Our Favorite Rick Perry Mugshots


Now, we're not sure if you live on the moon, under a rock, or under a rock on the moon, but you probably noticed Rick Perry handed himself in yesterday to face his indictment on felony charges for abuse of power. If you've ever heard of a thing called "Twitter," you may also have noticed that Rick had a mugshot, or more accurately a smugshot, in which he tried to look as if the charges mean nothing to him. It was, of course, a perfectly Rick Perry thing to do. He then went out for ice cream, which is amazing.

Do you think the internet is going to let a mugshot picture of Rick Perry go unmolested? Then you, my friend, do not know the internet. Here are some of our favorites.

One of Rick's complaints was that he wasn't allowed to wear his glasses for his mugshot. Twitter saw to that.

In fact, Twitter really dealt with that, helping Rick try on new glasses.

What's more Texan than Rick Perry with a corn dog? All he needs to complete the Texan-ness is an assault rifle.

The fame he's always craved.

We think blue hair suits you, Rick.

The princess he's been looking for is in another castle.

There's a long explanation for this one.

The happiest Rick's ever been?

Still the champ.

When will we get to see Jack Stick's mugshot? You know the Deputy Inspector General for Enforcement who got arrested for DWI two years ago and has been avoiding his court date since then? The same guy who refused a field sobriety test because his pants were rippling in the breeze? 


Lest we not forget how he failed forward and resigned as a municipal judge... 



Remember, Rick Perry is innocent until proven stupid, folks. That's why he's fighting the charges, tooth-and-nail. As he pled: "I is not...What were the charges again?"


@iowahawkblog said it best
"If I were Rick Perry, I would have worn a t-shirt with Rosemary Lehmberg's mugshot for my mugshot."

Looks like a pre-schoolers art show, and the GQ cover, while technically acceptable, would be more sensical if centered on Illinois, indicted governors don't gather in herds in Texas.

Why are so many Repuglycans so damn corrupt and dishonest?

IS the shirt with his mugshot an offshoot of the guy who showed up to jail with a pic of his own mugshot on his shirt?

@TheRuddSki They would if we didn't have to wait 14 years to indict.

Illinois (my new home, btw) elects, indicts, repeats.

Is this part of the "iceberg" of crime he's guilty of?

How does it compare to this breaking news:

"President Obama violated a “clear and unambiguous” law when he released five Guantanamo Bay detainees in exchange for Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, the Government Accountability Office reported Thursday."

That's gotta upset you, eh?


@ScottsMerkin That's Ryan Gosling. He and the kid from Home Alone were wearing shirts with each other's faces.

I only know this because Lady Friend reminds me...every...day.


@ScottsMerkin I think it's the Ryan Gosling/Macaulay Culkin thing where they wore t-shirts with pictures of each other wearing t-shirts with pictures of each other, etc. You can Google it if you still give a shit, but I wouldn't recommend it.

Perp-walks are to Chicago as Stockyards longhorns are to Cowtown.

Yuck, skin it first.

That's where they keep the convicted public officials, so they won't influence or endanger the inmates at Cook County Jail.
