Head of Rob Ford Lazily Placed on Body of Eddie Gaedel

I recently Photoshopped the head of Toronto mayor Rob Ford — who’s better known in proper circles as “Melvin Nosotros Good Times” — onto the body of famed baseball halfling Eddie Gaedel. I surveyed my work and thought it stupid.

But then David G. Temple, the handsome Muay Thai expert with wind-swept hair and a far-off look in his eye, posted some Photoshoppage of a pizza on top of Tropicana Field. Upon viewing Mr. Temple’s contributions, I thought, “My dumb work has been sanctioned.”

Here, then, is Toronto mayor Rob Ford’s head sloppily placed on Eddie Gaedel’s body:

Melvin Nosotros Good Times

At this point, the reader will note that, unlike Mr. Temple and his post, I can scarcely be bothered to construct a false meta-narrative around my lousy photo. For I am Dayn Perry, practitioner of lassitude.

In the interest of redemption, though, I leave you with one of the sky-scraping tweets of our century — one that carries with it the whiff of our baseball …

This is unrelated to my mayor’s heroics, but I would like to inform the notgraphs community that through the wonderful website “gizoogle,” they can access “basebizzle statistics n’ analysis” in a much more “OG” and therefore preferable fashion. http://www.gizoogle.net/xfer.php?link=http://www.fangraphs.com/&sa=U&ei=_M2DUuitDorY7AbU4oCIDA&ved=0CBkQFjAA&usg=AFQjCNFZHGDgpBKFukhaKNU2cinCeg2zjw

Jesus Christ. I thought it was spam, and then awesome happened:

“But then Dizzy G. Temple, tha thugged-out Muay Thai expert wit wind-swept afro n’ a gangbangin’ far-off look up in his wild lil’ fuckin eye…”

Also, as the resident Torontonian (outside of half your damn writing staff,) the bobbleheads are spectacular.

I lost it when I saw the tag Pimp instead of hero.
