*Note before reading: The following article and attached link ARE safe for work, so long as the word “penis” doesn’t raise any eyebrows around the office. There are no R-rated photos here.

According to Deadspin.com, an anonymous source has come forward with a naked cell phone photo of Mariners closer David Aardsma. Yes, really.

The source reportedly contacted local news website SeattleMet.com with the information, which was then forwarded over to Deadspin. To quote the source directly:

“To whom it may concern:

I have a photo of Seattle Mariners pitcher David Aardsma that may be of interest to your magazine publication. Sent to my phone directly from Mr. Aardsma (camera phone of Mr. Aardsma clearly displayed in the picture itself) showing subject in VERY compromising position (i.e. fully nude). Considering his marital status and prominent position in the Seattle community, this photo necessitates significant attention. Due to the recent media coverage of Tiger Woods’ similar situation, this topic is rather timely & appropriate in nature.

If you have any interest in acquiring this photo, feel free to contact me through this email address. Thank you for your time.

M.S.”

From a social perspective, this is interesting, to say the least.
