Celebrity Spotting: Carl Monday Hits the Weights

Posted By on Thu, Jun 28, 2007 at 5:51 PM

Either someone was jackin’ it at the Fitworks gym downtown, or “C.M.” – the artist formerly known as Carl Monday, before he left WKYC for 19 Action News and had to figure out a sneaky way to get around his non-compete clause – is working on his pipes. Monday, who gained infamy and became a national joke when he busted a man pleasuring himself at a library, was spotted first at the lateral pull-down machine, putting up what appeared to be about 50 pounds. Then it was off to the incline bench, where he did some sort of side sit-up resembling a 90-year-old woman trying to dance to a 50 Cent song. And then he was gone, his guns smoking from the exertion. C-Notes just has one question: Why hasn’t anybody kicked this guy’s ass yet? Trust us, it won’t be hard. -- Jared Klaus
