Blogger Cheap Bastard lost at sea; good bye old friend
It is with much sadness that I report the news that TravelGolf.com blogger Cheap Bastard has apparently perished, after the boat he was traveling on to Zimbabwe was attacked by pirates.
Cheap Bastard, whose real name was Percy Ramirez-Epstein, reportedly stowed away on a cargo boat heading to the African nation. Sources close to WorldGolf.com have told us the boat was raided by pirates off the coast of Florida. Everyone on the boat survived the raid, except for Percy.
In his final blog post, he wrote about his excitement in going to Zimbabwe on a golf review trip.
Yes, President/Dictator Robert Mugabe has sent the Prince of Pennies an invitation to try out some of his nation’s golf courses and see what a great vacation spot Zimbabwe truly is.
I’ll be traveling soon, bringing my loyal and fabulous readers some amazing things from this African nation, showcasing the amazing deals that can arise from political turmoil. Ah, political turmoil, where would we be without it?
We at WorldGolf.com will miss Cheap Bastard and his Budget Golfer posts. And on a personal note, having dated Percy briefly in 2005, I would like to add that Percy was a complex, interesting man, who far exceeded his humble beginnings of being a vague concept and a random photo lifted off a “before” picture on a long-defunct weight-loss advertisement. In the end, he was so much more than that.
Goodbye, Cheap Bastard. Feel free to use the comment section of this post to relay your memories and thoughts of the legendary Cheap Bastard.

Sorry to hear El Cheapo has faded away like the sickly-sweet stench surrounding the Democratic candidate Sen Barack Hussein Obama! ;)
2. Cheap Bastard is really Dot Wong, right?
3. BV will be glad to know that RonMon has not faded away, nor grown old.
4. "apparently" leaves open a dramatic return of Cheap Bastard.
BV: Thanks for the compliment. I suspect Kevin Costner's lawyer will be contacting you soon, however. Good luck with that.
I could go on and on about Percy, but he wouldn't want that. As we all know, he was a private man who never looked to shine attention on himself, regardless of his penchant for referring to himself in the the third, fourth and fifth person multiple times in every post. Regardless, I find his demise simultaneously tremendously sad and minorly time-conserving.
Still, comforting to know you died as you lived - cheapskate to the end.
HELP!! Monny, do something!!! ;)
