THE KIND OF MAN CANDY THAT'LL ROT YOUR TEETH

SHANE MacGOWAN OF THE POGUES 
singing the classic hit, "Dirty Old Teeth." 
Facebook
Last week's man-candy was so thoroughly enjoyed by everyone with eyes that I decided to milk it for a few more hits. This one goes out to my beautiful firstborn child, who is nothing like me in any way except that if you saw a photo of both of us at age 23 you'd swear you were looking at the same person. And also she's a titch neurotic, smart as a whip and very quick with a one-liner. But other than that, no. No similarities at all.
(Editor's note: Digressing! Again!
My note: Get your own blog, asshole.)

So anyway, it was Firstborn's birthday last week. And for some ungodly reason that can only have come from her father's end of the gene pool, she is obsessed with The Pogues in general and Shane MacGowan in particular. 
"You know what would have been a nice birthday present?" she asked me at her birthday dinner. "Some Shane MacGowan man candy!"
Well I would do anything for that child. Even this.
So here you go, little one: Man Candy. Feast your eyes.

EDITOR'S NOTE: And now I'm obsessed with him too. Here, for Firstborn's added viewing pleasure, is an entire gallery of Shane MacGowan photos that really captures the essence of his oral horror.
