Lenny the Grinder says, “There’s Money in Masks!”

(Orig. published May 5, 2020)

It’s a niche industry.

Gainful employment is hard to come by when you’re forced to make a living on a sidewalk. It’s a fact of life for Lenny, an organ grinder whose prospects improved when he recently landed temp work with the R.I. state police as a golf course monitor.

“I hunted down New Yorkers fleeing COVID-19 by driving to Rhode Island,” says Lenny. “The pay was good and you feel really proud helping people by keeping these dangerous defectors off the greens.”

The work slackened, however, as New Yorkers caught on and fled south. “It happens,” says Lenny. “You just have to go with the flow.”

Lenny’s latest entrepreneurial effort has been to knit and sew masks for a niche market. “My specialty is masks for big-nosed customers.”

Lenny got the idea from his own personal experience with protective facial gear. “Masks kept popping off my face,” he explains. “The fit was never right. I’d put on a mask and get maybe two wearings. Off they’d fly. I mean, little kids would laugh at me.”

A nose for opportunity.

The experience led Lenny to explore alternate designs. He developed a few prototypes based on medieval plague masks and primitive headgear, making them available for sale at a favorite sidewalk in Bridgeport.

“People would stop and say, ‘Oh, I know someone who could use a mask with more room in the nose,’ and buy one. Before long, I had a following.” Lenny says they’ve sold “like hotcakes” in certain parts of town with organized crime associations.

Lenny has named his small business “Big Hook,” and says that he is open to offers from venture capitalists who would like to develop the line and distribute it globally.

“With any luck, we’re going to be wearing masks for a long, long time,” says Lenny. “You got to think ahead. I mean, there are a lot of people like me with big honking noses. They deserve a mask that fits.”

    Kudos to the forever enterprising Lenny who reports from Bridgeport that his new business is gathering momentum. Requests are pouring in for masks that also cover the traditional beard in addition to the rather awkward shaped noses. Lenny is excited to cooperate with rabbis and even goyim sporting thick facial growth. The new masks will be priced according to size. Lenny claims his new product should take off like a cannonball since the coronavirus is especially fond of hairy lairs.

    Ha-ha. Lenny is a hoot. Or, should I say, a snoot!

    Bob, May 8, 2020 at 6:09 PM

    You guys aren’t even trying to hide your antisemitism are you?

    Alison May 8, 2020 at 7:07 PM

    For heaven’s sake. It’s satire. And I think the image is of a standard troll. Really, trolls (not Jews) are the point: Lenny is the #1 Troll of the universe!
    Bob, May 8, 2020 at 8:12 PM

    Never heard of the hooked nose stereotype to describe Jewish persons? The blog author names the fake Pozner business, “big Hook?”

    “THE COURT: All right. Based on the testimony
    you provided to me, I’m going to make a finding of fact
    that you shared the deposition transcript of Leonard
    Pozner for the purposes of seeking legal advice and that
    legal advice from a person not authorized to practice law
    in Wisconsin.
    Now, that’s not a crime for you in Wisconsin, Dr. Fetzer, but having made that finding, based on your sworn testimony, that is a problem for Ms. Maynard, who in this Court’s opinion continues to present herself as an attorney in the practicing of law.”


    Alison May 8, 2020 at 8:21 PM

    Hi, Lenny–glad you dropped by. As for the judge you bought in your case against Fetzer, he’s not only way out of line making pronouncements purporting to affect a nonparty, he’s wrong. I have not presented myself as an attorney in the practicing of law–ever–since my wrongful suspension in 2009.
    Alison May 8, 2020 at 8:27 PM

    I would add that we also refer to you Sandy Hook hoaxsters as “Hookers.” See, e.g., my blog post entitled “Sandy Hookers” from June 4, 2014.
    Bob, May 8, 2020 at 8:33 PM

    I’m not Lenny, that’s your paranoia showing.
    Alison, May 9, 2020 at 5:21 AM

    You are in possession of a transcript that only Lenny or his shyster lawyers have. But I guess you could be Charles Frye, who lives in a trailer in Stockton, a/k/a C.W. Wade, a/k/a Michael Norton, a/k/a Michael Flagg, and probably other aliases; but you got the transcript from Pozeur.
    Bob, May 9, 2020 at 9:40 AM

    It’s on a website, I linked it. Don’t know who put it there, but it’s there for anyone to see.


    Cinderella Broom, May 8, 2020 at 7:18 PM

    What are you referring to, Bob? Jewish and Arab men don’t have a monopoly on large noses. The article makes reference to organized crime types buying Lenny’s masks. And trolls have big noses, too. If the mask fits, wear it. Lenny would be delighted to sell you one.
    Cinderella Broom, May 8, 2020 at 8:45 PM

    This satirical article is about a street musician named Lenny the Grinder. The word “Jew” never appears in it. “Big Hook” isn’t an epithet to my knowledge. A big nose is an attribute shared by many physiognomies and types, and what’s wrong with that? Cyrano de Bergerac had a big nose, and he was French. You seem obsessed with noses, Jews and court documents. Honestly, Bob, get a life.
    Bob, May 8, 2020 at 9:21 PM

