Play an accordion, go to prison

That's the law, at least according to The Starving Musician's infamous bumper stickers. That could mean trouble for "America's favorite rock 'n' roll accordion band."

Well, it's never too late to make those New Year's resolutions, especially if a lifestyle change keeps you out of the clink or, more importantly, from showing up in a police booking photo wearing a polka dot shirt and a jester hat.

For a look at the true faces of ignominy, check out The Smoking Gun's 2005 Mug Shots of the Year. The Web's finest purveyor of
crime and news documents unleashes a true cavalcade of jailhouse hilarity. The pictures alone are fabulous, and the back stories make for great reading if you've got some time to kill. (Murderer!)

None of the people in these noteworthy pix got busted for squeezing, but this hilarious roundup of losers, bruisers, boozers, strippers, TV divas and even an alleged old-school moonshiner sure makes me more than a little nervous about what I'm going to wear to the next TDA gig. Sure hope the squeezebox cops aren't on patrol!
