Man Gets Romney 'R' Tattooed On His Face

Source: ABC News

Some say that campaign ads are getting just ridiculous. But now it's taken a turn to the truly bizarre. An Indiana man has auctioned off space on the side of his head, where he tattooed Mitt Romney's presidential campaign "R" logo in a 5-by-2-inch spot for a bid of $15, 000.

Eric Hartsburg posted the eBay listing in August, and told ABC News that he was paid $15,000 by a Republican eBay user, who preferred to remain anonymous, to get the Romney logo permanently inked on the side of his head. Hartsburg, who is an Indiana native, told ABC News that he agreed because the tattoo was something that he could live with.

7. It's not "looser."

"Looser" means something that is not as tight. As in my pants are "looser" now that I've lost weight.

It's "loser." As in "Marked for life and for a loser."

52. Looser means something isn't as tight as it should be? Then, he's correct. As in:

"That boy ain't wrapped too tight." I mean, who in the hell take any amount of money to do that to themselves? REALLY?!!

All in support of a hedge fund asshole who wouldn't piss on him if he was on fire.

8. When asked if he would get an Obama tattoo stamped on his forehead..

if requested by the highest bidder, Hartsburg says that was one question he wasn’t prepared to answer.

“No one has ever asked me that,” he said. “That is one question that I wasn’t prepared to answer. But no, no, I would definitely not get an Obama tattoo.”


No, of course not. Because that would just be crazy.

He's already admitted that he's prepared to accept the highest bid to deface his face. (which is already defaced by his face).

wonder if he did it on a bet after too many shots? Either way don't imagine he's gonna love having defaced himself like this, but it's a good warning sign that any thinking female can use to avoid this idiot.

Just how freaking drunk (or brain fart inane) do you have to be to do something like this? For $15k??? You couldn't pay me enough to put the emblem of that douche bag on my body.

***Disclaimer... calling Romney a douche bag is in no way meant to insult other douche bags either living or dead.
