Scandal washed over the blogosphere today like wildfire over a field of loosely crumpled toilet paper. Danica Patrick, (un)official IRL driver of the BBA (although I’m currently engaged in imaginary negotiations to make her the (un)official IRL driver of TrogloPundit) was…digitally altered in the latest Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
Sports Illustrated apparently had Danica Patrick’s tramp stamp photoshopped out of her recent photo spread in the Swimsuit issue. While you may debate whether her ink should be considered a “tramp stamp”, since the tattoo is a relatively classy depiction of an American Flag being morphed into a checkered flag, the fact still remains that it is missing from the photos posted online.
I know what you’re thinking: why aren’t I posting pics of a bikini-clad Danica, so you can compare the actual, tattooed version, to the airbrushed, tattoo-less version yourself?
Because, here at TrogloPundit, we respect Danica as a person and an athlete. You bunch of troglodytial lumps. That’s why. Plus, I really hate airbrushed pictures. And anyway, you can click on Gunaxin’s link to see them.
