When asked by a college newspaper if he would rather have a lifetime supply of money or women, local drummer Tanner Demmery said, “Money, because you could always buy chicks if you have money.” University Press interviewed Demmery as part of a 2002 exposé on the Fort Lauderdale band “Shine Box.” Formed in October 2000, University Press said Demmery’s band played music by Pearl Jam, Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkins.
Tanner Demmery was asked a series of “unusual questions” designed to illicit humorous responses.
“Peanut Butter-Smooth, Chunky, or Goober Grape? ‘Smooth all the way.’ Would you rather have a lifetime supply of chicks or money? ‘Money, because you could always buy chicks if you have money.’ Would you rather spend 24 hours shackled to Roseanne or Carrot Top? ‘Roseanne, don’t know why though.'”
For his last answer, Demmery gave a somewhat off-color response about his testicles. He was asked, “Would you give your left nut for a record contract? ‘Yeah, because my left one’s been kind of off lately anyways.‘”
Fast forward to 2018, Demmery is running for the Broward County Court Group 9 seat against local attorney Corey Amanda Cawthon and Leonore “I’m not a scammer” Greller.
In this era of the #MeToo movement where men are called upon to answer for their treatment and behavior towards women, one may think Tanner Demmery would address questions about his remarks.
Nope. Tanner Demmery did not respond to a request for comment.
Does Tanner Demmery still think he can “buy” women? Does he still prefer Roseanne to Carrot Top?
Voters deserve answers before putting Tanner Demmery anywhere near the Broward bench.
