Tutti Frutti (Aw-Rooty)

Police in Madison, Wisc., acting on complaints of people drinking and using drugs in a park, cruised by for a look. A man they knew thrust his hands into his pockets when he saw them, so they searched him — legal because they knew he was on probation for weapons possession. Sure enough, police say, he was carrying a knife in violation of his probation terms, as well as drug paraphernalia and marijuana. Thus, Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-Bop-Bop, 30 — his actual legal name — was taken into custody. Zopittybop-Bop-Bop is on probation after police found him with a loaded gun last year — in Peace Park. (RC/Madison Capital Times) ...It’s the truth / It’s actual / Everything is satisfactual.
Author’s Note: Would it surprise you to hear that Beezow made return visits to This is True? I’m only surprised that as of 2018, he’s only been back twice — in Volume 19 (“Repeat Customer Too”) and Volume 22 (“Now You Know Why They Call Him Bop-Bop-Bop”).
