So I figured I’d try and lampoon Joe Pa in my next post. The logical 1st step is to find a few good pictures of your subject because, as any good writing teacher will tell you, “Step 1, find funny pictures. Step 2, Create a title. Step 3, determine your subject.”
Anyway, being the dutiful writer that I am, I did a google image search for “Paterno.” The usual angry, undead, fire breathing pictures popped up, but after a quick scan I discovered images from an Italian museum all titled “Paterno.” I can only deduce that these are photos of various busts, statues, and paintings that were rendered during Joe Pa’s earlier years. Probably even before he made the deal with the devil that now gives him eternal “life” as an undead.
These images are all available here.
Joe Pa is seen here studying for his Abacus exam.
A bust of Joe Pa, probably done when he was about 30.
