It was bad enough when real estate developer Ori Feibush started a real estate blog called Naked Philly and then hid his own conflict-of-interest-y involvement in it for months and months. It was even more annoying that he would answer emails as “Mr. Fox” and that the site’s motto was “We’ve got nothing to hide!” So, too, has it been consistently annoying that Feibush’s whole media game has followed down in this same tittering, tee-hee-ing, “Oh, little old ME?” manner.
That was one thing. Now, he’s in the process of gaming one of Jannie Blackwell‘s changes to Philly’s new zoning laws, which go live in two months, to turn Naked Philly into its own Registered Community Organization, which would be like an actual community organization, only far more annoying and possibly even not legal, given the fact that A DEVELOPER WITH A BLOG IS NOT A FUCKING COMMUNITY ORGANIZATION.
Now, to be fair, Feibush has done a lot of good over in G-Ho/Point Breeze, whatever his motivations are, and whatever his overachiever bulldozer style may be. But if we may continue the thread from earlier today of putting the situation into a handy quote from The Big Lebowski, please allow us to express our exasperation with this guy via the following quote from The Dude:
God damn you Walter! You fuckin’ asshole! Everything’s a fuckin’ travesty with you, man! And what was all that shit about Vietnam? What the FUCK, has anything got to do with Vietnam? What the fuck are you talking about?
Or, perhaps better put: Smokey, this is not ‘Nam. There are rules.
Update: We have just been informed that this was Feibush’s attempt at “Colbert-esque” satire. We’re not sure what is the bigger takeaway here — the fact that we got taken in by it, or the reality that no one would put it past the guy. Actually, they both suck. Onward!
