According to a post at David Simon’s personal blog, the Wire creator recently paid a visit to the “small coterie of vacation shacks” in Western Maryland known as Camp David. And while he couldn’t disclose much in the way details, we do know he didn’t walk away from the presidential retreat empty handed. Simon reported that he made off with a martini shaker sporting a presidential seal. (EDIT: But I guess he was just kidding.) And he had photographic evidence to back it up.
Simon referred to his Camp David stay as a “humble-brag visit,” but it’s a pretty uncomplicated brag. He (claims, but who can say whether he) gave a “little talk on public housing policy,” after which (maybe) he “drank a couple shots of presidential Jose Cuervo,” (supposedly) “played a game of presidential darts,” and “tilted a presidential pinball machine” (or maybe that was “satire”). He also
did (may have done) some layups in “the presidential ball court” and bowled 10 frames “in one of the presidential lanes” (but probably actually didn’t).
The presidential martini shaker, complete with a spread-eagle and the words “PRESIDENTIAL RETREAT * * CAMP DAVID,” he swiped as a memento (but he didn’t actually; isn’t this an amazing fake story?!).
Visit Simon’s blog for a picture of the
pilfered prize fake thing (“who knows which historical lips savored its chemistry”).
