What’s your summer dream job? Beach lifeguard? Bat boy at Yankee Stadium? Mr. Met?
How about an 8-foot replica of a human turd?
He’s BAAAAACK… and he… could be you… It’s the smelliest chance of a lifetime… Mr. Floatie, the tall, dark and smelly Rye provocateur, is coming back.
Ray Tartaglione, successful tow truck firm operator, Hen Island resident and Heal the Harbor agitator, is looking for one proud soul to wear the costume of Mr. Floatie. "Mayor French and the City Council are giving lip service to me and everyone else in Rye that is concerned with the Sewage, potable water and mosquito infestations violations on Hen Island," Tartaglione told MyRye.com. I will "send you a few pictures of the new even more improved Floatiemobile draped with our new, Mayor Doug French ad campaign titled "Some People Don't Care Where They Dump Their Sewage"."
No word yet on what this shi**y job pays, but here is the listing from Craigslist:
"We’re looking for two upbeat and outgoing people to represent HEALtheHARBOR.com. One willing to wear a mascot costume (Mr. Floatie) and one to escort the same. Vehicle and fuel included.
Your job: meeting new people, handing out some facts, educate local residents and shoppers about a Mayor and City Council that avoids enforcing local environmental and health codes and laws.
Where and When: Downtown Rye and at City Hall. Every other Wednesday 6PM-11PM. Summer Hours, (June July and August) once per month. Every Sunday, 11AM-7PM some Saturdays and other occasional events.
You must be at least 21, have a clean license, an open mind, be able to discuss sewage and health related issues and not get embarrassed or intimidated easily. Will train, salary commensurate with experience and ability."
