HuffPo got its paws on the 1996 Beachwood high school year book, which is notable because those pages contain the picture you see above of Josh Mandel in drag (he's on the right) spotting another dragged-up dude doing some exercises.
Nice form there, Josh.
Mandel is laughing it all off.
When asked for the context of the photo, Mandel communications director Travis Considine replied, "Josh didn't remember it, but it looks like he was joking around for a gag photo in his high school yearbook. Humor has always been an important part of his personality, especially when he used it to keep up morale among his Marines in Iraq. He also thinks it's important to have a spotter when you're doing lat pull downs."
