Andrew WK, former State Department Cultural Ambassador, is Ambassador No More


Well that was fun while it lasted.  Yes, as the State Department gives, the State Department taketh away.  Hard rock partyer/singer Andrew WK was invited this morning by the US embassy in Manama, Bahrain, to spread the gospel of always partying hard (party hard!).

Unfortunately, this blessing was not to be, and State quickly ruined the whole thing by saying Mr. WK “”was probably not a best choice and didn’t meet our standards,” and cancelled the visit.

Said WK:

Poor guy.
