One of the recent developments here in Nutjob Hills is that a fairly recent arrival has evidently decided that he is going to out-help the legendary Mr. Helpful.  I have not yet had the opportunity to speak with Mr. Helpful about this but after this last incident I think I’m going to have to do something that I very rarely do on purpose.

I’m going to ask for his help.

Specifically I’m going to tell him about this would-be apprentice and the disasters that he’s causing in the name of “helping”.  This guy is so bad that he actually makes Mr. Helpful seem like a perfectly reasonable person… and that’s saying something!

The latest example involves him approaching several overweight people in town, myself included (which is how I know about this) and trying to convince them to buy his personal line of fat burning products as part of a weight loss program.  Normally this might be considered a bit opportunistic but fairly harmless.  Not in this case.

Oh the things he’s selling will burn fat alright.  The problem is that they’ll burn a whole lot of other things as well.  I mean, you like having actual bones don’t you?  One of his “fat burners” actually dissolves calcium at an alarming rate.

I have a feeling that this is going to be a LONG week.
