that guy is a legend.
thank you thank you thank you!!! i have been waiting for years for this picture to be on this blog!i miss seeing him everyday!
that's nothing! just you wait for the good ole 4th of July flag speedo!!
Way to go to which ever of "The Brain Child's" followers snapped that pic.Awesome!:-)
Wow, we should all feel that free with body image. No more slimfast meals, nutrisystem junk, bland salads and running five miles a day - just mow, strip down and enjoy life.Bet he will live longer than most.Go speedo!
I'm too sexy for my shirt.Too Sexy for my Pants, --by Right Said Fred
Wait until you catch he and his wife outside on their swing. She has on a bathing suit as well, thank goodness!!
Wow, he even has a tramp stamp.
Looks a lot like the people who hang out at the gym and pay for sweating because illegals mowed for them. He does it the old fashion way and sweats in his daily activities.
I'm pissed and green with envy! I wish someone would throw me a good bone like this for my blog!The war is on buddy!
My favorite is his tangerine speedo.
I wonder if I'd get any attention if I whacked my Banjo in the front yard.
Love the new heading. It really captures the essence of Wise County.
What kind of tattoo is on his back?
Isn't mowing with bare feet dangerous?
Dang it, we never get to see good stuff like this up here in Idaho! Of course, it's a little difficult to see detail, but it would appear the guy has NO body hair! When I was at the beach in Greece, ALL the men wore speedos and a big giant hair rug. Ewww!
I'd get skin cancer if I did that.
this pic made my day!!during the summer we have a game we play, we try to guess what color speedo he'll be wearing... good times
Husband and I were driving the other day, saw a man talking in his yard wearing what we thought to be his underwear. So, of course, shared the story with Mom. She asked if we were sure it wasn't a Speedo. I laughed and said no, but I'm thinking I was wrong. This was the guy. God Bless America.
Hooray! Speedo Man has been a Decatur gem for almost 20 years...we use to make laps in front of his house just to check out the Speedo color of the week. This guy is my hero. Own it Speedo Man. Own it.
I just lost my boner!
To Barry...You are responsible for me nearly losing a perfectly good lunch. Surely, in good old red-neck Decatur there are laws AGAINST mowing a lawn while only wearing a speedo without wearing safety gear/shoes/pants/shirt.For the love of humanity, you are a lawyer, dig through the city statutes and save our eyes from Speedo Mower Man.Why is that ripped handsome guys never mow their lawns wearing only a speedo?
I bet it would hurt like hell if a rock flew up from underneath the lawn mower and struck him on the end of his pecker.
i have missed him! we used to purposefully drive by his house on the way home in intermediate school...good times.
1:39 That would hurt like @#$% if you were wearing jeans...i'm just sayin'.
*YiKeS*We can say "pecker" on Barry's blog? Mind you, I have never, in the real world, said "pecker" when referencing male genitalia.
1:39 That made me laugh my arse off.
Local Wise County resident did not hit pecker with flying rocks during annaul grass cutting ceremony....6 months of extreme heat predicted.
Discounting the fact that it may be "painful" for most of us to look at speedo man (just cracks me up)...but, honestly, just one time I would like to be secure enough in myself to do something like that and not give a flying flip what anyone thinks...I definitely give him "props" for that :)
How come it's OK to say pecker but not nigger? There are more potential offendees with penises than there are with nappy hair.
I think you should change the banner heading under LLFTLODQ to "A look at all the weirdos in Wise County".
Very inappropriate Jesse Jackson in drag.I do however, miss seeing speedo man out on his front porch and out mowing.Priceless.
THE PERFECT MAN!!- He has a mullet - He is sporting a speedo- He has a tramp stamp- He has self confidence - He gets off his ass and does something around the house!BG: I think I'm in love.
We will all be equal December 21 2012
Funny blog and comments. But Barry, it's 100%, NOT .100%. The latter would be one-tenth of one percent (which would be .001 in decimal values). Yah gotta remember--DON'T PUT DECIMALS IN FRONT OF NUMBERS IF YOU USE THE % SIGN!! (Unless you mean a REALLY small number.) Of course it's a miracle I could still see the "error" after my eyes were put out by the picture image on the blog! Loved the pic, the blog, and all the comments.
