Things are going from stupid to ridiculous for Stephon Marbury. Not only has he been banished by his team but now he’s getting punked by the Swiss who are known for their humor.
Several people claiming to be Swiss bankers with connections to Real Madrid attempted to recruit Starbury to play for the Spanish giants. It turns out they were fakers. He didn’t find this out before he returned calls and emails on Saturday. Now he’s considering turning their information over to the law.
The pranksters also contacted the Post, AP and the New York Times to promote Starbury’s imminent move to Real and Real president Ramon Calderon’s contacts with Donnie Walsh. Too bad none of it was true. Starbury playing in Spain would make for great reality TV. We might get a Kwame Brown moment where he blows up when he can’t get Spanish Fly at a restaurant.

Hey there, dog shit boy. Flying through the air so fancy free. It’s hard thing to get your mind around complex shit like abstract math. It’s also hard to keep complex shit in once it gets the mind to cut loose. Just ask the Swiss.
What would you say about a shit so strong that it could cut off electricity? Impossible you say? Artist Paul McCarthy would beg to differ. An inflatable dog shit sculpture created by McCarthy broke free of its moorings and floated away from a Swiss museum. It managed to break a greenhouse window and take down power lines before falling back to earth … on the lawn of a children’s home.
“…The museum was not sure if Complex Shit would be put back on display.”
The deuce is reportedly as large as a house. I’ll never describe any of my masterpieces that way again. A security system was supposed to deflate the crap in case of a storm but it malfunctioned and allowed the shit to float away. Sometimes the shit just got to be free like Minnie Ripperton.

“If it wasn’t for us, you’d all be speaking German! Singing ‘Deutschland, Deutschland über alles…’”
The Swiss have always claimed to be neutral in international affairs and banking. They try to assuage our suspicions by inundating us with images of that slutty, foul temptress Swiss Miss. However they’ve finally overplayed their hand.
They may have gone a bit far in showing their loyalty by bringing back the good old days of the Third Reich. A Swiss television station ran the subtitles to the Nazi Germany anthem while playing the current German anthem before Germany played Austria in the Euro.
“It is an inexcusable error,” said an employee in charge of the subtitling service for the satation, SRG, though he added it was the fault of two young editors.
Perhaps they were just following orders, Herr Employee.
