Da (Illustrated) Man

I had to take one of those cheesy online training classes at work. (They make them mandatory because no one would ever sit through them if they had a choice.)  It featured this illustration:

At first glance it appears to be a bald-headed judge in front of a wall that has an illustration of the globe on it. But I think it’s one of those optical illusions, like the famous young woman/old woman visual:

If you look more closely at the judge in the first visual, you realize that instead of being bald, he could be rockin’ the biggest, baddest ‘fro since 1970s baseball player Oscar Gamble.

Oscar had the best hairdo ever in baseball. And his baseball cap had the toughest assignment ever. You can’t control that ‘fro, you can only hope to contain it temporarily.

So thank you, Mandatory Training Class, for helping me think about Oscar Gamble instead of thinking about the topic of the training, which was… I forget.
