There aren't any words. (There are, but none are appropriate for this forum. The picture speaks for itself.)

So after a couple years they still cant accept what the ruling was? I must say, what a turn out.

I'd like to go ahead and invoke my "Wow, just wow" reactionary right.

I guess some people just get stuck in life.  Kinda like this guy.

vacuuming sucks

At least he's still tucking his T-shirt into his jeans.
And what's he calling from, a walkie talkie?

Did I hear a niner in there?

Columbus to Pasadena: 35 hours.  We're on a road trip through the desert looking for strippers and cocaine... and Rose Bowl wins!

I bet if we could see his ankles his jeans are French rolled.

Does this story involve tacos?

Hovenaut's picture

By the looks of that crowd, I'd say more along the lines of baked casserole.

Colby3333's picture

Why yes it does.  Considering the smiles on their faces, I'm guessing fish tacos.

Well if there's one thing we've learned in the last few years about Penn State its that they have a different definition of truth than the one that is universally accepted. To them, its "The version of a story that best supports our idealized opinion of a guy who coached football games".

Do I come off as arrogant? Shame on me, I was hoping it would more obvious.

Kind of curious if Ms. R is single...

Awesome Ozymandias reference.  You're spot on.  Everything that JoePa built is gone gone gone.

So, who is "U" and why is he a cardboard cutout?

Scarlet_Lutefisk's picture

It's Paterno. The cardboard cutouts of him have become a popular talisman among the 'truth & evidents!' crowd. Franco Harris drags one along wherever he goes.

 

Earle's picture

He looks incredibly life-like.  Much more so than, say, his last 10 years on the sidelines.

Italics are for emphasis.

Scarlet_Lutefisk's picture

I still say Joe Pesci would have been a much better choice to play him in the movie.

Where is the guy in the chair's hand? 

BuckeyePoetLaureate's picture

I don't know who U is, but I was confused by the "409" signs.  Does Paterno have anything to do with cleaning fluid or something?
It can't be his win total; he only had 394 wins.

Of course that's Joe's win total, the police waited until #409 was in the bag before they arrested Sandusky, don'tcha know?

There is never a random "streaker" around when you need one. A naked guy wearing an Emmert mask would be perfect.

There's an accounting prof (Teri Z.) at OSU who has the JoePa cut out and she always busts it out during OSU/PSU game week. She's PSU undergrad, OSU masters I think.  Hard teacher, but learned a lot from her.
Anyway, I hope that life size Joe Pa made its way to a bonfire 

ShowThemOhiosHere's picture

Still?  Wow. 

Class of 2010.

BTBuckeye's picture

In 2006-7 timeframe, not sure if she still has it or not. She used to bring it into the class room. Everybody had fun with it, wasn't really a big deal at the time. I think she kept it in her office the entire year.

BuckeyePoetLaureate's picture

I wonder if she turned the standup around so JoePa can look the other way again.

Ouch. Well played, sir.

For sure. I mean who doesn't love shuffleboard, euchre, cataracts, and men who turn a blind eye to child abuse.

My thoughts exactly. Great minds & all...

I heard this from the organizer of the picket, "Let's pay tribute to JoePa, everyone on three, poop your pants."

The second best moment from 2006 PSU game (first of course being Troy's legendary TD pass).

We can't stop here; this is bat country...

Scarlet_Lutefisk's picture

According to the Paterno loyalists it never happened. The footage was doctored.
I kid you not, that is what they actually claim.

BuckeyePoetLaureate's picture

On one hand, I have trouble chuckling at the prospect of an elderly man suffering from irritable bowels.  On the other hand, he had no problem looking the other way while Sandusky caused prepubescent boys to have irritable bowels.
