Rick Perry, the former Governor of Texas and two-time Republican presidential candidate, is currently a contestant on Dancing with the Stars. Whether or not this serves as career advancement remains to be seen, but considering the internet’s response to a “practice” photo Perry posted to his Instagram account, things might be looking up for the governor. Or, judging by the number of dick jokes the since-deleted post has generated, at least one thing in particular was up during Perry and dancing partner Kym Johnson’s most recent rehearsal.

Yeah, it’s bad. Bad enough that whoever Perry employs to run his social media promptly deleted the post as soon as Instagram and Twitter commenters began ridiculing the photo’s… placement.
