Oh, I'll bet there's a picture of that kid somewhere in blackface!

"No, wait, you don't understand, my father worked in a COAL MINE and I used to bring him his lunch!"

All kidding aside, aren't we *all* guilty of doing some dumb shit or other when we were kids? Even if it wasn't blackface, there's probably something *somewhere*.

I kept wondering, If I were famous or a politician, what would people dig up on *me*? I kept thinking and thinking of my college years - that's where I did all my dumb shit since I was too unpopular in high school to have the kind of friends we could do dumb shit together with, and all I could think of was this stupid photo taken of me at the Kent State Gay/Lesbian Foundation Halloween party, dressed as a Playboy bunny.

Honestly, the most scandalous thing about it is...I was 21, should have been the height of my sexual attractiveness and...I was a really unremarkable-looking college student with a terrible figure. Queen of the Dorks.

But I finally remembered something the other day and the light bulb flashed over my head. It was one of those Flipflash flashes, remember those? - from the '70s and early '80s. I remembered it. The dumbshit thing I did in 1983 with someone else that, if someone dug up the picture, I might get fired one day.

No, I wasn't in blackface...but what we did was singularly tasteless. Mostly the stuff we *said*.

Not gonna tell anyone what it was. It's kind of embarrassing now.

And fortunately, we took no photos that night.
