Nicholas Payton Scorches Occupy Wall Street, Swears

Nicholas Payton may be a full-time trumpeter, but he's no stranger to putting one foot in punditry. The local trumpeter that isn't afraid of swearing in public (see his Twitter hashtag #mfcomn, short for "Mother Fuckers Chillin' on My Nuts") lets it fly on the Occupy Wall Street movement today. In a lengthy blog post titled "Fuck the 99%!!!," Payton calls the movement "99 percent bullshit," and a "big circle jerk." And he has a few words for N.O. transplants playing New Orleans music on the street. Read the whole thing here.
