Halp a Fraind of Los Marcos! Apr 26, 2010

A carrier pigeon from Los Marcostan just landed on my window sill with a message and a live fire cracker attached. Knowing the pigeon’s life was at risk, I quickly read the message:

EL CHOMBO – a good friend and possible dopplergager for EL MALO – was found himself in bad askident on Thurday night. In his own words, he say

“I woke up on the pavement, spitting out teeth and blood after clearly being unconscious for an undetermined period of time….I think I may have been sideswiped by a livery car. I woke up alone and injured….poured peroxide on my face….found my teeth on the ground just by simply following the blood trail….p.s. I had a helmet on!”

Our brother is damaged and he is goig to need you for helping. Please donate money through is Paypal RIGHT NOW.

At the end of the note it said, THIS MESAJE WILL SELF DESTRUCKT Quickly I threw the pigeon to the street where it exploded into candy.

To donate to the HALP CHOMBO FUNDZ, check out the Los Marcos Polo Site.

    Chambo is one hell of a guy. Met him at bike polo spring break after he and others made the trip from NYC all the way to FL. A guy that loves bikes and the people associated with them. Excellent guy to party with and play polo with. Hope he makes a speedy recovery and gets all the love and help he deserves.

    not a real 7-Eleven, a respray. It is a Corsa Extra though with a number hanger.

    Alex, you talking about the pigeon? Well, it’s on my front porch now, in a million pieces.

    Chombo’s getting better, the donations are helping. Keep em coming guys! He needs new teeth.

    Doubters really?
    I’m sorry you feel that way, but if you know Chombo, Faking this is NOT what he’s about.
    I hope the polo family can help you out.

    I think they’re talking about the carrier
    pigeon not chombos accident

    The accident did happen, but I’m not so sure chombo wants this sort of attention. I was chillin with him last night and he was in good spirits (also drunk) and taking all this like a champ. If he wants help he’ll ask for it.
