Photograph of a Leisured Gentleman: An Inuit in Repose

Inuit Man

Look at this Inuit man. Let his face, an etching of curious disdain, deflate your idiotic woes. Study his posture–the quintessence of nonchalance–then mimic it. He won’t mind; he doesn’t even notice you. Do you see his barren homeland? He pays its harshness no regard–a conqueror need not heed the already conquered. He reads, he naps, he pretends to care. He inserts his own name, Ikniqpalaguq, into classic works of literature, or The Saturday Evening Post. He does not give a fuck. He is a leisured gentleman. This man is NotGraphs in the offseason, but way, way better at hunting polar bears.

Zach is an egregious malcontent whose life goal is to literally become the London Tube. @itszachreynolds.

Looks like Trout at the plate, or Kershaw on the mound. Life is good in so Cal baseball.

My grandfather ran the Arctic Chair Co. for decades, and always said that Ikniqpalaguq was a fair-minded and thoughtful man. Knew the value of a good Arctic chair for the discerning Arctic man of leisure. “You put your all into building a good Arctic chair,” he would always say, “and you can count on Ikniqpalaguq’s business.”
