When the Giants acquired Hunter Pence at the trade deadline, much fun was had with his appearance. While obviously a virile young professional athlete, there is something vaguely bug-like about Pence. Giants fans, as is their wont, flooded a chat with GM Brian Sabean with jokes about their new right fielder.

Cheap as these jokes may be, when Hunter Pence looks like…Hunter Pence looks, the jokes pretty much write themselves. Behold Pence’s tribute to the great field of entomology in full facial form. You can’t tell me Pence doesn’t extend his tongue as an auxiliary sensory device to aid his pursuit of the baseball. I won’t believe you for a second.
