HOBOES PUSHING INK


Literal Tramp Stamp

DREGBOY steps forward with a "Literal Tramp Stamp."

WHILE THIS LEAVES ME SPEECHLESS, and it obviously deserves recognition, as Dregboy has ruined his life,

I DO NOT ENCOURAGE YOU PEOPLE TO GET TATTOOS.

EVEN IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING GETTING A TATTOO OF MY ENTIRE BOOK, you should not do it, as I do not wish to answer to your parents, spouses, and physicians.

AT LEAST DREGBOY did not get a tattoo of my face.

That is all.

this brings a few questions to mind...

Would a tattoo of your whole book constitute some sort of infringement or would it fall under Fair Use?

Is a tattoo in itself considered satire?

Do you think it very wise to suggest your face as a tramp stamp? There are obviously some impressionable young minds out there.

I think that depends upon whose butt we'd have to stare at to read chapter 12...

At least it wasn't in Ye Olde Englishe.

As your book may overtake other books on a bookshelf, would a tattoo of your whole book eventually overtake the whole individual? This would leave many in a precarious situation as "Paper" is generally not a recognized ethnicity for census data.

A tattoo of your face, eh? That's not a bad idea...

Does this pictogram indicate that his body is a friendly respite for hoboes?

Communicating with hoboes using their internal lexicon should be done with caution, as they may mistake you for one of their own.

I've actually been planning on getting this very tattoo, only not on my torso. My name does begin with an H, after all. :-P

That's weird. The other day I was actually thinking that the H with rays would make a cool tattoo. I won't get one though.

Good thing I'm broke.

....wait.

Well I myself think your ink is rather rad.. But I dunno I have never gotten a tattoo due to my religion.. They say that you are not allowed to put ink on yourself, it is a body of which the one above has given you so it is to not be harmed or played with in any way.. Plus the real reason that really pushed me away from it was the fact that I have children and if anything were to happen g-d forbid then with no tattoo's I will be able to donate my blood to them if ever needed.. Hey guys, dont we all have to look at reality?
