MUST LISTEN: Mason Tackett calls into KSR

On Friday, Mason Tackett became an internet sensation following his interview with WYMT about his cousin’s attempt to steal his soap, cheese grater, and empty bottle of Lysol. This morning, Tackett called into Kentucky Sports Radio to talk about his newfound fame, and, let me tell you, it was a call for the ages.

“I woke up this morning and walked by the mirror and I was starstruck for 15 minutes,” Tackett said. “I’m telling you, there’s people messaging me on Facebook saying, ‘Oh my god, I can’t believe you added me on Facebook.’ I’m like, ‘Buddy, I’m standing in line at the Speedway just like everybody else does.'”

The more you get to know about Tackett, the more fascinating he becomes. He described his decision to run for Floyd County Judge Executive (“The way I figure, 2018 was crazy as hell anyway”), his cousin, aka the “Turkey Creek Terrorist,” and how he’s dealing with the haters. The latter resulted in this epic line.

“You know how when somebody blows up or goes viral, you’re always going to have haters?” Tackett said. “I’ve got people on my Facebook saying, ‘You’ve got your 15 minutes of fame, you need to quit.’ I’m like, ‘You know what, you all are just a bunch of jelly monsters on Jelly Mountain.'”

You can meet Tackett Thursday night at the Paddy Wagon in Richmond, where he plans to tell the uncensored version of the attempted robbery. The party is BYOCG — Bring your own cheese grater.

    I’d put them up against Lee and Matt any day.