An Emmy or an Oscar? Puleeeezzzz. Eyes rolling...
Do you remember the beer comercials on the radio about Mr. way to proud of Texas man.There were so others too. I think Mr. I mow my yard in a speedo needs a song. but not a thong.
He has his blue Decatur Screaming Eagle banana hammock on!!
So this blog is still here.
hey 3:43you're a moron. it's a period (.) after "Thanks emailer" I'm just sayin...
Um,3:43, that's not a decimal in front of 100%. That's a period at the end of the sentence.
3:43... I think he meant Thanks emailer(period)100% Gold(period)
I just noticed the other half of the banner. Somehow having a fat guy in a speedo and a sign referencing catfish all in the same banner just seems wrong. 'Course, I think I'm just jealous. You can't get catfish up here in Idaho, and I should just be so lucky to have a neighbor out mowing his lawn half nekkid.
I can just imagine him, in his Speedos, without any protective equiment mind you. It's right before he starts mowing the lawn.....he's holding his water hose up over his head, wetting himself down, from top to bottom. I'm gonna fight ya for him in the Decatur Wal-Mart parking lot, 3:34PM. Meet me up near the gas pumps at 12 midnight if you dare.Mmmmmmmm......there is nothing better than wet mullets.
.....catfish?What about the restroom, 5:35PM?
To anonymous 6:24...I have been to Idaho. There are restrooms in Idaho but they are not as proud of there restrooms as the folks in Wise County are of their restrooms. At least, I have never seen restrooms advertised in Idaho.*;)
congrats BG...you got Mzchief to come out of hiding..well done.
To anonymous 9:52...I was not hiding. I was working. I had to prepare a couple of papers and a few seminars to present at a professional conference the second week in May. It SUCKS when people expect me to work during business hours and PROVE my worth and produce a measurable work product. I must admit, I am truly surprised at having been "missed." A lesson to those who mentioned my alias. Do not EVER mention the name of someone who is not present especially if you do NOT want to endure their return. *;)It is good to be back playing in the kitty poop strewn sandbox that is Barry's blog.
misschief...speedo man wouldn't do you!
that restroom sign is from dairy queen.
Not sure if that is the real mz.....cannot imagine her saying there restrooms as opposed to "their" restrooms........just saying....
How in the world does he keep his lawn free of grassburrs???
To anonymous 10:33...You are absolutely correct. Speedo Mower Man would not do me because I would not do him. I am happily married with standards well above yours. You do realize it is disgusting for you to speculate on the sexual behavior of other adults not associated with your personal sexual behavior, right. Oh, of course you are not aware of this bit of standard behavior because CIVILIZED/DECENT people know this type of information.
To anonymous 12:02...It is truly ME. I was talking on the phone and playing wii Bowling while composing the "restroom" comment. One of these days I will proofread my comments PRIOR to clicking the publish link. Thank you for the grammar check.*:)
Thanks 1:39 I just spit Coffee everywhere.....Thats some funny shit........
Speedomans family has lived on that corner for 60+ years. His father,brothers and others built that house when he was little.
I’ll bet money this guy was a porn star back in the 70s!
He is definitely comfortable in his own skin. You've got to give him that. I wonder if he reads this blog. If so, I bet he will be looking over his shoulder more the next time he mows the lawn!
9:15... He doesn't care, because a couple of girls I work with found out about him and stopped by and got him to take a picture with them. He also gives out candy at Halloween with that thing on.
