While my kid brother Eric was in town from England, he called me up and said, “Dan, I just found a few photos in mom and dad’s storage room that you may want to look at.”

“What kind of photos?” I asked him.

“The kind a guy with a blog like yours probably doesn’t want getting out,” he said. Half serious, half joking.

And… turns out he was right. When I next saw him, he handed me a small stack of photographs dating 1996-1999. After having a good laugh over them, I agreed that they were better left hidden and buried.

OR NOT.

In fact, come to think about it… I think you all have earned a good chuckle for the day!

Let’s start with my first two attempts at Photoshopping, circa 1996.

Oh yeah. I was awesome, and I was ripped. The funny thing is, I remember thinking that these Photoshop jobs were really good.

About that same time, my best friend took this awesome photo of me skiing.

Okay… it was actually the middle of July, and we were actually jumping on his trampoline with skis on. Still, posting that online brought me a lot of ladies.

Apparently, over the next couple years, I found that gaping-mouth pictures were my favorite. By a long shot.

I do have to say… I looked dang good with pierced ears. Here comes another awesome shot with them pierced.
