Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, August 19, 2014

Smoking Gun: In a marvelously meta moment, a 19-year-old last week posed for a jail booking photo while wearing a T-shirt with a reproduction of the mug shot taken of him after a June arrest for drunk driving. A coworker of Burt's at a Pittsfield restaurant created a shirt with a reproduction of the booking photo taken following his mid-June arrest. The T-shirt photo was captioned "Burt Family Reunion 8/8-8/10/2014" and "sponsored by Bud Light and Somerset County Sheriff."

Burt, who happily wore the orange shirt for his jail photo, subsequently wrote on Facebook that corrections officers made him hold the slate in a way "so you could see the shirt." He added, "They laughed there asses off haha."

It's not for a web redemption though.
I hope this kid manages to get a little publicity out of it though, because I don't think his future looks bright...

The publicity is sure to help his business of selling crappy weed in bags that don't weight what he claims they do.

Only a dirty Irishman would think that's funny.

There's no way that skinny little derelict can be described as anything remotely resembling a 'THUG'. You must be a tiny boy, Donner, if you're frightened by Burt.

I didn't think size mattered to you clowns. Only color.

Frankly, i am APPALLED Budweiser participated in this publicity stunt, as if DWI is a laughing matter. (A 2nd photo too low to be captured by mugshot camera is of a cat sitting next to a bottle of Bud.)

i'm not sure this tops the mugshot of the blond dreamboat thug with teardrop facial tattoo a month or two ago. That one went viral cross-country with proposals of marriage.

Maybe we should start arresting anyone who wears a photo of their own mug shot with pride.

Sorry, but I still prefer the classic James Brown and new classic Rick Perry mugshots. Two peas in a pod...

i'm not sayin' the King of Soul didn't deserve to be arrested, but he ain't a pea in Rick Perry's pod! i did not see the latter's mug shot YET. Here's hopin' against hope this helps Wendy Davis in Nov!

#14: I don't know Kenx, if the rumors are true that he had an affair with a teenage intern and got her pregnant and an abortion, he'll take all the democratic votes from her in a landslide.

Does anyone remember those M.C. Escher optical illusion drawings?

Maybe, if this fella is arrested a few more times, he can, in his next mugshot, wear a T-shirt showing a picture of him in a prior mugshot wearing a T-shirt showing a picture of him in a prior mugshot wearing a T-shirt showing a picture of him in a prior mugshot wearing a T-shirt showing a picture of him in a prior mugshot.

He looks pretty darn young. If he doesn't clean up his act, this sort of thing could go on and on into infinity.

#16. Yep, especially the stairs. Here's the one you're referring to, I think: www.google.com
