Kenny's coasters!

Kenny's coasters!

Now I know what you’re thinking! That title must be referring to a new alternative music group from the west coast. Nothing could be further from the truth. But trust me, by the time we’re done here, you’ll wish it did!
Though nothing could top his “buck fifty to pick up your dead father” quote printed in yesterday’s Ledger-Sentinel, Kendall County Coroner Ken Toftoy has more than one slogan up his sleeve.  And here’s the latest:

Apparently these coasters are popping up in bars all over Oswego which is a good thing, because you probably oughtta be drunk to truly appreciate them. I’m not sure if it’s supposed to be a death threat or if Ken simply can’t draw a human being very well.
Now, we know Ken has a way with words, but who knew he was a poet too? Perhaps he could branch out into napkins that read, “There once was a coroner from Nantucket…” But we should probably stop there because, after all, this is a family blog.
So here’s my thought. Having taken the time to fully appreciate the effect of this campaign coaster as well as yesterday’s quote, I think it’s time to put Mr. Toftoy’s name in the running for a National Organization of Women “Sensitive Man of the Year Award.”
Personally, I think he’s a lock.
Please understand, I have no dog in the Kendall County Coroners race, I still think Ken is going to win, and I actually like the guy. But no columnist worth his salt could pass up this kind of material. Please keep it coming!
