I’ve finally added to my site the highlight of my career as an international fashion model. It’s my ad for Mccormick Tractors for Dutch language farming magazines: Trekkerliefde kent maar Ã?Â??Ã?Â?Ã?Â©Ã?Â??Ã?Â?Ã?Â©n kleur rood
(This actually did appear in European agricultural magazines.)
Note: It’s a PDF file, so you’ll need Adobe Acrobat. And maybe even a sense of humor.

That’s really strange. How’d you get solicited into that? 🙂
Well…..I was contacted by a Dutch advertising agency. They had gotten someone to search through the web for photos of people baring their biceps. Somehow they had found a photo of me on a fishing trip showing off my “ama-gi” (Sumerian for “liberty”) tattoo. They liked it and sent me an email. I glanced at it and thought it was some kind of weird Nigerian-bank-con spam, so I didn’t respond. Then one of the execs called me on the phone and asked if they could use the photo. I agreed, for a huge price, which turned out to be my very own pair of size 45 Dutch wooden sabots (those pointy wooden shoes), which are now sitting on a bookshelf behind me as I type. I didn’t even get to go over and pose in front of a big red tractor. So there you have it. The full truth.
That is hilarious. The internet is a strange and wonderful place- who knows, they could’ve just done a random search on images.google.com.
Actually I was just commenting earlier to my coworkers what a fantastic thing it is- we were having an argument over what a pecan looked like (…) and I was able to pull up a picture in 2 seconds and prove that I was right.
Ok, this is defintely the funniest thing I have seen all day. Classical liberalism is broaching all kinds of new markets it seems….
What I want to know is how they talked you into getting a McCormick tattoo that is so poorly done it looks like it was digitally superimposed. I hope you really do love McCormick Tractors, because that’ll be on your arm for a long time!
So you’ve noticed. Yes, to my shame it is merely digitally superimposed. The real tattoo is the Sumerian word for liberty.
You’ve gotta love the ways people now do business. First they basically google bicep pictures, then they take a picture of you NOT infront of the tractor and than photoshop a tattoo on… but not completely it seems.
No one has stated the obvious, which is “Dude, you are hot!”
You probably already know that you are a god among the women who attended IHS summer seminars back when the ratio of men to women was 98:1. I STILL meet IHS alumna who say, when the topic inevitably arises, “it broke my heart to learn that Tom Palmer wasn’t even interested in women.” I fared well enough with my own classical liberal god, but I feel for the women who never stood a chance with you, man. 😉
