Jacob Volkmann admits hes trying to make a name for himself as a fighter. The problem is its getting him in trouble at his other job.
Following a fight last Friday, the 31-year old White Bear Lake man was being interviewed by Joe Rogan. Volkmann told Rogan that President Obama should call him to schedule a glass-ectomy. Rogan then asked what a glass-ectomy is.
A glass-ectomy is when you cut your bellybutton out and put a piece of glass in there so when you have your head up your butt you can see where youre going. Volkmann said.
The White Bear Lake School District apparently was not amused. Volkmann, whos an assistant wrestling coach for White Bear Lake, said the district put him on paid administrative leave.
I thought it was kind of a funny joke, it was meant for humor, Volkmann said. And the school took it the wrong way.
If the story sounds familiar, it is.
When asked who hed like to fight next following a fight in late 2010, Volkmann said Obama because someones got to knock some sense into that idiot.
That comment not only got Volkmann put on leave from the school district, but also caught the attention of the U.S. Secret Service. They questioned him not long after.

Let Hussein meet this guy in the ring.
That’s a new one.
It could definitely be useful on the many political threads.
Among humorless, perpetually irate progressives anyway.
“Glassectomy” - that there’s funny, I don’t care who you are!
How did “Christmas” do in his last fight on 12/30/11? I missed it.
From what I’ve seen he’s a pretty good MMA fighter, but IMHO, should ‘shut up and dance’. Nobody I know watches MMA for the brilliant political analysis.
It seems like there is constant overreaction by the Secret Service regarding any negative comments directed at “The Divine One.”
When Bush was in office, did anyone EVER get in trouble for such comments. Ever?
It’s actually an embarassingly stupid joke. Glassectomy would mean the removal, not implanting, of glass. I hope if this guy keeps getting publicity for anti-Obama jokes, I hope they at least make sense!
