White Like Me

I know this is old news. From a much simpler time and place known as "last week", but I get such a kick out of these before and after pictures of Sammy Sosa.



Sammy, a former giant of a baseball player for those of you not in the know, claims that he had just undergone a "skin rejuvenation" process that left him a bit whiter than he thought he was gonna be.  He says that his skin color has since returned to its' natural pigment.  And that the lighting in the second photo was partially to blame.  Really?

And Michael Jackson never had any "work" done either, right?

Silly celebrities.

Slyde - Wow! You know about his green contact lenses? A semi-sports related story and you know about it? What did you do? Take a day off from being a geek?

Becky - Right. On.

Slyde - Well I see you didn't take a day off from being an ass. Nicely played.

Slyde said...

I wonder if it really is a skin condition they were trying to treat.

I need to read more into this.

white rabbit said...

A lot of rinsing of bodily cavities going on in these comments...

Slyde - if you are going to force yourself to keep "comming" here, you can at least try to pay attention to the dotted red line under your misspelled words in the comment section. Thanks!

Savannah - It was sometime last week at the Latin Grammy Award, I believe.

Sybil - Eww, is right.

Zibbs - One rumor has his past steroid use causing vitiligo. I dunno.

Wabbit - And I didn't even start it!

B.E. Earl said...

Melanie said...

Elise said...

I don't know what to say. Some people prefer looking like a wax statue. It's entirely up to them... :s

B.E. Earl said...

Mel - Yikes! You went there, eh?

Elise - He looks like someone took talcum powder and poofed it all over him.

needs to look fresh to be Mark McGuire's asst. in St. Lou.

Mrs. Holly Hall said...

Ok, I'll be the first girl to ask, thus being all girly about it.

Now, um, who is Sammy Sosa?

Was he in that South Park episode, the special olympics on when cartman tries to act all retarded but is so fat he totally fails while trying to compete.

But Timmy, eh, I mean JIMMAAYY!!! Uses roids, wins gold medals, and then Mark Mcquire (Sp?) and some other baseball players show up at the award ceremony to congradulate him.

And he admits that he had been using steroids and there is this really long shot when JIMMAAYY!!! rips the players a new one, saying that if they took steroids they need to fess up cause it's not right to win by lying and cheating.

Jebus I leave long comments, gah, BUT did you see that episode? Was Sosa on there?

just curious. ok, maybe i should comment more regularly, I bet the comments would be shorter.

maybe not :)

B.E. Earl said...

Uncool - can you imagine?

Holly - I put a link for Sosa up there for just this purpose. I didn't see the episode, but it was probably Sosa. Maybe Barry Bonds. Sounds about right.

Bruce said...

This may be evolution....the more black people are around white people, the more they 'become' white people......we are a desease....

B.E. Earl said...

Bruce - we must be stopped.

As a Cubs fan...no comment.

B.E. Earl said...

As a Yankees fan...Wow! 1908 was a long time ago! They were back-to-back winners from 1907, though. That's something.

Taking a page from the Michael Jackson playbook, Sammy needs to take a step back and darken it up a bit.
