I don’t get it. Why would a father and son be at odds all the time? Paul Teutul Sr. and Paul Teutul Jr. have most of their arguments on video because of their television show American Chopper. Its pretty obvious that Dad has some issues with his son.
But the idea of suing each other and creating a new show where you two idiots compete against each other is absolute lunacy.
Paul Teutul Jr. you need to understand that your dad is not going to be on the planet forever. If the guy dropped dead tomorrow you would never be able to forgive yourself for not speaking to him. Not to mention that its fairly obvious that you are the creative brains behind the operation. Look at the stupid bikes your dad puts together. The man doesn’t have a creative bone in that big empty head of his.
The bike that Paul Sr. slapped together just to show that he could beat you to the punch was freaking leppo dude. It was lame. The welding helmet for a headlight was stupid looking. The paint scheme looked like technicolor vomit.
Where Senior is good at putting existing objects on a bike, Junior is great at designing original concepts that make a bike completely original and one of a kind. Junior can see what Senior cannot. At the same time, Senior at times complements Junior’s great ideas with good ideas of his own.
As for Mikey and Vinnie, I think you two made the right choice sticking with Junior. Senior has the intelligence level of Forrest Gump and is about as interesting as a five pound sack of fertilizer.
But Mikey and Vince need to convince these two idiots to kiss and make up already. I like that Mikey is sticking to his guns and telling Senior that he takes both Paul Junior and him, or nothing.
When I was younger I did construction. My boss Don was just like you Senior. He would show up on the job site, yell at us for doing everything wrong, grab a saw and a hammer and start cutting and hammering. When he would realize that he screwed everything up, Don would leave the job site while we had to spend three hours fixing what he fucked up. This happened constantly.
That is exactly what Senior does on American Choppers. He comes wondering out of his office, yells and screams, has about a dozen really stupid ideas, Junior gets pissed and leaves, and when he comes back he has to fix what Senior did.
Watching Senior and Junior is like watching a dysfunctional marriage. These guys are like oil and water. Note to Senior, just sit in your office and count your money. Stop going out in the shop and meddling with the process.
