Favre Look-Alike Wasn't Trying To Fool Anyone By Wearing Favre Jersey Around Green Bay

Remember that guy who went to a Packers practice last week and impersonated a certain No. 4 known for gunslinging photos of his dong via text? His name is Kirk Ermatinger, he's from Ripon, Wis., and a Green Bay television station has caught up with him. Yes, Ermatinger acknowledged, he looks just like Favre and gets mistaken for him all the time. Yes, Ermatinger wore a No. 4 to practice that day because ... well, it just happens to be the only Packers jersey he has, you see.


That people reacted to this? All the Internet's fault. From the NBC26 report:

Kirk Ermatinger from Ripon, [sic] says he was shocked after seeing his picture plastered all over the internet.

Yeah, because who would think a guy who looks just like Favre parading around Green Bay in a Favre jersey, apparently seen signing autographs, could draw any attention? The Internet is so stupid.
