HIGHLANDS – Yesterday Wild & Wooly announced they will be closing, adding to the list of iconic businesses to close in the Highlands over the last few years. The owner stated on Facebook his plans of possibly teaching pilates in the future, causing hundreds of Hobbit fans to actually leave the house and drive to Wild & Wooly to argue with him. But Hobbit fans aren’t the only one’s upset about the possible departure of the video store, one customer Doug Small, said no one else in town carries obscure Kevin Smith porn titles like Wild & Wooly.
“Everyone always tells me to just go online and get it,” said Small. “Look the internet is a powerful thing, but I can’t find two guys that look like Kevin Smith having sex with each other. It’s actually one of my favorite titles “Comic Book Men & Other Comic Book Men”. Google it, I promise it ain’t out there.”
Small showed up to Wild & Wooly last night throwing a tantrum, demanding the video store honor his years of support by making VHS copies of every Kevin Smith porn he’s ever rented.
“I rented “Clerks Having Sex With Each other 6″ several dozen times and even paid hundreds of dollars in late fees,” said Small. “How can a local business that claims to love their customers just close down suddenly like this? Especially when “It’s Not A Schooner, It’s A Sailors Butt” is about to come out this spring.”
Many others took to Facebook saying they never shopped at Wild & Wooly but that they liked the idea of it being there.
“I’m outraged by a local business closing,” said a woman on Facebook. “It’s like when that Incense store Ear-X-Tacy closed. I never shopped there either but loved telling friends it was still open.”
At press time Lebowski Fest owner Will Russell said he’s thinking of buying Wild & Wooly and having the building air lifted to his new mountain he purchased this month.
