Emailing the “Texas Hammer” to Solve Society’s Problems

Sometimes I feel like there’s just way too much going on in the world. Some of it’s really bad. Some of it’s really good. And a lot of the time it’s somewhere in-between and we all have to argue and became totally enraged over how other people live their lives.

On days like these I often wish there was someone who I could hire to serve justice and solve all of our problems. Someone who could help all the people who get criticized by the media and millions of people on Twitter. It could be as simple as calling or e-mailing him, explaining your problem and then paying him money to solve it for you.

Well, this commercial just came on my television and it’s the greatest thing I’ve ever seen in my life:

I know that the commercial says you’re supposed to hire him if you’ve been in a truck accident, but maybe “hurt by big truck” is just a metaphor for being wronged by the national media. Maybe Jim Adler the “Texas Hammer” is just the guy to solve society’s problems.

So I decided to do an experiment. I decided to take a few of the biggest news stories from the past five days and email Adler pretending to be a key figure from each story and ask for his help. Adler & Associates has it’s own website (it’s awesome by the way, there’s lots of fire and he’s screaming and holding a slede hammer) and it has a section for you to have your case  be reviewed for free to see if Adler will take it on. Perfect.

Here are the issues that I covered (click each headline for link to story):

Marcus Smart Shoves Fan Who Screamed At Him.

Quick truck question: Is it big enough to store giraffes if they are lying down? I have 5 or 6 giraffes that are…uhh…sleeping.

There will be a gay player in the NFL soon. I don’t need any money, but I want you to make sure I get my own shower with four closed off doors.

From here on out I want my showers just like my mind: narrow and closed off.

If Bud Selig thinks this is over he’s DEAD wrong. Can you hit him with your truck?

P.S. Are your lawyer skills decreasing with your age? I know a guy who can give you stuff to stay sharp if you’re ok with needles.

Can you stop yelling at people? We’re trying to create a world where we can talk about issues that help the greater good. 

You screaming at people with sledge hammers and giant trucks and fire doesn’t help. It makes people think that’s how we resolve conflict, through complete insanity. 

Also, I found Arby’s meat in my Arby’s sandwich. It was gross. How much you think I could get in court, ballpark?

And now we play the waiting game…
