City Slang: Black Jake & the Carnies record ode to Ypsilanti Poopslider

Posted By on Mon, May 12, 2014 at 10:18 AM

Ypsilanti punk-grass band Black Jake & the Carnies has recorded a song about the Mystery Pooper that has been terrorizing a play park.

Not to be taken too seriously, the band says, “For immediate... er uh... "release"... it's POOPSLIDER! Installment #1 of our new Quick&Dirty Garage Singles, Poopslider is the epic barn-burning vengeance rant against the infamous, National-News-making Ypsilanti Mystery Pooper. Always quick to capitalize on our kids' coming into contact with human feces at our local park, Black Jake & the Carnies recorded this song in Billy the Kingpin LaLonde's garage on Thursday night and dropped the single two days later. Not yet satisfied, we strained a little harder and squeezed out a Quick&Dirty video a day after that! I tell ya, coffee really gets ya goin'!

"While the Mystery Pooper has only now made the headlines, we've been dealing with this for years! Prospect Park is our local park, and he's struck so often that we'd taken to calling it 'Poopslide Park.' Every time we take our kids there, we make sure to check all the slides first... and if I can give any visitors some advice, sometimes the Mystery Pooper hides it under the mulch -- the shiny green flies are the giveaway. We've got to come together to protect our kids! The Poopslider's reign of funny-but-not-funny-when-it-happens-to-your-kid bio-terror must end!!!" -- Black Jake

Apparently, it’s impossible to talk about this issue without inadvertently stumbling on a butt-load of puns.
