Fat Mike (NOFX): ‘South American Ain’t Such a Bad Place After All!’

Written by Jason Strange on March 9, 2010

Just imagine it. You’re in a foreign country where you probably don’t speak the language and look like a guy from a punk rock band. Someone robs you. How do you react? If you’re Fat Mike from NOFX, surprisingly well.

The singer/bass player posted onto his companies website a story from Argentina where the band are currently touring:

“If there ever was a good way to get mugged, I found it. Yeah, No one wants to get robbed, but if you do, I can’t think of a better way.

So, I’m walking down the streets of Buenos Aires at around 7 am looking for a bar and I stop at an intersection. I wanted to text one of our camera dudes and tell him that I was gonna wander around town for a while and maybe he wanted to film me. I pushed send and a guy on a bike accidentally knocks my I-phone out of my hand. Wait a second, he doesn’t stop and my I-phone isn’t on the ground. I look to my right and there he is, holding my phone (which has a fuck load of pictures that I don’t really want made public) with his right hand and making a pretty fast getaway. Wow! I’ve been robbed!

I kind of laugh and think, pretty sneaky. What a fucking great way to get robbed. No violence, no trauma, no chance I’m gonna run after him. Pretty sweet really. I also had a few hundred bucks in the phone case, but I would rather lose that then get held up at gunpoint or bashed in the head with a pipe. So even though I lost, I really kind of won. South America ain’t such a bad place after all.

Ps. I had a passcode lock on my phone so you didn’t get shit mother fucker! You do get points for style though. I was impressed.”

To whoever has his phone, do not, whatever you do, put those pictures online. No one needs to see whatever they might be!!!
