We are living in the end times.



Behold the bastard child of Abercrombie and Fitch, begat by Myspace, part of the lost tribe of Olan Mills.

Apparently, this is a new trend in high school yearbooks.

I found this by way of gawker.com and thought it represented perfectly....something....(note the sandals and cargo shorts by the way). I'm just not sure what.

I thought it was a picture of 'Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane' at first glance.

Soft-core porn and yearbooks?! We are living in our last days, indeed.

I know! That's what I thought too...it looks oddly biblical, doesn't it?

Or like soft core...
same difference.

Oh the many wrongnesses in this one picture.... It's self aggrandizing soft-core Sistine Chapel but with cargo shorts and sandals and a baby's head on top. Which I guess just about sums up your basic high school boy.

What is the deal with the bangs?

Silly Monkey said...

I was thinking the same thing as govtdron. The first thing I saw was the little plastered bangs. Very Houma-esque, don't you think? ;)

To think, you couldn't have your belly button showing in my school. This would NEVER make it in our yearbook.

His mother must have the 8x10 in a gilded frame on top of her console television. That is the same place my mother has my grad pic with the pushed up jacket sleeves and sock tie.

Wow...that's quite a senior photo. Love the Midwest hair...nothing quite says ready to enter the "real world" like cargo shorts and shirtless. He'll be in amateur porn in not time!

The worst is that this is the best he's ever going to look. That beef is going to turn to potatoes pretty quick.
