Well apparently this is a thing. And it seems that the fellow I encountered was only heir to the original hustle. And there seems to be more than one Bushman. However, I'm sad to report that the originator died back in February.
The award still stands, but I guess we have to issue it posthumously and perhaps as a group award.
And while we're here, I guess we need to set the record straight. This under resourced fellow was the originator and the fully resourced guy with the skeleton costume was the copy cat.
