And Another Thing


The humorless Daniel Snyder

Some day, someone will make a reality series called "Missing," and the first episode will be titled "Daniel Snyder's Sense of Humor."

Yeesh, but the man is grim. You could read a newspaper through his skin, it's so thin. The next the time he laughs will be the first, especially at himself.

All of that in the wake of Snyder's latest humor lobotomy, directed at a Washington radio station that's taken to doing spot-on parodies of Redskins' radio broadcasts. They're apparently quite funny -- but Snyder doesn't think so, choosing to send his minion, Tony Wyllie, to threaten legal action of the radio station didn't cease and desist making, you know, jokes.

No, really. The guy actually threatened to sue.

So, over and above being the worst owner in football -- Snyder actually charged fans to visit training camp, and once sued a 72-year-old grandmother for backing out of her ticket contract when the housing market went south and she could no longer afford the tickets -- he's also the most humorless. Although he insists he's not thin-skinned at all, no, sir.

Fine, Danny. Now stand still. I'm trying to read the sports section.
