Portrait of a badass

“The picture does amuse me because based on that picture, many people imagine me as a 6-foot-4 ex-Marine badass, rather than the 5-foot-8 goofball I am in real life.”
– John Scalzi

I find that to be a hilarious quote, not so much because it is hard to believe that anyone has ever imagined McRapey to be an ex-Marine, (and of course, if he knew anything about the Corps he would know there is no such thing as an ex-Marine), but because it is hard to believe anyone would buy the notion that Mr. Scalzi is 5’8″.
