After a night of fun, writing, and too much candy, Timmy Capone’s reign over the All-You-Can-Eat Candy Buffet came to an end, and he was taken into custody and shipped off to the Big House.
The really Big House.
The park ranger that Timmy poses with was very appreciative of the fact that the monkey wasn’t wearing a striped uniform. He said it always annoyed him a bit when people cosplayed with, or wore the striped prison shirts when visiting Alcatraz. When I told him that I preferred the blue uniform over the stripes because it was more dignified, he gave me this relieved look and said, “Thank you. It is more dignified.”
He then went on to tell me that the Governor(?) of California outlawed the striped uniform decades ago, so the striped one would’ve been slightly inaccurate, historically speaking.
After that conversation I couldn’t, in good conscience, change Timmy into the other uniform during the tour. I showed the ranger that I did actually make Timmy the other costume, at the insistence of others, and his reply was, “That’s for your other prison tours.”
So no pics of Timmy in/on the Rock in the striped uniform, out of respect for, and deference to, the park ranger. I can’t recall his name, since he blocked his name tag with Timmy.
