The other day, the Interwebs went absolutely crazy over the story of an Ohio man, Ryan Fitzjerald, who inked his girlfriend, Rossie Brovent, with the above poop tattoo after she had asked for a Narnia landscape. His reason for taking the fecal route was that she had cheated on him with his best friend and this was his revenge. Of course we all thought it was awesome, while she must have been mortified, and she was because the story was that she was suing him for $100,000.
The problem was that with a story this awesome, people will want to know more and actually talk to this poop-backed young lady to find out how it really all went down. The story isn’t beyond believable, as the couple is from Ohio, lives in a trailer park and there was tequila involved. Unfortunately, the Internet is full of people who have way too much time on their hands and it was determined that this was all a hoax.
… it first surfaced online about 18 months ago as part of a “Worst Tattoo of the Day” post on the blog I Am Bored.
The image reappeared this week–complete with a backstory about the fractured love of “Rossie” and “Ryan”–on a sketchy “weird news” web site that appears to be dedicated to ginning up its Googe AdSense impressions.
A review of court indices, of course, shows no such civil complaint has ever been filed (either in federal or state court) by “Brovent.” James Druber, administrator of the Montgomery County Common Pleas Court (where Dayton residents file their six-figure complaints), said that he had heard nothing about the purported tattoo lawsuit.
Also, Ryan and Rossie don’t exist, so that pretty much puts the kybosh on the whole thing.
Thankfully, there are so many actual tattoos out there that people have indeed had permanently sealed on their bodies, so I thought we could take a look at some of the most ridiculous and embarrassing – so many involving poop – tattoos that the Internet has ever given us.
