He was from Scotland. Oddly enough. I was totally waiting to toss off some "Duh-Duh, what a loser" caption thing, but his being Scottish humbled me. Those guys are like Texans with brass balls. More after the jump...

Another in our hipster clothing series, we see this specimen jauntily walking along with a Brazilian fanny pack. Top that.

And the match goes to "Sven" a foreign exchange student who stole today's wardrobe from his sponsor family's teenage daughter.

"Meet me at the stick. Yeah, just a stick. It's about 10 feet high and it's long. The flag? Flags are for posers."

"When we said that 'A lucid home/Anecdote settles/In the smear of this corpse' we meant that relationships are hard and take understanding."
