More Scoops

Sorry for the delay in posting these but thanks to everybody who told me over the weekend how much they like the blog and the places they have seen scoops.

This man is so relaxed. I'm sure he was enjoying a tasty burger or maybe even a steak and shrimp dinner. He just looks so comfortable in that booth with one leg over the other. It's almost like the brown shoes are jealous that they aren't scoops themselves. (kelly sent this one in)

Kiddie Scoops - This kid is ready. He will most likely graduate on to the scoops with velcro in a few years but these are good for now. No word if his mom still has to tie these scoops or not. You can see the girl in the background eyeing his scoops. She's jealous. (Claire sent this picture in)

These are Church Retreat Scoops. Notice the Bible in the picture. Little known fact that most of the The Twelve Apostles wore scoops. Judas was the first known person to wear "ups" with his "scoops" and you see how he turned out. (Picture by Taylor)

Mass Production Scoops - You get these when you sign up for freshman classes at GA Tech. (Picture by Kelly)

Coaching Scoops - Most coaches wear scoops. That doesn't make you a good coach by any stretch of the imagination. If it did Tommy Bowden would have won a title by now.

The Total Package - I spotted this man about 20 feet away at the book store. I saw the scoops first then noticed the chain that connects his wallet to his pants. Chain wallets really go well with a pair of scoops nicely and will eventually get its on thread on Don't Be Rough Blog. Its as if this man knew I have a website that highlights scoops and he wanted to show his off. He walked right over posed for a few seconds while pretending to look at magazines. I only hate I couldn't get his full body in the photo as he had a mullet to go with the chain and scoops. the picture is not clear becasue I was shaking with excitement. I am sorry.

Don't forget to keep spreading the word about Scoops!

I have my first guest blogger today.

One of my best friends always talks about "Muggin" like I should know what it means. I had no clue until she laid it out for me like this. I'm slow as most of you know so the pictures help a lot and it makes sense to me now. She uses the term "muggin" about as much as I say "don't be rough" so maybe it will catch on after the tens of millions of people read it on my blog.

Also before I forget more Scoops are coming Friday. I've gotten a lot of emails and texts from people who have found certain scoops out in the wild. Keep sending them in!

Katie also has her own Blog and loves cupcakes. Check it out and don't be rough!

Now here's Katie...

So, I am charged this week with writing a guest blog for Josh. Apparently he is too lazy to actually blog for himself. He did however, assign me a topic. Whew! Makes my homework so much easier!

Josh wants me to explain the term ‘muggin’. He doesn’t quite have a grasp on what it means so he assumes that none of his ten readers understand it either. Yall are probably much more with it than him but I’ll attempt to explain it.

Muggin is a term that can be used in a few different ways. For instance, if you are unhappy with a situation and you express your feelings then you are muggin. If you’re not quite sure what I mean, just look at the following series of pictures.

David Beckam is "amazed!"

My God this man is "so amazed!" Clearly the two
men beside him are homosexuals.

Uh Oh somebody is "getting rough." Busted!

I don't even think a new pair of Scoops could cheer her up.

What do David Beckham and I have in common?
Neither one of us is sleeping with Posh tonight.

Clearly, Posh is muggin on Becks. You could also say that she is “coppin’ a mug” or “mean muggin”

And there you have it, now you know how to use the term muggin!

(editor's note: I would have used football players and porn stars in my examples but this works too. Thanks Katie.)

The Hollywood Scoop

We have our first reader submission!
(Thanks Erin)

While not scoops caught in the wild with a cell phone these scoops come all the way from the west coast. These are the true "Hollywood Scoops." Notice how they tuck the jeans in to the scoops out there. Interesting...

Chris Brown must have read my blog before he got dressed last night.

Hopefully they stay out in Hollywood with the dumb ass that hosted the Video Music Awards last night, Russell Brand. I don't know who he is but if he ever shows up on my TV again I will blog about him. In the mean time I hope he gets run over by a bus somewhere between Rodeo Drive and Sunset Boulevard. I wrote something rougher about him but I will save it for later...

These people find me...

You know I made this blog so I could make fun of people. I figured it would be funny and I have a lot more ideas in addition to the "scoops" post. But sometimes things just seem to write themselves...

I show up at the Clemson game this past weekend and this guy is at the tailgate next to us. He even posed for pictures.

Feel free to comment...

Scoops in motion

This man loves his Scoops and Ups.

Scoops and Ups

You've seen them before but you had no idea what they are called. Of course I am talking about "Scoops." Not the scoops to the right that are so crunchy and delicious with cheese dip or salsa...

Nope I'm talking about SCOOPS!!!

Scoops are simply white shoes. Usually ultra white tennis shoes with minimal color if any at all. Scoops are not limited to only tennis shoes but the best ones can be found with dark colored jeans. If you are lucky enough you will spot them with jean shorts.

The following Scoops were all taken out in the wild with my camera phone. You can laugh all you want but it's dangerous getting pictures like this. Before I knew how to turn my sound off the camera would make a clicking noise when the picture was taken. The best way to cover this up was to cough just as I clicked the photo. Another problem is when the scoop wearer is walking while I am trying to take the picture. These are very hard pictures to get with a camera phone.

I ask if you see any scoops in the future to get a picture of them and send them to me at joshuazobel@gmail.com

Here are a few examples of Scoops...

These are scoops with jeans. Pretty common
for serial killers in their 30's and 40's.
They can also be found at Dragon Con, Bus Stops and GA Tech.

These Scoops are so white that it blurs my camera. If Angels wore shoes they would wear these. These jeans also are a little more baggy than the previous picture. This guy was trying to dress up and this is the best he could do.

Notice how well a pair of Scoops go with some jeans that are too short when you sit down. I think it's because the tongue on these are so nice the guy wants you to see them and enjoy them like he does.

All the man to the left cares
about in life is making sure
he doesn't get these
bad boys dirty.

Apparently these shoes are real hot sellers around the Smyrna area. This guy went with this look before heading to Taco Bell for a Mexi-Melt. He was in such a hurry that he didn't have time to use the velcro offered on this model. If they were mine I would strap them down so nobody would steal them off my feet. Honda Accords, gold watches and Scoops are the most commonly stolen items according to google.com

Ladies and gentlemen.....I give you Ups!

Ups are nothing more than socks that are pulled up high. This isn't a great example but when combined with the power of Scoops and shorts they are almost unstoppable. See the line on the floor there? That man has just crossed it and he doesn't give a damn.

Scoops, Ups and Shorts...
This man has to be hung like a donkey to leave the house this way.

I leave you with the Ultimate Scoop. If I ever get to Heaven I am going straight to God's closet and looking for the matching mate to this Scoop.
