Guess which County Supervisor’s spouse rubs elbows with the cannabis elite?

If you guessed it was anyone but Virginia Bass’s husband Matt Owen, then you must be drunk. (We’ll give you a free pass if you guessed it was Estelle Fennell’s partner – they do live in SoHum, so we guess it’s an understandable mistake.)

If, however, you guessed that it is Humboldt’s reigning king of asshat-ery (our new favorite word, kudos to our friend/commenter Esther for reminding us of it), then congratulations! You may still be drunk, but at least you’re a smarty pants drunk.

You may recall we did a pretty enjoyable post about Humboldt’s resident political buffoon back in July. (Read it here.) Please note how incredibly far we have come in our photo-shop skills.

Indeed, you can go ahead and read the article Matt Owen just penned for The Emerald Magazine at their wonderfully green site. We advise against reading it in full, because it’s the holiday season and it’d be a bummer for your entire family if your head were to explode from sheer idiocy overdose before you could give them their presents.

Of course, we couldn’t help but skim some of Matt’s piece in the Emerald. Owen mostly talks about some b.s. involving branding his own ass with a marijuana leaf, or something along those lines, and how he had to get all tipsy off some sparkling pink wine in order to deal with the pain. Whatever.

But we were particularly interested when he ol’ Matty boy said: “Recently I picked up Luke, my SoHum friend and we drove down to the wine country to experience “branding.”

First off, we think it is in extremely poor taste to refer to his amigo as his “SoHum friend.” THC was certain that we had come far enough as a County to stop trivializing the good denizens of SoHum with such de-humanizing terms. Shame, Matthew, shame. Can you imagine how he speaks of the homeless, or all our Humboldt honeys?

Secondly, we just have to imagine that Matty’s “SoHum” friend must be none other than Luke Bruner, our ol’ CCVH pal. Remember how everyone was up in arms because Luke and CCVH were the total enemies of the County for that appalling marijuana ordinance they created? (Joke’s on you, Humboldt – your elected and appointed officials are f***ing it up even more!)

THC has it on good authority that Bruner approached Matt Owen with question’s about how to best craft a marijuana ordinance for Humboldt, and it would appear that Owen and Bruner have continued their blossoming friendship.

THC wonders if Bruner is invited to Christmas, and whether he’ll have even more chances to sway Virginia’s opinion towards the CCVH line of thinking ahead of all the discussions the Supervisors are having on the cannabis ordinance in the near future.

Mostly, though, we wonder when Matt will stop making such a darned fool of himself.

    Thanks so much for helping connect these dots! Matt wants over development of cannabis in TPZ, hence VB can’t possibly avoid constant lobbying. He seems like utter b.s. Luke, his “SoHum” friend he names in the magazine article is another carpetbagger. Again, thanks.

    A giant in his own mind. To the rest of us he’s 5’2″ and a total douch.

    I’m not sure who’s the bigger idiot. Matt when he opens his mouth or Virginia for staying married to him. Their feuds are legendary, any one with a brain would have dumped him long ago.

    Ol Matty is a legend in his own mind. He likes to write to convince everyone how smart he is(sorry Matt it’s not working). To bad he wouldn’t put as much effort into taking care of his customers. I know people who have dealt with him on a professional level and while nothing inappropriate, what a foot dragging piss poor customer service representitive he is.
