You can call Blake Griffin whatever you want. I’m calling him “Milkshake.”
A reader, georgiee, pitched it and immediately, I was inundated with messages of joy and happiness. Admittedly, the name doesn’t make a lot of sense on the surface, but please let me to talk you through it.
- Half-Chocolate, Half-Vanilla
- Both are smooth, but deadly serious
- Both get you in that blender
- Both are ICE-COLD bastards
- Both are super f*ckin’ great
And if you don’t buy those reasons, who cares? Why can’t we just choose a nickname that’s crazy fun and makes us happy? You think I won’t have a blast yelling “MILKSHAKE” at the top of my lungs inside Madison Square Garden when the Clips come through? I will. And I’ll have a hot dog in each hand, and it’ll be great. The way I see, if you don’t call him “Milkshake,” you’re the one missing out.
This incredible illustration was deftly made by the mighty, mighty KevJuice. If you don’t already know him and his work, it’s time. He’s got that Pure Premium. Prior to working with GotEmCoach.com, Kev worked on projects with ESPN, including this monster for Bill Simmons’ podcast. He also has this mashup of Inception and LeBron’s “Decision.”
I’m honored he agreed to work with Got ‘Em, his work should be appreciated, and I know you’ll be seeing more of it, hopefully right here on the site.
i drew this as a PSA for those assholes of my gender who are under the impression that they can charm women by making animal noises or yelling obscenities at them. though i don’t claim to be a master in the art of seduction, nor do i pretend to know what goes on in the mind of the female population, i can tell you with confidence, that they don’t like this. i grew up in a house full of women, and i have interacted with a few over the past two decades, and not once have i heard any of them speak favorably of said acts, therefore i would advise all guys that have or have thought of doing this, to refrain from harassing them and shaming yourselves.
i wish it were possible to apologize for other people.
Oh my god, this is amazing.
