This guy? Will keep some blessed woman entertained for life. He very willingly posed for this “I’m in 8th grade” photo. And then offered to pose for some more. Very funny. And this? FishBoy12 was in the local police department’s junior academy this summer and knows what a mugshot looks like. Heavens! Yes, school started […]
