The Nutmeg News Writer Found Dead After "Fill The Bowl" Pitch Session

Puerto Vallarta, MX - Harold Franklin, long time writer for The Nutmeg News and cat enthusiast, was found dead after suffering a seizure from all the jokes that could be made out of the "Fill The Bowl" promotion from Orlando City SC.

 He died as he lived, by taking pictures of statues of seahorses.

"OH. MY. GOD," stated Franklin, "they are doing it again?! THERE'S TOO MANY JOKES! TOO MANY!"

Franklin and other staff members were taking drugs stock of the upcoming columns they were slated to be writing at the semi-weekly TNN private meeting at our palacial estate in Puerto Vallarta. The reporters and editors were having a meeting about the 2016 Major League Soccer (MLS) season when Franklin began to babble nearly incoherently about FILL THE BOWL.

"Fill the BOWL? FILL THE BOWL!? LIKE POOP, POOP, MARIJUANA, M-M-MARIJUANA, POOP, CEREAL, A POOP BASED MARIJUANA. M-M-M-M," babbled Franklin.

 Totally gonna fill that bowl!

Totally gonna fill that bowl!

The Nutmeg News spoke to newly promoted editor David Stewart about the scene and he had the following to say, "He kept babbling on about weed and poop until everyone thought he was having a stroke. As it turns out..."

Franklin is survived by his cat Persephone and his collection of 14 century Venetian erotica.
