21 Reasons Kid Rock Is Awesome Besides The Fact That He Showed Up For Jury Duty Yesterday

While some Republican try-hards were having a Big Dick Contest on Mackinac Island, Michigan-native Kid Rock was being a proper Michigander while showing up for jury duty in Pontiac, Michigan about four hours south.

Per The Detroit News:

“Kid Rock, a Clarkston resident less-well-known as Robert James Ritchie, fulfilled his civic duty and reported to the Oakland County Circuit Court in Pontiac for jury duty on Thursday morning.

Ritchie was dismissed from jury duty around 2:30 p.m., according to a clerk for Oakland County Circuit Judge Martha Anderson. She declined to give a reason for his dismissal, but said the questioning went smoothly.”
