SLANDER EDITION FRIDAY



After a long week of work, what's more refreshing than a heaping plate of slander? If you find something, let us know! In the meantime, we offer you the following:

* WCCO's Rick Fuentes got more than an undercover story when he exposed Medina's rave scene 5 years ago: he got a steady drug hook-up from this guy:



Fuentes's dealer shows up like clockwork at the back door of 'CCO on Thursdays at 9:13 PM. He shirtlessly delivers $50 worth of Special K. The bigger secret is that Special K hasn't been manufactured since Pure Trance, Vol. 2 came out. So, much like how Folgers sometimes switches people's regular coffee with Folger's crystals, Rick's dealer has switched his usual Special K with crystal meth.

* Belinda Jensen also receives a peculiar weekly delivery as well: 7 gallons of cherry Kool-Aid. Nobody really knows why.

* Despite the fact that he is old enough to be her grandfather, Sid Hartman has been seen canoodling with Lindsay Lohan at the Block E Applebee's. For shame.


And so ends our week of picking on Rick Fuentes. Seriously, Rick, let's be friends again. Have a great weekend!!

Slanderazzi

After we published that undercover photo of WCCO's Rick Fuentes on Tuesday, we've had overwhelming requests to publish the following photo of Fuentes:



Apparently back in the year 2000, Fuentes and the WCCO team went to a rave in Medina to do an undercover investigation about kids doing drugs. Does this remind anybody else of that episode of Reno 911 where the cops dressed up in ridiculous outfits to go "undercover" to Burning Man? The bigger question is: who the hell sold drugs to RICK FUENTES? If you're out there, we want to know.

Tune in tomorrow for SLANDER EDITION FRIDAY!

Humpday Hotdish Hoedown



It is too damn hot outside to be offering any hotdish recipes, so today we decided to keep it simple and cold. We will have to credit our grandfather with this salad, but will re-title it so that it sounds jazzier.

Slanderous Salad

3 cucumbers, sliced and halved
1/2 lb green grapes, halved
balsamic vinegar

Mix cucumbers and grapes together, add balsamic to taste and chill to ensure proper blending of flavors. Pour yourself a vodka tonic and camp out by the AC.

Slanderazzi

Welcome to another week and another important moment in Slanderous Minneapolis history. Today we unveil a new segment, called "Slanderazzi." That's right, we've hit the street in order to find celebrities in their natural habitat. A reader with a keen eye sent in this picture of WCCO's Rick Fuentes (side note: if you do a Google search of his name and drop the "s" in Fuentes, you get links to a porn star. Coincidence??).



Apparently, Rick is unhappy with his WCCO wages and has taken to begging with the sign "Single Dad, Short on Rent." And he thought that the Oakleys would fool us. For shame. So, next time you see Rick on the street, give him some spare change and some tips on journalistic integrity.

If you have celebrity snapshots, send them our way: slanderousminneapolis@gmail.com

And if you're a celebrity, beware of the Slanderazzi.
