Courtland “Anmost Fanous” Rogers decided to hit up the tattoo parlor once again, and he didn’t disappoint. His new tattoo is supposed to be his skin ripped open (for some reason – I’ll assume a meth fight) to reveal what is really inside him, which is the confederate flag. Before I talk about the flag part, am I the only one who things the bottom ‘tear’ looks like a real beat-up lady part? As a matter of fact, it almost looks like Jonah Hill’s character from Superbad decided to change his drawing of choice and went to work on Courtland’s chest. (If you haven’t seen Superbad, see it, you’ll understand the reference)
So, why would Courtland decide to get a tattoo of a flag that generally represents all that was bad in the early parts of American history? His grandmama told him to of course! According to Jenelle, his grandmother owned the very first railroads in NC which makes Courtland an expert on the Civil War. Even if you gloss over the “owning the first RR” part, which would put his grandmother at around 177 years old, I’m still not sure how that has any impact on Courtland’s knowledge of the war.
I’m not going to get all sanctimonious and start preaching about the meaning of the flag. I understand many people ignore the bad parts of the confederacy and look at “The South” as their own little country with their own little flag representing them. Slavery was a bad time in history but it’s not like the north was innocent throughout the entire ordeal. That said, you have to be a complete dope if you don’t know the controversy surrounding the flag, so to permanently put it on your body is not something I would do. To be fair, this is the same guy who had his girlfriend/wife’s name tattooed on his chest, so it’s not like Courtland is the poster child for intelligent decisions regarding ink.
Side notes: I can only imagine how he got the real scar on his hip. In addition, that red mark is a bruise and not a shaved armpit, right? I think that would be too low to be his armpit, but you can never be too sure.
Anyway, new Teen Mom 2 on tonight. We didn’t blog last time it was on, but we will be recapping and live tweeting tonight, so be sure to follow!
