Mike Belleme's Uncle Dirty was a bodybuilder on New York City's muscle beaches in the middle of last century. He and his wife Alga now live in Jacksonville, Florida. Uncle Dirty still rubs himself down with baby oil and parades around in thongs that he makes himself. Sometimes, the police hassle him about it, especially when he goes to the beach. One of Uncle Dirty's hobbies, besides sewing thongs, is pasting photos of giant penises on male bodies he finds in magazines. Belleme recently decided to do a photo essay of his great Uncle Dirty, a real character. Link (NSFW) (Thanks, Uncle Barty Nagel!)
