My Boss Really, Really Wants Me to Tell You About Vanilla Ice's Kangaroo

Posted by Ned Lannamann on Thu, Jan 27, 2011 at 4:05 PM


Before he left the office for the day (ducking out early, I should add), my esteemed boss and Mercury editor Wm. Steven Humphrey forwarded me an email, adding:

This is for you, and if it is not mentioned on Blogtown, you will be killed then fired.

Since I would prefer to be neither of those things, here's the content of the email, a tip sent in by Blogtown reader Stu:

An interview with Vanilla Ice wouldn't normally be interesting, but skip down towards the end and you get this:

What’s your pet kangaroo called?
VANILLA ICE: Bucky Buckaroo. He’s a great guy. I’ve had him since he was a baby and now he’s 5ft 10in. He’s spoiled rotten — he has his own enclosure and a female pot-bellied pig in there who is his lover. Kangaroos will hump anything. I think the pig likes it. There’s also a goat in there who he grew up with but they’re just friends.



And Stu: Uh, thanks?
