While we wait for teenchy to post, please allow me to fill in for Rob’s Friday post.

I would say, based on the alignment of the text to the billboard, that, yes, mediocre is more than good enough. We’ve speculated a bit about how much this is running him. Whatever it costs, this guy is clearly getting his money’s worth. I’m a pretty happy guy and I’ve pulled off a thing or two over the years, but I can’t remember the last time I was so ecstatic that I lifted my arms up to bask in elation at what I had wrought.

Bonus Points:

So, I guess we’re setting up for some sort of Rick (Ricardo?) Soto binge eating PSA. Maybe we could get a very special Gil Thorp on the perils of trying to ingest a whole bottle of cinnamon.

Ricky Soto’s ring finger scares me and if I were Marcell I would be legit freaked out to have that meathook draped over my shoulder.

I’m loving the detail given to the collar of our simply mysterious billboard renter.

  4. If this is Bobby Howry – class of 2015, I think – what’s he doing wearing bifocals in P2? That’s kind of extreme for a college senior.

  5. I just now noticed that splendid question mark. This post has now been tagged ‘fontastic’. That is all.

  6. Not necessarily, Philip. I had to wear bifocals in 8th grade. It also could be some sort of light angle implication, too.

  7. The hoser renting billboards has reminded me of Bobby Howry from his first appearance. As Han Solo said in the trash compactor, I have a bad feeling about this.

  8. It’s not a question mark – They’re going to clamp down on mediocrity!

  9. That’s a clamp? I thought it was a micrometer.

  10. […] Milford or watching Filion having me time in his bedroom, we’ll get some minor focus on “scrawny,” “lanky” center Marcell Irby (thanks to whom I can’t stop thinking of […]
