I challenge someone to post a picture of someone with a less symmetrical face. Cover the left and it looks like one person, cover the right and it looks like another. Mind BLOWN!

Thanks for the challenge, Christopher.

Here's my entry: (I think he was arrested for "huffing" paint - not sure, though)

Update on my "guy", Christopher. Though the paint on his face was the reason for the initial "Terry Stop", a quick investigation revealed he fit the description of a person detailed in a BOLO (Be On the LookOut).

He was arrested, and charged with, being a "masher" - one who "makes unwelcome sexual advances, often in public places and typically to women he does not know."

According to a local court reporter, at his arraignment, he told the judge, "I even have "eyes" for your daughter, your Honor!"

According to the reporter, the judge stood up, leaned over his bench, and said, "I'll see that you "fry" for that comment, sir!"

As he was being dragged out of court, he supposedly shouted over his non-existent shoulders, "I'm being framed for this crime. I have an alibi. I was with my girlfriend, PAM, all week."
