Man wears mugshot T-shirt to jail 

By George Mathis

Hopefully the jail barber gives him a new haircut.

I like to think of America as a place full of everyday heroes.

Firefighters, teachers, the mailman, the guy driving the ambulance on I-285 during rush hour traffic and the lady that brings me more sweet tea at The Colonnade. All of these and more, in their own way, are heroes.

Then there’s jackanapes like 19-year-old Robert Burt.

Burt, arrested by Maine police in June for DUI, recently turned himself in to serve a 48-hour sentence, The Smoking Gun tells us. For his new booking photo, Burt wore a T-shirt adorned with his June mugshot and the words “Burt Family Reunion” and “sponsored by Bud Light and Somerset County Sheriff.”

The “family reunion” comment refers to another member of the Burt family currently receiving free room and board at the jail.

Police in Maine must have a better sense of humor than those around here.

Burt said the corrections officers made him pose “so you could see the shirt.”

“They laughed there [sic] [posteriors] off haha,” Burt posted on Facebook with no regard for grammar.

Burt, who could probably use a job in social media, proudly posted “I’m out [female dogs]” and declared his most recent mugshot the “best ever.”

He has clearly set a high bar for serial offenders. I can’t wait to see his next effort.

" ... at The Colonnade .. " is it the German lady?  Cause she's nice and all but don't question her about your tomatoes being "mealy" cause she'll set you right. ;)  


Mmm - now I need chicken livers.

Here's another worthless POS that thinks the law doesn't apply to him.

Looking at his stupid haircut and peder-like mustache, it looks like driving drunk hasn't been the only bad decision he's made.

More big government tyranny over an individual's freedumb.


Thanks, Obama.

If he keeps driving under the influence, he'll be wearing it in his coffin. Let's just hope he doesn't hurt anyone else. Only 48 hours for underage DUI. Shame.

Have you read your fellow AJC bloggers work here? Go take a look at the Falcons blogger for a daily dose of 7th grade discourse.

Thanks George, good to get the occasional reminder that all the idiots aren't in Georgia.

Hey George, would you have used that noun to describe a young black male?  Didn't think so.

Not just him. Schultz and Bradley have them all the time too. And the woman who covers entertainment who brags about being a unc grad. I saw two in one short story she did. So yeah it's comical that someone at the ajc would talk about grammar when his co-workers constantly do the same thing.

Do you guys somehow, someway find a way to interject race into every topic?  Is your life so bad that you must post something about race?  I pity you all! Gosh George you got it bad!

Nope he wouldn't have even written an article about it for fear of being called a raaaacist.

Remember.


Just because they make everything about race, they aren't racists. It's libruuuls and blacks who are racists, because they have a problem when these good conservative TrueAmuricans™ bring up race all the time.

@Rory_Bellows @GeorgeMathis @nevrenuftime Which fermenter ... I currently have an Avondale Ale (my Moose Drool clone), American Kolsch (slightly overhopped with Cascade) and an Oktoberfest (my only lager). On tap is another story.

@Rory_Bellows @GeorgeMathis @nevrenuftime I am aware of competition definitions of beer styles, but don't feel compelled to slavishly follow convention. The craft brewing revolution wouldn't have happened if brewers used existing rules as their Bible.
