"Let Me Ask You Something...."

"Does this look right to you?"
















I found this picture in an old photo album of mine. This was taken in 1977 and is a picture of my twin brother and me with our "swim coach".

There are so many things wrong here. Let's forget the speedos. That's a whole other bag of issues.

I ask you. Would YOU let your children play in a pool with this man? Holy crap. I'm calling my parents right now to give them a piece of my mind.

Well you weren't really a swimmer unless you rocked the speedo. You were a serious swimmer if you wore 2 of them at the same time. Very nice picture. Your parents should here about this.

Um. Your coaches speedo is a little threadbare.

The line between a speedo and a pair of bike shorts is very very thin.

Just sayin.

Dug, stick to yer baggies.

The matching speedos are U. S. Awesome. You're superheros. Well, except for the being held by an older, also speedo'ed guy.

Best photo I've seen in a long time.

This certainly explains the personal space issues. I had no idea.

You have to admit, he is pretty hot. The beard is amazing.

Are you rubbing oil on his chest?

Rick Sunderlage said...

Aaron- That would be Rob. I'm the much better looking boy on the right.

OMG the comments on this post need to be a post in themselves. Hilarious. I gagged on my coffee with Aaron's oil comment. Classic.

2The fact that there are now something wrong with this photograph shows that Americans have gotten more and more stupid. When this photo was taken, nobody cared because everybody was simply wearing a swimsuit.

Nowadays, because it is a speedo, there are all kind of insinuations of inappropriateness.
