This is not another "look alike thread" and props to grappler for the image.

I'm sure that everyone is aware that Franklin is a dead ringer for Jim Carrey but I have been debating for weeks whether his new haircut is a direct tribute to Lloyd from Dumber and Dumber or if something else went horribly wrong. What do you think, is Rich screwing with us, or did he slam half a dozen tall boys and walk into a barber shop? I'm convinced that this is on purpose, I mean he had to know, you don't end up with a hairstyle like that without some motives and he already embraces his "Ace" nickname obviously.

I think he just wanted to see if he could still grow his hair as he is getting old.

"Haaaarrry"

If it wasn't for the darkening of the hair, I'd be unsure. Remember the dragon tattoo? He's not above trolling us.

I don't think Franklin is trolling us. Sometimes you are busy with life and you just don't care how you look.

Besides, the picture looks like it was taken shortly after training or exercise.

First thing that popped into my head. That tattoo was epic.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

Oh its on purpose, but it's a clever play to hide that receding hairline that has probably hit 5th gear...

Franklin VS Male Pattern Baldness

Round 1 > 10-8 Franklin

That's why his nickname is ace.
He could be Jim Carey brother
