Portrait of the Author as a Young Dork

Gizmodo is running a great contest asking for a scanned photo of readers “looking like the biggest dork in the world at age 10-18.”

Yes, I owned a thin tie with piano keys on it. Yes, I had parachute pants. But maybe I’m too close to this to judge.

What do you think? Should I enter? Be honest.


No, really. Be honest.

    YES. You must enter. This photo is too classically dorky to let fade into oblivion.

    John — you are a fool if you don’t enter! btw, what does the t shirt say? And, you would clearly win if you could include a mp3 of some original music by your old garage band…

    If you don’t enter this, someone will do it for you.
