In the first layer throwdown, ShamWow rechristens himself #Ascamihorn and The Inmate is now the infinitely more devious #Sinman. A feast of facial hair and hashtaggery.
Shammykins has done a lovely job capturing the essences of today's competitors, including the light green regulation hair dye we require each Layer Tennis player to sport throughout the match (it rinses out after a few weeks, and causes very little gastrointestinal distress).
But look closer, beyond the likenesses, and check out how he chose to position each face. His own gaze confronts the audience, looking you in the eye, staring you down, while Inman-the-Sinman looks skyward, the dreamer, too distracted by the angle of his own peaked hair to return the serve. Yep, I'd say Shamtastic is trying to assert his own bad-assedness through this simple illustration.
The only thing Inman will be able to do to win the next volley is shave his own head.
