Desmond Bryant's mug shot leads to #Dezzing Internet meme

Late last month, Raiders defensive tackle Desmond Bryant was arrested and charged with criminal mischief. While inebriated, he apparently made his way to a neighbor's house and caused a commotion. In the grand scheme of things, hardly noteworthy.

And then we saw Bryant's mugshot.

So, that happened. Which directly led to this: #Dezzing. That's right. It's Tebowing's shady older brother. And, thanks to Jimmy Kimmel, everybody is doing it. (Yes, we know this is a few days old, which in Internet time is like decades, but we just stumbled across it. Still, it left us jaw agape. Obviously.)

#Dezzing isn't restricted to Kimmel fans, either; famous chefs, Hollywood celebrities and sports-media folk are even getting in on it.

If you're looking for more, Larry Brown Sports is the unofficial #Dezzing curator. And, of course, there's always Twitter, where secrets go to be exploited and embarrassments live on forever.

There is good news, however: CBSSports.com's Pete Prisco lists Bryant 15th in his Top 50 Free Agents list. So there's that.
