I was going through some old photos and junk that I had scanned, and I found this clipping which Scott had found in the military newspaper, The Stars & Stripes, when we were in Iraq. It's horribly funny in so many wrong ways that I wanted to share it with the world. I mean, look at the expression on that kid's face. WOW! He seems to be thinking. This colon is the shit! And what's that stuff on the sides of the colon wall? Too much detail perhaps? And who thought this was a good picture to print? How will that kid ever live a normal life? Ketchikan is small, and I'm sure his friends will never let him forget this. "Hey Ryan, remember that time you crawled through a giant asshole, thought it was awesome, and then had your picture in the paper?" Who built the COLOSSAL colon in the first place? Who thought it was a good idea to make an ass cavity into a fun thing for kids to crawl through? I mean, I'm all for education, and the more that people understand their bodies and health and all that, the better. But I mean come on, this borders on the depraved. And then they printed it on the front page of the US Military's self-propaganda machine.
Anyway, these are the same questions that ran through my mind when I first saw it, and it's nice to know that you can bury something like this in a drawer, find it years later, and be knocked on your ass by it all over again.
