bad joke is nowhere near probable cause.

Those poor people at Union Pacific having to deal with all these BB lunatics calling and complaining. I hope they're getting overtime for that shit.

That's why he's lucky to have a union job and to not have a job where he interacts with the public. I bet Union Pacific is sick of him and the complainers, they probably would fire him if they could. At least Aaryn's & GM's employers got to wash their hands of them. I wonder how Marilyn is taking all this, it has to be deflating.

I bet they're sick of complainers but who knows if they're sick of him. They've kept him employed, he doesn't deal with the public and who knows, maybe he does a good job. Maybe they don't care if he told a joke about child porn.

 

I don't know who Marilyn is but the way you guys have been speaking, I'm assuming wife or girlfriend. And I say the same thing for her that I said about Union Pacific...maybe that's how they act around each other and their friends. We don't know. People have different senses of humor and maybe he found someone he clicks with.

He said he has a girlfriend named Marilyn, the joke is that she's a blow up doll.

 

I would be curious to see what goes on in the house if Spencer wins the second HOH, if he wins the first one, I'm curious to see what he does with it. He and Howard were playing a whole different game than the rest, I really don't know who he would put up.

I'd put all five of my pennies on Amanda and GinaMarie. Or failing that if Amanda is gone or has veto, Helen and GinaMarie.

I'll confess that while I was reading the first part of his joke my recreational outrage was percolating but that finisher line about the basement turned it funny. I laughed.
