A man has posed for a mugshot wearing a t-shirt showing himself posing for a mugshot.

Robert Burt, channelling MC Escher and the time he stood between two mirrors and freaked himself out with a vision of Burts receding into infinity, was arrested for drunk driving. He had a provisional mugshot taken and was ordered to report back to spend two days in custody.

    Mug #1

Burt posted on facebook, “Going to do my 48 hours whoo,” before surrendering to carry out his sentence. When he arrived at jail he was wearing a T-shirt printed with his first mugshot and the words “Burt Family Reunion 8/8-8/10/2014” (referring to an incarcerated relative), and “sponsored by Bud Light and Somerset County Sheriff".

    Mug #2, incorporating Mug #1

Burt said the corrections officer made him move the booking sign in order to capture his sartorial celebration of what, for many, would be a shameful episode. Burt said on Facebook, “They laughed there asses off haha”.

Burt's efforts recall the game played by Ryan Gosling and Macaulay Culkin in which one wears a t-shirt with a photo on it of the other wearing a t-shirt with a photo on it of the other, etc. Except Burt appears to be playing a high-stakes version, with himself. After his 48 hours in prison he announced on Facebook, “I’m out bitchs". Expect a third mugshot shortly.

This man is all about the satire. Even his moustache pays sardonical homage to his eyebrows, which is something Rory effing Bremner never managed.