    Hookend nose Jew has been a stereotype against Jews for hundreds of years.
    Alison, May 9, 2020 at 5:39 AM

    Looks like you had a deprived (not to mention depraved) childhood, since you don’t know anything about trolls. They’re Scandinavian. They always have big noses. Here’s one: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/309622543112350739/
    Anne M. BergMay 10, 2020 at 2:47 AM

    The well-known and multi-talented Jimmy Durante was also famous for his nicknames “The Schnoz” and “The Great Schnozzola”. He was born in NYC to Italian immigrants. Another Hollywood name is Owen Wilson who sports a rather large and odd variety as noses go. He traces his nose to Irish roots. So, you see Bob, it’s not only Jews who have a claim to fame on big noses.
    Anne M. BergMay 8, 2020 at 10:08 PM

    Did this satire awaken a sleeping giant? Lenny, as long as you are awake check out this excellent article on anti-Semitism. Jews do not have monopoly on calling themselves Semites, leaving your claim complete rubbish that this satire does not even try to hide anti-Semitism. If you are offended by anything referring to the word “hook”, I second Cinderella’s advice to you: get a life.

    If or when you repost the USAC blog, this tweet by Halbig in 2018 debunks any claim you could come up with.


    That is one of the docs Dean Foods sent Halbig. The address, 12 Dickinson Dr Sandy Hook. The day, 09/06/12.

    A food delivery, not to Chalk Hill in Monroe, but to Dickinson in Sandy Hook.

    The question is, why would Halbig tweet that? Did he not read it?
    Bob, May 9, 2020 at 4:30 PM

    In case you think that photo was altered in some way. here is the actual screenshot of the tweet.

    Alison, May 9, 2020 at 5:42 PM

    I don’t know why he tweeted it. It doesn’t debunk anything. And because “Mike Norton” brought up the same issue, that confirms for me that you are Mike Norton. And Tony Mead has told me Mike Norton is C.W. Wade. And of course C.W. Wade is Charles Frye of Stockton, Calif.

    Why so many aliases?
    Bob, May 9, 2020 at 6:13 PM

    LOL, of course you deflect and not comment on the tweet itself.

    Why was there a Dean Foods document that showed a food delivery to Dickinson Dr in Sept 2012? Wouldn’t the food have been sent to Chalk Hill at that point
    Bob, May 9, 2020 at 6:36 PM

    Many articles about the town of Monroe deciding what to do with Chalk Hill.





    Town Council meeting.




    Alison, May 9, 2020 at 8:21 PM

    It’s clear the First Selectman, Stephen Vavrek, knew about a plan for Chalk Hill that was not shared with the public. He kept taking the item off the agenda and holding private meetings the topic of which was never revealed. See this article (Exhibit 4) from June 2012, where the author expresses anger that there’s never any real plan or any real discussion: https://app.box.com/s/op5leux4j4gl6pwkrr2n0f6p7043o27h
    Bob, May 9, 2020 at 8:58 PM

    That’s from Dec 2010. Wasn’t Sandy hook supposed to have been closed since 2008?
    Bob, May 9, 2020 at 9:23 PM

    And there is this. A lot of the Sandy Hook was closed theory is based on the supposed condition of the school. Based on these docs obtained by Crisisactorsguild.com, Chalk Hill was the school that was in bad shape.


    According to that as of Dec 31 2012, Chalk Hill did not meet the minimum safety codes.

    And in May 2011 asbestos was found in the school.



    Alison, May 10, 2020 at 10:41 AM

    I fully agree that Chalk Hill was in deplorable condition, too, but I doubt it was as unusable as Sandy Hook was. Were any children really put at Chalk Hill? I can’t remember seeing any evidence that they were, although apparently the school had still been used for sixth graders even though ostensibly mothballed. I heard cops were patrolling the property and not letting anybody near.

    As for the date of closure of SHES, it is Jim Fetzer who says it was 2008. Wolf sought evidence as to its being nonoperational only going back to Sept. 2012–and he got that. As for me, I think it most likely stopped being used as a school after severe flooding in 2011.
    Bob, May 10, 2020 at 11:41 AM

    Unless either of you can produce documents that say the school was closed, then it’s just speculation.

    There is evidence that an inspection showed asbestos in May 2011 at Chalk Hill. There is no such document that shows asbestos contamination at Sandy Hook. they found asbestos at the time of the demolition, but the school was over 50 years old. Finding asbestos in a building that old wasn’t a surprise, but there has never been any report shown that there was any danger to the students.

    Halbig has already shown the food delivery document to 12 Dickinson Dr in Sept ’12. The other documents he got from Dean Foods don’t show what he thinks they do.

    This is the invoice he got, he circled what he thought were the key points.


    Unfortunately he ignored what was on the right. That shows a modified date on 1/02/13 and the note “now located in the old Chalk Hill school in Monroe.”

    The kids started at Chalk Hill on 1/03. New school means the food deliveries that Sandy Hook was getting have to be made to a different location. Once they changed the database on 1/02, the address of Sandy Hook was changed to the Chalk Hill address. So that means when you go back in the database, the address for Sandy Hook would no longer list it as Dickinson, but as Chalk Hill. A paper document, like the one Halbig tweeted, would still have the old address listed.