When I was a kid you could walk by their house and find Speedoman passed out in the front seat of his old blue Impala. I distinctly remember 2 times. One stands out because he was so beat up and bloody you would have assumed he was dead until you heard him moaning.He had large knots all over his face. Both of his eyes were black and later he was seen sort of feeling his way around. His eyes were nearly swollen shut. Another time he was snoring away with his feet sticking out the passenger window. We went up to the car and saw a pack of Camels, a bottle of Thunderbird Wine and a small chrome revolver on the front floorboard hump. I don't remember how on earth we got that wine and smokes out of that car but we did. We were scared out of our minds. Thinking about it makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up today. We ran off to some empty lot with our swag. I remember smoking the cigarettes.I would not touch a cigarette on a bet today but, although strong, they were sweet tasting. They tasted very good in fact. We found out he kept his smokes in the glove box of his car. I think we borrowed a few packs here and there from him. I don't remember drinking the wine at all but,I'm sure we did. I'm glad he's is starting to get the status he so richly deserves. Speedoman You Rock Dude!!!!!!! The End
I also remember he had an old blue truck once. It had 2 antennas on it that were comically long.Thinking back they actually seem incredibly long and must have been illegal. They each had tennis balls on them to keep from marring the paint. It marvelled me as he drove by me on my bike. Above the back window it said in mailbox letters "Sit And Bull"
speedoman vs. ralph hardy. Who wins?
Is that what they mean by "manscaping"? I had no idea that Greg Louganis moved to Wise County.
I'll never forget my first encounter with Speedo-Man - Halloween 1998, a particularly warm evening and the sight of a multi-colored clown wig and the Speedo as he answered his front door made me ban my children from that house eternally.Yes, he's a legend
It wouldn't take a clown wig nor any kind of clothing or the lack thereof to insure my children stayed away. Did you NOT SEE THAT HOUSE? I'll try to be gentle here considering the circumstances. Are you an idiot or just making that one up? If you took children to that door you are a doofus. If you went there expecting those folks to hand your little snowflakes something they are going to place in their mouths you are retarded. His antics are for adult entertainment only.
mzchief is hot I bet.
Maybe he IS Ralph Hardy?
To 2:41, we had moved to Decatur in 1998, lived way out in the country and the kids wanted to trick-or-treat. So, we grabbed our hand-out candy and headed into town. I've never been one to judge folks by their surroundings, or what they drive, or wear, or do for a living, so no, the house didn't phase me, Speedoman, however, was a bit much to take, so we just steered clear of that corner after that.
I'm sorry-I'm an ass.
you won't believe it but my husband and i were crusing one afternoon shortly after we met, and this has been some 19 years ago, not being from this wonderful wise little county!! he was showing me all the sites!! up one little road, over another when I spotted the guy wearing the brightest LIME GREEN (THEN) i thought it was undies~~ but SPEEDO, and i was pointing and turning in the seat trying to get my honey to go back cause he acted like he didn't believe me..... HE was KIN to him and wouldn't turn back for fear of what?? that he would have to look at his ?? cousin!!! lol, LMAO.....
odd but don't they in wise ~ eeerrrcities call fellows who look and act and display their speeedo's ... perverts? or unfavorable for small audiances? com' on people ~~ but you don't get many clues on this one that he just ain't " RIGHT " .... wise up!!
I went to school with his kids. Very good people.
Seems Mr. Speedo man sent a postcard to WWW.POSTSECRETS.COMFunny stuff.
"Decatur Speedoman" begs the question,"Where are the others?!?!"Can I have the Weatherford territory?
Years ago my girlfriend lived down the street from Speedoman. You see that big tree above him in the picture? After he started talking to us one evening while we were out for a walk I innocently commented on how pretty his Pecan Tree was and I wish I had one like that in my yard. He said," I can give you one of its children at least." And went to his backyard for a minute or two. When he came back he was holding an about 2 feet tall Pecan Tree with it s roots wrapped in a ball of dirt.I took it home and planted it. It didn't grow but at least I walked across Decatur looking silly holding that tree and there is some solace in that I suppose. The End
bahahahaha!!!! I lived in Decatur for 13 years. Speedoman was a staple in our little town. Everyone knew about him! He was often the butt of our jokes back in the day.
HAHAHA!!! Oh my gosh speedo man! I remember him! He is seriously a legend. My friends and I were talking about him today. He has a wide collection of speedos.
Is this guy still around? I haven't been to Decatur in years and I was wondering about him the other day.
