Texas Gov. Rick Perry was indicted on charges of abuse of power last Friday, and yesterday, he stopped by the Travis County criminal justice center to be booked. This involved posing for a booking photo. Naturally, the Internet took it from there.
Here’s the original booking photo:

The Daily Beast’s Olivia Nuzzi observed that Perry was without his trademark hipster glasses, and she asked her Twitter followers to remedy the situation.
After being processed, Perry promptly went out for post-mug-shot ice cream. As you do.
