jitterbugging in a juke joint on Saturday afternoon


I will never in my life be as cool as that man is right there. But what the fuck is up with that cop?

No on earth is as cool as that man. I believe the cop must be his body guard.

Well, it'd be nice to think so.

Maybe he was just getting off duty and he wanted to check out what cool was.

Probably not.

The cop is the only one looking at the camera, and no one is looking at him. Makes me think of the devil in O Brother Where Art Thou

The more I look at this picture, the more I like it.

I want to know what that lady is doing with her hands, they all seem to be watching her hands!

Maybe the person taking the picture is another cop and they are documenting how cool they are. Or maaaaaybe the cop taking the picture is doing it just to get a photo of that lady's fantastic ass and the other cop is in on it.

I think they're all watching her hips. Except the cop, who is watching Ms. Wolcott. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marion_Post_Wolcott

Oh. Ms. Wolcott. Not a cop.

It's Mississippi. You know what the fuck is up with that cop. Racist fucking pig.

downtown guy said...

Yep. I admit, that was pretty much my gut thought.
