QUIDNUNC: Quid’s back and tattling on the tweeted life of a city council spouse

743

Quidnunc, whose name comes from the Latin  “what now,” is out and about as often as possible  to bring you news overheard in elevators, rest rooms and spied in various e-mail boxes. 

QUID HAS HEARD the pathos will be at perihelion as news gets around that Quid is not only still undead, but Quid is back. Yes, Quid lives, much to the chagrin of government types, oafs and our dear intelligent readers. Thanks to the miracles of modern medicine, fine Colorado whiskey and some extra space in this lamentable rag, your humble affiant writes again.

AND SO, QUID HAS HEARD, that although A-Town and this sad-sack state desperately needs a Congresspersona Lauren Boebert Tweet Revenge Award, there is no need to search for the premier winner of that lamentable distinction. Dear readers, we have a D’ohbert winner, and it is Gregg Bergan. “Who” query all but Councilperson Francoise Bergan, cringing along with the words here? That’s right. The first-spouse of the Honorable Lawmaker in Southeast A-Town rips it up many, many times a day on Twitter, giving even Colorado’s own Queen of Mien a run for top-tweeted foul balls. Monsieur Bergan appeared to lay low until late, and now spends much of his 128-character treatises lamenting a lack of followers, save for Quid. Often the savvy ad exec offers Boebertian commentary that perhaps even she would leave un-posted, such as these  chef-d’œuvre: “I feel like if I had boobs I’d have a lot more followers. But that is a line I will not cross.”

Really? With so many lines crossed on this account, why stop at something so pedestrian?

Then there’s this Boebertonian jewel: “Are there zoos in Africa?”

Allow your faithful hack to chime in in advance of what was certain to be a future tweet: Yes, they do have zoos, and books and electricity. See: Google.

But showing that winky winky slam-one-slam all to the mat mentality, this plum appeared to be ripe recently: “A television network rejected one of my commercials because they said the Amish might be insulted by it. When they saw it on TV. Let that sink in.”

Sink appears to be the key word.

AND THAT’S ALL THE NEWS THAT FITS.

I am amused that you think you have stumbled upon something ominous here. In reality, it’s nothing more than an experiment in social media brand building — a test of content virality.

But thanks for putting it out there. Follow @gbergan on Twitter!

By the way, seeing as how the zoo joke flew way over your head, let me break it down: Wild animals are kept in zoos here so people can go see them. Africa has so many running freely, why would anyone pay to go to a zoo in Africa? What would they even keep there? House cats?

Were you trying to politicize this or race-bait? It’s astounding how you look for a message that’s not there.

Quid must have hit a nerve if you felt the need to respond, not once, but twice.

I will admit, I was compelled to explain comedy to the thinly veiled Dave Perry, as it must be frustrating to be devoid of a sense of humor.

Welcome back, “what now”. I didn’t really miss you because I never realized you had left but now remember I liked to read your sarcastic and stupid thoughts for fun reading. But, alas, you are no more aware of Aurora happenings than the entire twisted staff of the Sentinel.

Welcome back! Know that some of us appreciate the irreverence and that there is still someone who brings these hijinks to light.

And we hope that the Council Person does not share her husband’s self-admiration.