    Alison, May 10, 2020 at 12:50 PM

    “Unless either of you can produce documents that say the school was closed, then it’s just speculation.” No, you have shifted the burden of proof. There have been no documents produced establishing that the school was OPEN. Halbig has tried for years to get such things as work orders for maintenance, phone bills, insurance documents, and been denied everything.

    As for asbestos, Exhibit 47 at this link is the state’s report of asbestos contamination of SHES: https://app.box.com/s/sdvvbmraprg15trxxbcnztvb4f80e5i5

    I have seen other documents establishing asbestos contamination and the bill for remediation, I’m sure, but need to reach out to my contacts for those. The roof was also in bad shape, but repairs recommended to be done were never done.

    And only if repairs and renovation were done would the asbestos have become a problem. When the asbestos stays in place, it doesn’t cause harm. It is only when it is disturbed that it becomes friable and hazardous. The bill for remediation upon demolition would have been much smaller than that for renovation. That’s why people DO often demolish buildings these days, instead of renovating.

    August 2011 survey of Sandy Hook Elementary.

    https://web.archive.org/web/20140714130545/http://www.newtown.k12.ct.us/Portals/Newtown/District/docs/Facilities/School Facilities Survey/ED050-SANDY HOOK.pdf

    By “asbestos remediation needed” it says the number 4, Which means that asbestos was not a problem in the school in 2011. If there was no remediation needed in 2011, they would not have closed the school.
    Bob, May 10, 2020 at 1:24 PM

    And overall air quality was 3(excellent). I don’t think they would have judged air quality to be excellent if asbestos were a major problem.
    Alison, May 10, 2020 at 8:44 PM

    Cinderella did a terrific expose of all the needs of the Newtown schools, which were not being fulfilled. $4.5 million in repairs was recommended for Sandy Hook in 2002, and she finds no evidence what if anything on that punch list was done.

    Who needs asbestos when everything is falling apart? Cinderella’s article (unfortunately now with many nonworking links) is here: https://app.box.com/s/e8txg7mnki2uack69c5xq0pm5m1e88mz
    Bob, May 10, 2020 at 9:27 PM

    If the school was in such bad shape, why release hundreds of hi-quality photos of the school? Fetzer at first tried to say all those crime scene photos were leaked to one of his co-authors, Allen Powell. Why Powell lied about that is not known.

    Sandy Hook was built in 1957, it looked it. But that’s not proof it had been closed. As i have already pointed out, Chalk Hill wasn’t in good shape. So does that mean you’re going to substitute one old school for another old school? The handicap parking at both schools was the same too. Both had the yellow marking on the parking lot, neither had blue. So if Sandy Hook was not ADA compliant, like Fetzer and others have said, then neither was Chalk Hill.

    Another big thing agaimnst Chalk Hill being used as Sandy Hook before 1/03/13 is the lack of a playground. This is the school in March 2012, no playground.


    But here is the school in Sept 2013, there is now a playground and a soccer field.


    Alison, May 9, 2020 at 7:56 PM

    Why don’t you just email me, instead of putting all this stuff on my blog?

    The answer may be that the school was being used for other purposes, just not as a school. I (and others) have speculated that it was being used as offices. So food could’ve gone there. Alternatively, the driver had different instructions for delivery than the address on the bill–a different manifest. I don’t know Wolf’s answer to that. I’ve emailed him about it, but he does not have a keyboard at present so I don’t know when (or if) I will hear back.
    Bob, May 9, 2020 at 9:01 PM

    Or there’s another answer, Sandy Hook was open as a full elementary school and the food was delivered there for that reason.

    Whether or not Sandy Hook was a hoax does not hinge on the school being closed. You can still say it was a hoax with the school being open and in full operation. You’d just have to alter your theory.
    Alison, May 10, 2020 at 11:18 AM

    There would be videos showing the children evacuating if indeed children had been at the school.

    Anyway, as to the inconsistent Sept. 2012 food delivery to Sandy Hook Elementary at 12 Dickinson Drive, Wolf received along with that invoice an email from Kelly Montin of Dean Foods, who said the delivery was actually made to 375 Fan Hill Road in Monroe, CT, and provided him a spreadsheet of the deliveries which has that address on it. See Exhibit 9 at this link: https://app.box.com/s/1v0yygwgxm59q1wx5yn6gf95g3mgfow6

    A clearer copy of her spreadsheet is here: https://app.box.com/s/1vxrygpbf3inxa7wejfqi9z435ye55qj
    Bob, May 10, 2020 at 12:03 PM

    I showed the full image of the invoice Halbig received. In that exhibit he conveniently cropped the right side off. That part hurts his case and he knew it.

    Look closely at that spreadsheet, notice anything?

    Whoever did it, spelled elementary wrong. Those green triangles on the left mean there were errors in the spreadsheet
    BobJuly 8, 2020 at 6:21 PM

    Halbig plead guilty today, sentenced next week.
    AlisonJuly 15, 2020 at 8:33 PM

    No, he didn’t. More disinfo from Bob the Shill!
