Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Yesterday, when we received the news that Arnold Schwarzenegger had fathered a child outside his marriage with Maria Shriver, we could not pass up the chance to poke a little fun at the Governator. Did we make fun of his movies? Nope. His accent? Even more juvenile. We went straight for the jugular and posted pictures of his bunchy, Pla-Doh-like body.

Writer Craig Hlavaty couldn't even tell whether they were the best or worst photos of the man. Maybe it was a low blow, but we're happy to see that at least one reader agreed with our logic.

Ms_Pants commented:

He should have a tattoo on his forehead: "Not built to scale."

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
