That was more uncalled-for than ten dogs.
   2. Yeaarrgghhhh Posted: July 20, 2010 at 06:06 PM (#3594246)
Is that really him? It looks like an extra from "Zombieland."

I knew it, he's a Sith Lord!

Never had any opinion of his performance.

Gah!
   6. Greg Goosen at 30 Posted: July 20, 2010 at 06:25 PM (#3594266)
What do I think of Lasorda's photograph? What kind of a bleep question is that?
   7. Swedish Chef Posted: July 20, 2010 at 06:26 PM (#3594271)
Gah!

You stole my line!

If there ever was a picture that begged to be hidden behind the jump, this is the one.

I am hopeful that "Closeup of Lasorda" can become:

a) a BTF meme
b) part of a few handles
c) an alternative "Albright"

   11. Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Griffin (Vlad) Posted: July 20, 2010 at 06:57 PM (#3594300)
Oh, God, it's looking right at me!
   12. ChuckO Posted: July 20, 2010 at 07:01 PM (#3594304)
Thanks, guys! Now I have to go out and buy a new monitor!
   13. Dale Sams Posted: July 20, 2010 at 07:27 PM (#3594339)
Is that a shambling Lasorda or one of the fast ones that move at 12 frames per second?
   14. Gonfalon Bubble Posted: July 20, 2010 at 07:29 PM (#3594345)
Jesus Christ, I mean, that's a tough photo to show me, isn't it? Jesus Christ.

   15. Gamingboy Posted: July 20, 2010 at 07:35 PM (#3594355)
The resemblance between Lasorda and Egg Fu are uncanny....
   16. Dale Sams Posted: July 20, 2010 at 07:42 PM (#3594361)
Are you serious? They re-vamped Egg Fu? What's next? The 6-issue PLOP! mini-series written by Alan Moore?
   17. Yeaarrgghhhh Posted: July 20, 2010 at 07:47 PM (#3594370)
We don't get a lot of opportunities to use "burn it with fire" and "take off and nuke it from orbit, it's the only way to be sure" on this site.

"It mostly comes out at night...mostly."

I'd do him if he took out those false teeth. In related news, [g]ummer than 10 dogs.
   20. Never Give an Inge (Dave) Posted: July 20, 2010 at 09:03 PM (#3594453)
That looks like a wax sculpture of Tommy Lasorda.
   21. You Know Nothing JT Snow (YR) Posted: July 20, 2010 at 09:16 PM (#3594463)

Looks like Humpty Dumpty from Fables.
   22. Gonfalon Bubble Posted: July 20, 2010 at 09:45 PM (#3594493)
Looks like MODOK's yummier cousin.
   23. BFFB Posted: July 20, 2010 at 10:02 PM (#3594510)
"Braiiiinnnnnssss...."
   24. The elusive Robert Denby Posted: July 21, 2010 at 12:49 AM (#3594599)
Looks like Clayface with a Dodgers hat.
   25. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: July 21, 2010 at 01:29 AM (#3594617)
I guarantee you he just won that belching contest.

"It mostly comes out at night...mostly."


What's this from again?
   27. Josh1 Posted: July 21, 2010 at 02:11 AM (#3594656)
We finally have a replacement for the Reno picture.
   28. Chris Needham Posted: July 21, 2010 at 02:20 AM (#3594666)
I thought it looked like the fake woman disguise that Arnold uses in Total Recall. Look out! She's got a bomb!
   29. Cuban X Senators Posted: July 21, 2010 at 03:09 AM (#3594703)
Who's the wise guy that photoshopped an ass onto his neck?
   30. bobm Posted: July 21, 2010 at 03:19 AM (#3594714)
“That sounds fine, Sash. I’m looking to get together this week. I’m thinking Thursday late afternoon. I’ve got to get home to the wife for dinner.”

Top Ten Least Favorite Links on YouPorn: "Closeup of Lasorda"
   32. Gonfalon Bubble Posted: July 21, 2010 at 11:50 AM (#3594875)
What would a Tommy Lasorda porn video be titled? "Dodger Blew"? "Sixty Feet, Ten Inches"?

THAT'S IT!! I knew it reminded me of something but I couldn't put my finger on it
