aUKward Fan Photos: Chapter 14

I know it’s not politically correct to say Merry Christmas, so I won’t say Merry Christmas to you all. I’ll say Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas because saying Merry Christmas isn’t acceptable anymore.

Welcome to a quick hitting edition of aUKward Fan Photos. There isn’t much to say about this week’s photo. It’s just aUKward, and that’s about all there is to it. It’s a super close up of a guy in big glasses and an awesome hat. And the picture quality is “poor” at best.

It comes from a gentleman named “Mudd.” That’s it. Just “Mudd.”

Mudd writes:

“I’m from Louisville Ky. This was taken when I was in middle school. So probably early 90’s. Always been a big Cats fan and found it in my parents pictures.”

Here you go…

 

This may or may not have been the world’s first “selfie”. The glasses are great, the hat is better, and Mudd looks like the oldest middle schooler I have ever seen.

Thanks to Mudd for passing this along. I encourage you all to look through your parent’s photo albums while you are home for the holidays and send some in. It’ll be your gift to me. Send them to [email protected] or on twitter @AFlenerKSR.

Merry Christmas Happy Holidays to all of you loyal KSR readers. Enjoy the day loving your families tomorrow, unless you have Louisville fans coming to your house. Don’t love them.

I’ll leave you today with my new favorite christmas song. It’s DMX singing “Rudolph.”

    Who says it’s not “Politically Correct” to say “Merry Christmas”?? It’s only incorrect if you let it be. Quit letting the 2% dictate what we can and cannot do or say. Enjoy the Christmas season and keep politics out of it. MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

    Our loving presence
    in the lives of others
    can be like Christmas lights
    shining into the hearts
    of those who dwell in darkness.

    Well put #’s 2 & 3. We have the same right of expression to say Merry Christmas as those who refuse to do so. Go Cats!

    smh…I don’t know where this goofy “war on Christmas” came from, but Aaron you’re not being oppressed. You can say Merry Christmas anytime you like. It’s silly to try and make a political/pc point like this on a UK blog. Funny thing is, if you would’ve just left that out and said a simple “Merry Christmas BBN!”, everyone would have just responded with the same, or Happy Holidays.

    Just give me some UK news (in the most ridiculous manner possible) and leave the political/war on Christmas jargon out. Merry Christmas!

    Are you guys idiots?? Did you not see that in his opening statement he was being ironic? In saying that he wasn’t going to say “Merry Christmas” he actually said it multiple times. I have a hard time believing this was an accident. Happy Holidays everyone!

    Everybody has freedom to express their belief in this country. Why only Christians has to worry about not to offend people? Why they are not offended by Buddhist, Muslim, etc but Christian? If you don’t believe in Christianity, if you think it is a myth, you don’t care what Christians believe. Why do you get offended?
    MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

    16, here is a thought: If the holiday is offensive to you, don’t take the day off. We wouldn’t want people to think you were celebrating the birth of Christ or anything.

    I am agnostic but I celebrate Christmas just the same. A lot of atheist do as well. I say merry Christmas and enjoy this time of year. But I celebrate it for the giving to others and family being together. It has no religious meaning to me at all. I would never be offended by merry Christmas. The author was being sarcastic as well. It amazes me how sarcasm gets by so many people on here. He said merry Christmas at least 5 times.

    To all you conservatives, your days are numbered and then so is christmas. You will never again have a majority. We own all the dependent votes, minority votes, abortion on demand votes, single dumb baby momma votes, etc…You will be extinct along with christmas so get used to it. Hillary in 2016.

    Hey 28 here is a thought. I have taken the last 3 years off on your taxpayin’ dime. So enjoy your one day off and get back to work soon, I need my check! Who is the sucker now? Hillary in 2016. Happy Holidays.

    Hey Rich, what could we say to you to not offend you? Your sensibilities are of the utmost importance to me and all of BBN. How about Happy Holidays as you wished everyone? Do you realize translates into Happy Holy Days. Ill informed and under informed is no way to go through life Rich. So I say to all Merry Christmas and may Jesus Christ epecially touch your heart Richthis Christmas season.
