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.
