Actually, Jacob "Dude, you have no Quran" Isom has several dreams. They are modest, and adorable.

His first wish? He'd like to be featured in High Times. Awesome!

Also, he'd like to buy a truck, so he can drive around Amarillo selling pizza by the slice. He's considering auctioning off his skateboard on E-Bay to make that happen. Let the bidding wars begin!

His friends started a Tumblr page to sell this t-shirt. I assume he'll get some of the profits.

Gawker has a charming interview with him, excerpts below.

David's 23. He works at a pizzeria in Amarillo. He says, "If people want to make fun of me for that, they should know I enjoy cooking pizza more than they enjoy their office jobs." Here is his YouTube cooking show. Cheese-steak sandwiches. Yar!


Jacob also enjoys skateboarding, fly fishing, and antagonizing Repent Amarillo, David Grisham's xenophobic church group. "They rant and rave with a bullhorn, and pass judgment," Jacob says. "That's not what Jesus would do. Whatever happened to that saying, anyway? What Would Jesus Do? Maybe we should bring that back."

And he's good at it! In the off-chance you missed the story, here is our Jacob in his moment of triumph:

Gawker again:

But as exciting as that was, he has an even bigger dream: "I want to be in High Times. Can you put that in your article? I tried to call them, but you have to use the internet, and I don't know if they'll call back. That's why I was so excited when you called. I thought it might be them, calling back."

Jacob may be famous on the internet, but he says he barely uses the web. "I don't have an iPhone. I don't even have a computer. I don't know who's running this fan page on Facebook about me. I don't even have a Facebook." He created his first email account yesterday, at the behest of friends who are starting a t-shirt company. They don't have an online store, yet, but they launched a Tumblr account yesterday featuring shirts screenprinted with Jacob Isom's face.

It's not the only way Jacob plans to capitalize on his fame: "I'm hoping maybe I can get two rich people to battle for my skateboard on eBay, and I could make enough money to buy a truck and sell pizza by the slice from a truck."

Aw geez!  Can we order enough t-shirts to get him a pizza truck? Or do we have to wait for the Great E-Bay Skateboard Auction?

Rock on, Jacob Isom! Dude!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
