Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

I don’t like my torso face


Everyone knows the worst torso face of all is Iggy Pop’s, and mine certainly isn’t that hideous. Yet, I can’t look at mine without feeling a vague sense of sadness, which is the expression mine conveys. I don’t know what has rendered him so sad. Our life together has been pretty good. I’ve taken decent care of him. I haven’t exposed him to vanity shaving or to painful piercings, regrettable tats, but the way he looks at me with his pout and droopy eyelids, I can’t help feeling guilty.

Oh, why did I ever have to become aware of my torso face? Who was the cruel bastard who first showed me Iggy’s grotesque body-grimace?

Whoever it was, I hope he can’t look himself in the nipples.

    I’m surprised that WP hasn’t blocked your blog because of that picture. As Bill the Cat would say so eloquently, “ACK! THBBFT!”

      Yet there is great pathos in Iggy’s torso as well…

        I think you’re reading too much into his torso … 😉

    I’ve heard some first-hand stories about Mr. Pop that would raise eyebrows in a brothel full of drunken sailors.

    My torso face suffers from hypertrichosis. But so does Sean Connery’s and Pierce Brosnan’s. As long as the ladies don’t complain.
