Matt Lodder is looking at me through heavy-rimmed spectacles, a tiny anchor winking from below his left eye. His knuckles are tattooed, not with “LOVE” and “HATE”, but with the legend “KNOW MORE”.

The Middle Man

Omaha Tattoo Shops - Skin Deep Omaha at 711 North 120th St. in Omaha

A woman walks into a tattoo parlor and tells the artist she would like two tattoos, one of Robert Redford on her left upper thigh, and one of Paul Newman on her right thigh. After hours of work, the tattoo artist is finished and holds a mirror in between the woman’s legs for her to view.
The woman says,” I don’t know if these really look like Paul & Robert, and I ain’t payin’ for this if it isn’t right!” She tells the artist she will go just outside the business and ask someone walking down the street if they know who the two men are on her thighs, if they answer correctly she would pay the artist.
She soon sees a man walking down the street, so she pulls up her skirt and asks him, ” Can you tell me who the man on my right thigh and the man on my left thigh are?”
The man replies, ” I dunno, but the one in the middle looks like Willie Nelson.” ~ author unknown
