Kid Rock is All Sorts of Classy

Not that I expected much, from someone who did marry Pam Anderson, and who got into a mini-brawl with Pam's first rocker hubby, Tommy Lee, over Pam and Rock and Pam split. No, it doesn't make sense to me either. It's like fighting over a dirty, used up old sock in WalMart, when there are plenty of brand new socks to be had.

Anyhow, old Kid raised his special brand of classy to a new level by getting into a smackdown at Waffle House. Yep, that's right - - the Awful Waffle. The yellow roofed mecca with the best restaurant coffee out there and with food that will suck the alcohol right out of your system at 2 a.m. when you're drunk and need something in your stomach to keep the world from spinning. Ah, Waffle House.

So it seems like Kid and his entourage hit a Waffle House in my hometown of Atlanta this past Sunday morning - - 5:15 a.m. to be exact. Apparently a woman that was with Kid and his entourage was recognized by a Waffle House patron and some comments were made. Unsurprisingly, the words turned to punches. Unsurprising because this was a 5 a.m. on a Sunday morning - - what kind of people do you expect to see at a Waffle House at 5 a.m. on a Sunday? Not the kind getting ready for church.
Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying a smackdown at Waffle House isn't called for. When you get raisin toast instead of white or wheat . . . or when one lonely person is sitting at a prized booth rather the counter, a smackdown could be considered in order. But fighting over some groupie that you're going to leave by the time you get to Birmingham? Bitch, please.

So Kid and five members of his group were charged with misdemeanors for simple battery, while the patron was charged with a felony count of second degree criminal damage to property - - the window he broke.

Good old Kid posted bond at 5 p.m. and, ever the rock star, signed autographs as he left the DeKalb County pokey. Ah, the life of a cowboy rock star.
