LINC'D: The Ballad of DeShawn and Abe
I almost don't want to write my standard two paragraphs for this particular post. I just want people to bask in the fact that DeShawn Stevenson (he's the one on the right) has a tattoo of Abraham Lincoln on his Adam's apple. Not his neck, his Adam's apple. Recognize the bravery, courage, and both the physical and mental fortitude that took. I dare you to get a former U.S. president's face permanently inked just below yours. I promise, it's a tough look to successfully pull off. You don't just see people walking around with Grover Cleveland forever on their voice box.
I'm not joking about this either. Normally, these write-ups are sarcastic and superfluous, but that first paragraph was me being serious. Honest, even. That tat has fascinated me since the first time I saw it. I said to myself that one day, when I am grown and can handle such responsibility, I will pen a picture worthy of that presidential neck ink. And so I did. And it is now DeShawn Stevenson's twitter background. Mission accomplished.
Super Bowl Beyonce. Because that is now an entirely different Beyonce.
