David Bowie was arrested in upstate New York in March 1976 on a felony pot possession charge. The Thin White Duke, 29 at the time, was nabbed along with Iggy Pop and two other codefendants at a Rochester hotel following a concert. Bowie was held in the Monroe County jail for a few hours before being released. The above Rochester Police Department mug shot was taken three days after Bowie’s arrest, when the performer appeared at City Court for arraignment.

I mostly just wanted you to know that these exist. And see if anyone in Fug Nation accepts this dare. They’re part of a thousand-set limited edition, y’all, so don’t sleep on your chance to marry Bowie and SWINTON on your PELVIS. WHERE THEY BELONG. [Also, this is the second year this has happened to me: I found these randomly about two days before Internet stories about them started popping up, and last year, I ordered the Jon Hamm coloring book for Jessica two days before stories about IT popped up everywhere. WILL I EVER WIN? I am the Ziggy of surprise gifting.]

$30 on Etsy; expressions on people’s faces: priceless
