The most famous Jonas Brother, according to popular opinion, is Nick, the youngest of the trio. I personally prefer Joe, but I get Nick’s appeal; just his arms, bye. So when the Jonases hit the Grammy stage tonight, graced in matching black and gold outfits, millions of fans trained their eyes on Nick, ready to take a vision of studiousness.
So imagine their – ours! Surprise – see …
… there seemed to be something in his teeth?
OK, everyone is seeing it? I think there is definitely something there.
Right here! Look at him!
Nick went on TV with something in his teeth, guys!
But what is it?
It looks like grass to me. Is it rosemary?
Computer, get better.
But on Twitter, at least one fan it was quick to call it spinach. Before long, the performance was over and Nick tweeted, “And at least you all know that I eat my vegetables”, showing good humor and also seeming to confirm the spinach theory. How did that fan know? Is their TV much better than mine? Is there anything in the Jonas Brothers tradition on spinach ???
Or wait: maybe the spinach spread its arms? Damn. Now it all makes sense.
