I may tuck my T-shirt into my underwear, but I take solace in the fact that I could never ever in twelvity million years be this lame:
Tattooed with Polo. Why? It's left unexplained here.
He's probably got a Guess triangle tattooed on his left buttcheek, too. And one of those Girbaud tag and loops on his... oh never mind.
Speaking of Girbaud jeans, I was in the ninth grade and making the transition from private school to public school when that trend hit, and my mom was gracious enough to buy me a pair. That article of clothing, along with my newly minted mullet/sidespike combination haircut, should have cemented my spot in the popular pantheon. Plus my acne provided an air of burgeoning maturity that those fresh-and-rosy-faced kids were clearly lacking.
But alas, it wasn't meant to be. I wore the jeans along with a fetching cardigan sweater over a black turtleneck for the first day of school, only to be ridiculed with endless taunts, most of them crude and underdeveloped, but all of them possessing the basic principal of "a loser in Girbaud jeans is still a loser." Damned if you do and damned if you don't.
I was going to be brave and post my ninth grade photo, just to help you imagine it properly, but when I got out my yearbook all I found was this. Hmmmm, perhaps I didn't have the healthiest self-image back then after all.
Man that guy's got a bad haircut to boot.

how cold is it really the first day of school in... Minnesota, yes? Turtleneck and cardigan? My goodness. It's about 90 in September here in NJ.

I can provide you with your full color wallet size picture. Leave me a note on the kitchen tabel and I'll get it first thing when I get home!
And you know what...I'll even let you scan mine. Worst photo in the history of school photos. So bad the Molly left my 8th grade photo up for two years. :(

It's funny you mention temperature, because it was always a big issue for the first day of school. My mother would only buy us new fall and winter type clothing when shopping for school clothes, and very few items at that, so I'd pray for the first day of school to be cold enough to wear my new digs. It never happened though. So it was probably over 70 degrees out that day, but I had people to impress regardless of the temperature.

Dan I love your honesty! "but I had people to impress regardless of the temperature"

I'm more concerned that he is purporting to be 22. Please. Stay out of the sun already. . .

i'm inspired to put that Guess triangle on my ass somewhere... HOTTT!

Oh...and this guy is a total tool box.
By Kristina, at 4:22 PM
Yeah, this guy is a total tool. Not only did he put a logo on his body, he didn't pick out the design for his tatoo till he was in the shop. Dim bulb.

The most upsetting aspect of this story is that he is clearly developmentaly disabled - look at those FAS eyes - yet the tatoo artist did it anyway.

Yuckers. All of it.
Dude, shirt, tatoo, nipple...yuckers.

I had a friend in high school who got a logo tattooed on her arm. At the time it was some skateboarder brand that no one but "skaters" knew.
10 years later I see that brand being sold here in australia at TARGET!!!! She should have listened to me when I warned her against it.

I don't know.... I think it's kinda cute. (In a dorky kind of way).
By elizabeth, at 6:27 AM
Ugh. I hate this tool so badly. He makes me cringe. Why did they pose him in front of a chalk board? Because he has an Ivy League style tat? Ugh. I hate everybody.

This reminds me of my clever idea of tattoing xaviar roberts on my right butt cheek...
It is almost as clever as getting a big,big black sun on your right arm...

my reintroduction to public school was set up to fail... I got a really curly perm, wore a black safari looking dress complete with jungle themed jewlery *there was a rhino on it* I really don't know how my parents loved me I was such a nerd...

I thought my new Snoopy shirt would make me a hit on my first day of seventh grade. I apparently forgot that Snoopy is never cool in seventh grade and the kids in seventh grade were the same kids from sixth grade. They already knew I was a dork.
BTW, Stacy, I think black sun tatoos on arms are nifty.

You are the best sissy!
By Stacy, at 4:01 PM
I dislike looking at this guy more than the two faced cat. New post pleeeeeeeeeease!
There is just something about this guy that gives me an angry tummy ache. Oh, I hate him and his stupid face.
By Kristina, at 9:43 AM
two things... 1. Did K-Mack ever come through with the wallet-size picture? and 2. Ready for a new post and it doesn't have to be as good as "beaver." I still re-read "beaver" when I am grumpy.
By , at 11:15 AM
lol, you guys are so harsh!
i personally think that tatoo is kinda hot..
... and i love mullets! especially his, it shows off his lush dark-copper-brown hair so gorgeously!
and bewareoftheblog, hugh grant just happens to be one of the hottest movie stars, in my opinion!!

I totally thought that was Seth Myers too, and I got all excited, but then... not.
But I do think the nipple is kinda hot.
