Wakka, Wakka, Wakka. . .

Fonzie's growing the green buds. If you've been to a recent Claremont city council meeting, or read Will Bigham's recent reports of them in the DB, you've heard of Dave and Darleen and their pot-related antics. Earlier, I posted a video of an advertisement they bought featuring Mayor Yao's email:



This ad was posted on You Tube by a "mrswakka." Googling "mrs wakka" and Claremont turns over a few stone[r]s.

It is clear from, say, this discussion on the Home Grown Bud online forums that Mr. and Mrs. Wakka are, in fact, Dave and Darleen:

"we found a new and not too(!) expensive way to get our point across. heh. If you live in southern california, you are probably pretty familiar with the poorman. he's been on t v and radio for the longest time around here. he has a show on saturday and sunday nights. it's called the poormans bikini beach.

"he was nice enough to cut us a deal on a thirty second commercial, featuring the phone number of a local city council, and the email of it's mayor. he's going to urge everyone watching to call and email to their hearts content to show disapproval of them shutting down a medical marijuana dispensary...what a wonderful way to say hi mr mayor!"

"if we get fifty people to call or email, I would be more than pleased. if we get a hundred, I'm gonna pop a chubby and put it to use!"

"to the mayor, medical marijuana is low on the priority list. I think between the commercial with his email address and a picture of me smoking a joint and holding up that sign in his local paper, I think he might start thinking it's a little more important."

"some lady walked by and asked me where I was going to get my meds now that they had closed the dispensary. I told her."the same place I used to get it, claremont high school parking lot". reporter said, "o k, I got my quote".


"HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA hiya mr mayor! how you like me and mrs wakka now dude?"


"their centennial celebrations start in a few weeks. sure was thoughtful to give us a calendar with all the dates and locations, now wasn't it?

it wont be hard to put a damper on them with our big sign outside as they walk in. plus, when you wave and say high with a big smile, really tweaks the straights. our plan is to make them so uncomfortable, it drives them nuts. it is a very rich college town, and they don't like anything that disturbs their perfect order.

like me and mrs wakka."


Indeed.

There's plenty more fun to be had reading about the Wakkas if you just do some googling. Listen to them brag about the pot-cookie incident! Did Mrs. Wakka really walk "down the aisle to supertramp"? Learn the finer points of pot growing by taking the wakka family's technical advice!

I have known Dave & Darlene for many years now & they are 2 of the best people I've met. They're the kind of folks that after speaking with them, it feels like they've been pals for decades.
The author of this story, who divulged their personal information, has put them in some jeopardy. Now every idiot out there may think they've discovered an easy target, but let me tell you 1 thing, They're totally prepared for anyone who may think they can take advantage of their situation. But when I saw what the writer of this article had done to their privacy, I felt I should let him know what a dangerous position you may have caused such nice people.
Anyone who may think they've discovered an easy target, best think twice before getting anywhere near their home.

Um, I don't give a rats behind where they live. And I don't see how I violated their privacy or put them in danger, either. All I did is follow the tracks they left for all to see on the internets. Lets not get to paranoid here...

As long as you understand if anything happens to them, you will bear most of the responsibility.
I don't think you understand what you have done.

I'd like to start by pointing out that it was, and is Fozz E. Bear, the Muppet, that said, "Wakka, Wakka, Wakka." Fonzie, a character from the series Happy Days, his signature was saying, "heyyyyyy", but I can see how you could easily get the 2 backwards.
Yes, we do have every intention of going to every Claremont Centennial Celebration. Yes, we do intend to to try to put a damper on these occasions. But, if you have been to any of the celebrations, you would have noticed we sit with our sign, back a respectful distance from the gathering, and neither do we yell or shout or in any way try to disrupt these gatherings. When Dave sits at the corner of Foothill and Indian Hill, he doesn't yell or shout at anybody while he sits there. We also place his chair far enough back so as to not impede people walking by.
But, if we understand the concept of staging a protest, it IS meant to put a damper on the proceedings, not to hamper or stop the proceedings, which we never have.
As far as for "breaking" the information that we planned on protesting at every one of the Centennial Celebrations we could, since we have attended just about every function that it has been possible for us to attend, is it really that big of a surprise that we would be there? But I'm sure Claremont appreciates the time you took to point out the really obvious.
We did miss the swearing in ceremony, but even had we known about it, we wouldn't have gone. That would have been mean. 5 people were taking an oath before God, their families, and their neighbors. Enough people have seen us and talked to us now that they know we wouldn't do that. That's not what Dave and I are about. Never has been, and never will be.
As for bringing cookies and flowers to the City Council meeting, you're right. That truly was a monstrous act. I don't know what we could have possibly been thinking about.

This Tuesday, the Claremont City Council plans on making a wacky kind of move. They will not be making any ruling on Medical Marijuana. Instead, they will be introducing an ordinance regarding the prohibition of businesses that contravene state and/or federal law. Way to go Mayor Yao!
