Workin' The Merkin


I couldn't wait for the first Hugh Johnson Update to get this up. What you see above, courtesty of Longhorn Nation, is a sign that accuses Lee Corso of wearing a "merkin." A merkin, for the uninitiated, is... well, I'll let Wikipedia explain:

A merkin is a pubic wig, worn by prostitutes after shaving their genitalia to eliminate lice or to disguise the marks of syphilis. There are many different ways of wearing a "Merkin" although most involve placing the merkin on the vulva or the scrotum.

Whew. This is all new to me... I'm a little shaken up. All this time, I've been visiting prostitutes that didn't even have the common decency to wear a goddamn merkin. I demand a refund.

I've got this image in my head of Corso, in his ESPN trailer, with his makeup assistant helping him put on his merkin. "Oh, there you go. What is that, crazy glue? Not so fast, my friend. There... a little left. Bingo. Let me see a mirror. Oh, damn, Lee... damn you look good."
