With The Fringe On Top: Most Entertaining and/or Disturbing Image of 2009


We use a lot of graphics here at FFFF, and some of them are entertaining and some even a bit, well, disturbing. To recognize the more engaging pictures on our site we nominate the following in the category of Most Entertaining and/or Disturbing Image of 2009.

Can someone please open a window?

1. Matthew J. Cunningham, who actually posted this picture of himself on his own blog. We borrowed it often and mercilessly.

Suddenly I was on the floor looking up at Officer Rubio.

2. From the News Tribune’s ace reporting about Chief McKinley’s vest, we present Officer Rubio. Say, Rube, can you get a matching handbag for that?

Nothing says "screw you" like a beer bottle in the face.

3. This gem was mined from a youtube clip showing the confrontation of CBS/KCAL reporter Dave Lopez and our old pal Dick Ackerman. The gift that keeps giving!

4. 2006 Miss Fullerton & Don Bankhead. She would soon trade in her tiara for a set of brass knuckles.

Bon appetit!

5.This tasty little morsel was served up in the final post about the City Lights SRO debacle. It is now a staple in the Dick Jones pantry.

6. Here’s a family portrait of Papuan Highlands Headman B’rni (Barney) Wewak, a foreign exchange student at Troy High School in 1974. We have been favored with several posts by Barney in 2009 and look forward to more in the year ahead.

7. Finally, we round out our nominees with this image of Jan Flory, my former mistress. I wish she had always been in such a good mood. We gave her cooking sherry for Christmas.

    All of these are great but Mr. Wewak will always hold a special place in my heart.

    Yes, that use of the Jerbal picture was pretty merciless – to those of us who had to look at it. You’ll be sad/glad to learn he has recently put up a new picture of himself. A major accomplishment for FFFF. Now please for the love of God quit using that pic.

    The Cunningham pic used on Orange Juice Blog with the whiskers is the best

    Hey, where’s my picture of the morphed Linda/Dick Ackerman? Ghastly!

      Yeah that was highly disturbing but we would never consider copyright in-Fringe-ment. Well, almost never.
