More Fitz Happens Douchebaggery

This feud is just getting comical.

Background

Since humor seems to be a scarce commodity, let me set the record straight. I have nothing to do with, and really nothing against, Fitz Happens. From what I can tell from Google, he’s a DJ for KKWF the Wolf, a Seattle country music station.

Me? One of my nicknames is Fitz.

Last summer, a lot of Seattle buses had a large “Fitz Happens” advertisement. No graphics, no supporting text, no URL, nothing. I started getting lots of MMS messages and emails from friends asking what is the deal with “Fitz Happens”. I didn’t know. It sounded like a weird sentence (like “Stuff happens.”) rather than a person. But some quick Googling revealed the truth, which is basically what I stated at the beginning of this post.

This is where it gets interesting.

The Fake Fitz Happens

Sick of getting asked, “what is the deal with Fitz Happens?”, I wrote a blog post, farcically claiming to be behind the Fitz Happens advertisement. Hilarious, to be sure. (I am kidding, PR folks at Fitz Happens!). My friends got a laugh. Life moved on.

Or so I thought.

The Myspace Message

A few months passed, and I got an email from Myspace: “FItz [sic] has sent you a new message!” I was curious who “FItz” could be since I hadn’t checked Myspace in ages.

The message is quoted below:

Hi, Joe. Really? You’re responsible for FitzHappens? Interesting because I work with Fitz from Fitz in the Morning and I can assure you that this is really about him, not you. Please keep your delusions in check and stick to reality. We appreciate your immediate compliance. Thanks, Joe! Laura Manager Fitz Projects, LLC

I was on the floor laughing. I didn’t think it would be possible for someone to read my original post and take it seriously, but I was apparently wrong. I guess Laura chose to send me a Myspace message since it’s the only form of contact information on my main webpage.

So I wrote this post in reply. A few months passed and I assumed I was done with the matter. I was, again, wrong.

Comment:
your writing sucks

“your writing sucks”. Good one. I can’t really verify the authenticity of the sender, so I hope that it’s not really Fitz Happens, but if it is, please stop. It’s embarrassing.

Now the main question – should I approve the comment?
