Well, yes ... but, like, who isn't, man?

That's impossible. No one can give more than one hundred percent. By definition that is the most anyone can give.

If my math is correct, Wade Boggs being 1,000,000% not a racist allows 10,001 people to be 100% racist, or 40,004 people to be 25% racist. That's far more damage to society than any individual racist could ever cause by himself. Shame on you, Wade Boggs.

If you ignore the millions of chickens he has killed. This anti-chickenist needs a few lessons in human-animal coexistence.

The commenters over at World Net Daily salute your sacrifice, Wade!

It's even worse than that. He actually said "100 million percent." I think that gets him up to being as bad as Hitler.

Wade Boggs: Oil Can Boyd is a delusional drug addict
Everybody else on the planet: You're just now figuring that out?

And you, Sir, are a chicken addict!! Which is worse, I ask you??? Well, drug addict is much much worse - but it's hard to call the chicken addict racist.

#2 is pretty funny.

That's because Bogg's has only known Oil Can the Elder, not Lord Oil Can the Boyd.

The "Oil Can" nickname comes from Boyd's beer-drinking days in Mississippi, where beer is referred to as "oil". Strangely enough, "Oil Can" would be an appropriate nickname for Boggs!

Oil Can Boggs? Hmm. I like it. Sounds elegant.

A more entertaining headline would have been, "Guy who admits to pounding 26 beers on one flight calls someone else an addict."
