On June 19, 2008, I wrote a post that made fun of people highlighted in a CNN article about being too tattooed to work in the United States. Some of you out there took offense. I hear you.
No, really: I hear you. I hear you in emails, in comments (new ones today), on the riverboats where I play high stakes video poker … I’m sick and tired of hearing you.
I even pretended to take your side on November 26, but nobody bought it. You got me: I was being funny again.
You keep telling me that you’re upset that I could be so discriminatory. Well, I think you’re all talk, Internet tattoo people.
In response to the latest bout of me-bashing in the threads (by a Christian, no less!), I’ve thrown down the gauntlet and issued a challenge:
If you can show me one (1) photograph that proves there is a non-tattooed prisoner on Death Row …
I will get a tattoo. And I will publish it on this site.
And on your web site, too, if you have one, proving to your friends how smart and influential you are (despite your ink).
I will seriously do this. So show me what you’re made of, painted ladies and gentlemen of the Internet.
Again, I am serious. That’s what I do: I’m a SeriouslyGuy.
Email all pics (like they exist!) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure you tell me who’s in the picture and what they’re in for. I will also post this up on our Web site to show you bested me.
Note: Do NOT send me pictures of tattooed professionals or super-nice people, trying to prove that not everyone who has tattoos is evil. We all know there are a lot of stupid nice people out there, and tattoos are really popular right now. Just like Britney Spears.
