Snorkel Massey laid low by a cat

By johnboy - 8 March 2013 45

The ABC has new pages in the list of pathetic excuses offered by Matthew Massey to the courts.

The officer said Massey was unable to submit to urine analysis because sore ribs made urinating difficult and his mother had phoned to say he could not attend the meeting because he was having an allergic reaction to a cat.

I’ve had sore ribs. Still needed to wee though.

As for getting your mum to call in? Really? This is a hard man? With a cat allergy?

For his parole breaches he’s been remanded in custody until next week.

What’s Your opinion?

Someone needs to give this man a good smack and tell him to grow the lump up. I’m gobsmacked that a grown-ass, supposedly “hard” man could act so remedial and childish.

What kind of penalty is he up for in the unlikely event his completely plausible story about rib pains and cat allergies turns out to be untrue, does anyone have an idea? I imagine we’d be looking at a failed drug-test into the bargain as well as the no-show for meeting.

Garema Place stocks – there’s a centenary project I could get excited about. For one very big day, the best of the worst locked up with a variety of projectiles free to the public.

If I ever get another cat I’ll call it Massey.

What was the problem, he ran out of relatives to attend fake funerals for? Have to be desperate to try this excuse.

Well that changed quick-sticks.

Which is surprising, given the buttons.

The Warnie strategy. Did Massey’s mum give him a diuretic as well?

Proof positive that even hard men own pussy cats.

He really is just a misunderstood sensitive new-age guy.

Even people with gallstones have to piss.

I’d like to have been a fly on the wall when that conversation took place, ‘I know, the beak’ll treat me kind if I just tell him this’. ‘Nah’ says his mate, ‘get your mum to call it in; dead set that’ll work’.

yep, except for “hard man”, read “spineless bully”.

They pull this sort of crap because years of flailing around the justice system teaches them that it’s a fair chance of working. In a sense, they should be congratulated for learning something … anything :-\

He uses his mum to call him in sick and then couldn’t piss for sore ribs? For someone who’s been in and out of the clink more times than most and made a life physical self-destruction, I’m pleasantly surprised at how light weight he is.

The whole family is a waste of space and resources.

His mother phoned.

Classic, just classic….

The heartening thing about this story is that the Magistrate followed through on the parole breach and jailed him. As for your rhetorical questions, I just had to laugh. Hard man? Only in his own mind. If brain cells were dynamite, he couldn’t blow his nose.

Thanks JB.
I needed that.

What is honestly wrong with this family? I’m curious on the story behind them as well as at what point the massey line went ‘bad’. There must have been some point where there was a negligent/abusive parent that started the cycle.
