Play-by-play announcer admits drunken napkin eating

Most everyone’s done something they’re ashamed of.

These grits sure are light and fluffy.

Unfortunately for Oregon State’s play-by-play announcer, his shameful moment was captured on video and plastered all over the Internet.

Mike Parker admitted to being the drunk man trying to eat a napkin at Denny’s.

Our sister TV station in Seattle has the video.

“It’s embarrassing, it’s shameful, it’s humiliating,” said Parker.

The video, which as been online for three months, is also funny and sad.

Parker said he would seek help for alcoholism. The university said it would “monitor his treatment.”

Who hasn’t at one time tried to eat a Denny’s napkin? They offer more nutrition than the gand Slam™ breakfast.

I eat Denny’s naplins all the time. What’s the problem? Are you people crazy? If you have not tried it then don’t be so snotty about it! I’m about fed up with people being judgemental about things they have no first hand knowledge about. You should try it yourself and then put your opinion out there.

Napkins are an excellent source of fiber, as are table cloths, wet wipes and artificial flower arrangements. Just order a glass of water to wash it all down and, voila, free lunch!
