Rick Perry’s Mug Shot Inspires Hilarious Internet Meme

August 20, 2014

Texas Gov. Rick Perry turned himself in for booking at a courthouse in Austin on Tuesday, less than a week after his indictment on two felony counts of abuse of power.

And Perry’s mug shot, released by the Austin Police Department, quickly inspired a meme, with references to Tyler Perry, the governor’s (noticeably absenthipster glasses, and the Maine teen who showed up for his booking photo wearing a T-shirt bearing his mug shot from a previous arrest.
