Council members spar over Toby Keith spoof

MOUNT JEWETT, Pa. (AP) - September 10, 2012

The Bradford Era reports Monday that Mount Jewett Councilman Jim Troutman wants fellow councilman Brett Morgan to resign. That's because Troutman claims Morgan changed the lyrics to the song during the town's annual Swedish Festival last month to make an allegedly insulting reference to Troutman's trash-hauling business, Troutman Sanitation.

Morgan didn't immediately return a call to respond to Troutman's claim that Morgan substituted the words "Red Roll-Off Truck" - an alleged reference to a kind of garbage truck - while on stage at the festival Aug. 10.

The song celebrates disposable cups commonly used at drinking parties.

The newspaper says the councilmen have long been rivals in the borough about 115 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.
