We all shook our judgemental heads when Jermaine Pennant became the first professional footballer to play a Premiership match while wearing an electronic tag. There were boos and jeers from the terraces as he took to the pitch in 2005 for Birmingham City after being convicted and jailed for a drink driving offence.
What we forgot was that electronic tag or no, Jermaine Pennant still had to go to work. Footballers have a reputation for brawling in bars and clubs and crashing expensive motorcars, so it’s no surprise that many of these working class lads sometimes have a tendency to go off the rails.
This photo of American glamour model Laeann Amos (censored by me) was recently posted to TwitPic via Twitter by @KemoDaTruth. It was quickly removed but not before I made a copy, for professional reasons of course. Ahem.
Behind the glamorous façades, the exquisite make-up and luxurious haute couture it can be so very easy to forget that a lot of these girls are more road than Google Maps. Which is why it was an eyebrow raiser to see this image.
I wasn’t shocked by its soft pornography, oh lord no – I used to be a fan of this chick (though not ever having known her name until now). No, I was rattled by the electronic tag she’s wearing. I mean, is this life?
In all honesty, I’m not so big a fan that I follow the lives of glamour models, I barely follow the personal lives of anybody famous actually, but I had no idea she had gone to prison as the tweet below suggests. Fair enough, life gets in the way of our best laid plans and any one of us could end up with an electronic tag somehow. I suppose.
So yeah, a girl’s gotta work, I get it. But damn! Couldn’t she at least get them to airbrush the tag out? You know, the way they did with her excess fat, stretch marks and uneven tones? Or is that the point?
I’m still shaking my head. What kind of world are we living in when men have to jerk off looking at images of airbrushed ex cons? Brings a whole new meaning to jail bait, doesn’t it? KMT
