At long last, America could be safe from LED's attached to circuit boards!

I met him a couple of times while working one summer with Boston Neighborhood Network News. He's funny, quick-witted, swears like a sailor, and had the richest tan you'll ever behold.

That guy does one lousy Menino impression.

About a year ago I was out for a few drinks with some friends from work, and the mayah was apparently having a fundraiser on the second floor of the bar. This was a Tuesday night (don't judge) and there weren't that many people at the bar so I could hear his "thank you" speech in the second floor without making out anything he was saying. The thing is, that would probably still be the case if I was standing right next to him.

And definitely a bad Menino impression.

And he's done vocals for a techno track.

He just lost my vote.

Ah good old Mumbles Menino. I am mad at him for the crap he's pulling with Boston Public Library (self link!).

I disagree. He doesn't have the timbre down, but he does the distinctive glottal vowels and the start-stop tempo very well.

a frankenstein who hates fire.

I think I'm gonna say that all weekend.

Been there, done that... At a tribute to a local Boston Music Scenester, Hizzonah was asked to speak, and the Acme Theatre put a screen up and projected subtitles... I wish I had video. It was a hoot.

Likes to muzzle freedom of expression too. FAIL.

One of the better Mumbles impersonators is a regular on Boston sports radio WEEI's "Whiner Line." Listen to the Whiney Awards nominations -- including one from the Mayor -- here. Thank you all for comin'!
