They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Some pictures, however, prevent even one word from being uttered.

Larry has on a cowboy hat (of sorts) and two hoop earrings (which we hope and pray are clip-ons). Maybe Larry doesn't really like the "music" Aldean makes, but is just engaging in good ol' PR—in the grand tradition of Charles Steinberg (AKA The Mad Dentist). Can this truly be the same man who brilliantly christened the Yankees as baseball's Evil Empire? Oh, the humanity!
