How My Friend Became A Mini-Meme


In September 2016 my friend Michael had to renew his passport. Afterwards, in his own cool, cheeky and inimitable style, he committed the account of the all important photo-taking to Facebook… like this…

“The “Passport Renewal Photo Roulette” game. You make sure you weren’t drinking the night before, you scrub yourself up, shave, slap on some moisturiser, dab a bit of hairwax on the noggin and think “Shit yeah, I look good”…and then you sit down in the photo booth, follow the instructions “not to smile, not to grimace, not to look up, or down, or sideways”….so you spin the wheel and there you are, for some fucking reason the gods have decided “NO….YOU DO NOT LOOK LIKE THAT”….and you are doomed for the next 10 years to look like “Igor Bollockoff, AKA “The Huge Head from Hungary”, wanted in six countries across the Balkans for kitten trafficking and crimes against vegetables”. Another 10 years of laughter from immigration control officers ahead. Great.”
 

Here is his photo.
