original caption attached to his picture reads “One
of these guys has a butt-plug in. Guess which one.”
it’s the maniacal grin, the bugged-out eyes, the ridiculous
yellow cotton-candy Mohawk. Maybe it’s the fact that all of
the other band members look like unremarkably standard-issue frat
dudes. Maybe it’s all of the above. Whatever it is, picking
out the butt-plug user is fairly simple. It’s got to be “The
has become something of an unofficial mascot for RRC. The quintessential
douchebag, as it were. The douchebag by which all other douchebags
we began scouring the World Wide Web for douchebags, we ransacked
so many websites it was impossible to keep track of what picture
came from which site. Our methods were haphazard, but simple: Find
a site, get to the photo section, find a good picture and get the
“Rippling Water” effects, the letters spelling the band’s
name following our cursors around or, God forbid, the interminable
Flash intro. By the time RRC launched last year, whichever website
we pilfered TMG’s image from was lost in the ether and the
picture had been assigned a typically nondescript file name: “g4.jpg”
as RRC’s one-year anniversary approaches, we thought it would
be a hoot to find out just who the man behind the mohawk is. Well,
taken literally, that would be the guy behind TMG in the picture,
but you know what we mean. That’s where you come in. Do you
know TMG? Have you seen his band? Did you play soccer with him?
Wait tables with him? Play in a band with him? We want to know his
us what you know about The Mohawk Guy by dropping us a line here.
And be prepared to prove it, too. We've been faked out enough in
the past, thank you very much. Hopefully, we’ll be able to
do a profile on him in time for our gala one-year anniversary celebration.
to a bunch of you, The Mohawk Guy has been located. In fact, TMG
himself wrote us a nice email. The email was promptly lost, so TMG,
if you're out there, drop us another line. Turns out our man TMG
is yet another St. Louis musician. His original Daily Douchebag
shot is of an old band. He has since parted ways with said band
and continues to make music despite the fact that he is married.
TMG contacts us (again), we'll do a full-scale profile on him.
readers wrote in offering help in our Mohawk Guy hunt. When it was
all over, we'd heard from half of St. Louis and TMG himself. So,
what's the story with our favorite douchebag?
just call him TMG since he’s a family man and all. As we mentioned,
TMG lives in St. Louis. The infamous "butt-plug" picture
was taken of an old ska band of his several years ago. Of all of
the emails we got regarding TMG, not one contained negative word
about him. He is, by all accounts, a swell dude. We finally heard
from him a few weeks back. Sadly, his email was lost due to a short
caused by a buildup of manbatter on the RRC computer. His email
is paraphrased from memory as follows:
guys have the greatest website in the history of the Internet. I
am honored to be a part of it. As you may have already heard, I
am a musician living in St. Louis. I am married with a child and
play in a punk band called BetterHalf. As I said, your site is comedy
genius and people should send you money and naked pictures.
yeah, send me some money for using my image all over your site,
ya cheap fucks.
there you have it. Anticlimactic? Absolutely. Pointless? You betcha.
Fun? Sort of.
tuned for the next Douchebag Hunt. Maybe we'll try to find "Soccer
