Baker County’s very own bogeyman — better known as the Taylor Wild Man — has emerged from the shadows and found an Internet connection.
“You know you were my worst nightmare growing up,” commented Pauline Faye Gibbs on the Taylor Wild Man’s Facebook page. “Now you don’t seem so scary. Happy Halloween Taylor Wild Man.”
To get better acquainted with the once illusive terror that’s plagued local children’s imaginations for generations, The Press contacted the Taylor Wild Man via social media to request an interview.
The interview and his posts to Facebook and Twitter show him to be a straight-talkin’ hunter and lover of the great outdoors, and a fan of the Florida Gators. He appears to have a crush on Miranda Lambert as well.
Taylor Wild Man: I just got a message on the Facebook from a young lady that said ya’ll might want to interview me. I reckon that sounds like a good idea. I don’t really know what ya’ll want to know about me, but if you wanna send me some questions I can try to answer them the best I can. Ya’ll could try to come out here and find me, but most of the time when someone sees me I wasn’t looking to hold a meet and greet. I pretty much keep to myself for obvious reasons.
Joel Addington: Excellent. I guess my first question is how should I address you? Taylor? Mr. Wild Man?
TWM: You can call me the Wild Man an I guess.
