A Legend Never Dies: Bonus...Spring Fashion

For those who follow many different sites and even the Jimmy Kimmel show the name Henry Earl might ring a bell. Henry is Lexington's town drunk, for lack of better terms. He as been jailed nearly 1000 times [SINCE THE SYSTEM WENT ONLINE]. There is no real record as to how many times he has actually been arrested, nor how many times he has been jailed.

FARK.COM posted up the Lexington Jail website where you could checkout his various mugshots but the site got so slammed they requested we quit posting any Henry Earl links.

Well, as I was parking for lunch today who should I see, wandering through Joe Bologna's parking lot but Henry himself, complete with his Spring Collection. Note the bright blue socks AND no shoes. Expect to see that on the runways of Paris by next year.

Henry has his own Wiki Henry Earl - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and, well more

I've got some Japanese socks that make those look plain - black, with "fingers" for each toe, a grey dragon running from ankle to big toe and bright red chinese characters on the little toe

So it turns out that someone stole his shoes yesterday. I didn't get to talk to him as I was just pulling out and had time to take two pics before leaving. Plus, he looks a bit cooked.

So, anticipating he would be back today as Joe's lot is part of his daily route, Henry is now sporting a pair of somewhat worn New Balance Bear shoes. While they are black, and don't quite go with the blue ensemble, they will keep his feet dry as it is getting ready to rain.

For those who did not read the Wiki, just do a google on Henry Earl | Lexington. There are 2400 hits, including his myspace page [assuming a proxy here]

Much like Otis from Mayberry, Henry is pretty harmless. He does a killer James Brown imitation and is pretty much taken care of by the locals.

He was suppose to go on the Jimmy Kimmel show but was, well...detained at the moment. FARK is working on a reschedule.
