A message of appreciation to essential workers was marred by a vandal, or vandals with a message of their own.

The original sign was posted at the bottom of Old Hayrake Road in Danbury and it read:

"Thank You Nurses Doctors Essential Team God Bless"

That sign was spray painted over with a note that says:

"You're Fired Thx Jo"

The pictures were sent to me this morning by a Danbury resident that lives on Old Hayrake Road who told me the "You're Fired Thx Jo" sign first appeared on a separate sign in the same area "the other day."

They said a neighbor removed it and someone returned and sprayed the message on top of the essential workers sign. Neighbors have not removed the graffiti sign "yet" according to the Hayrake resident who called the graffiti artist/artists "A-Holes."

What Joe? And, they spelled it "Jo" which is even more confusing. Joe Biden? Joe Cavo? Joe the Plumber? Joe Theismann? Joe Piscopo?

Look, if you want to send a message that lands, the first thing you need to concern yourself with is clarity. Before you grab a spray can, ask yourself, will people even know who I am talking about? Even though the safe money is on Joe Biden we can't know for sure.

Here is my offer, if you are the person behind the graffiti, get in touch with me and we will setup a time for you to come on my show (The Ethan and Lou Show) and you can explain to our audience which Joe you hate.

You can also explain why you think your message is so important that it needs to be sprayed over the top of an appreciative one. I'd love to know why this person believes their opinion is more important than a message of gratitude to our nurses and doctors.

Here is a short list of Jo's who spell their name "Jo":

  • Comedian Jo Koy

That's it, that is the list but he's really funny. I love Jo Koy and he's been on the Ethan and Lou Show multiple times but sadly we never published any of his interviews to Youtube like we usually do so here is some of his stand-up material.

Hat City Group Selects 10 of The Best Breakfast Sandwiches-Delis in Danbury Area

If you consider yourself a breakfast sandwich connoisseur, you know that a bad one will really upset you, so getting the right deli or breakfast spot is what matters most. Most breakfast sandwich extremists know exactly where they are going when they are hungry in the morning and they have their favorite spot. They'll travel out of there way to get there if necessary and it will be worth every extra second.

Maybe you don't have a favorite, or your preference isn't in business anymore, maybe you are new to the Danbury area and if so, you came to the right place. I found a pretty comprehensive list of some of the Danbury areas best places for a breakfast sandwich and It just happened to be on the Danbury, CT Reddit page.

If you are looking to have someone blow smoke up your a--, there are plenty of websites where you can get that. If you want honest, harsh and critical reviews, go to Reddit. If you find a positive review on Reddit, it's because the place they are recommending is very good at what they do.

Someone just like you (u/JansportStrings) was is search of breakfast on Sunday and posted: "Best Breakfast Sandwiches/Delis in the Area?" Below are the delis/eateries they selected.
