The last time a copy of SW was involved in the commission of a crime (or at least the last time we know of), it was as a sort of peekaboo device, used regularly by a chronic bus masturbator to cover his junk--because what's the fun without a little tease, and who couldn't use a quick cover-up when the 5-0 arrives?
But apparently that's not the only criminal use for our newsprint. An August 12th arson causing $100 in damages--one of four recent arsons in the Greenwood area--was started with--you guessed it--a copy of Seattle Weekly, thus confirming our lead among the coveted arsonist and public masturbator demographics. (For next year's Best of® issue: Best Paper With Which to Commit Arson or Public Masturbation.) So the next time you pick up a copy of SW, hold your head high, and know that you're in good company.
