Local Man

Back in May of 2003, I had the brief and glorious indignity of being Local Man—that is, a picture of my head was Photoshopped into one of someone else’s torso (and gross sweater, and kitchen, and Gene Kelly poster, etc.) for the illustration for the article “Local Man Ruins Date By Just Being Himself.” At the time, the piece seemed to disappear pretty quickly, but not only is it still on the Onion Web site, here, I was delighted to discover the other day that it is also on pg. 135 of Fanfare for the Area Man: The Onion Ad Nauseam Complete News Archives, Vol. 15.
