This is going round the interwebnetpipes this morning, with the source (I think, after a 15 second hunt) apparently this tweet from Justin Wolfers here. So let’s stick it on IKN for posterity’s sake:
To be honest, if I were Ben B I’d be reasonably proud of that photo, hindsight and all.
- Pleasant smile and demeanour (that’s not so easy via a photo)
- Fashionably long hair (check the birth date)
- Styled and cared-for tache.
- Un-stupid shirt.
So take the flak Benny, then stand proud about the mugshot. You were OK back then.
