Reminds me of the guy who waited for hours to get his license. When he saw the picture he complained. "I waited around all morning for this, and now I look all grumpy in the picture." Said the DMV staff "I wouldn't worry about that, sir. When you get pulled over, that's what you're going to look like."
When Culpepper removed his makeup, wasn't that "misrepresent[ing] his or her identity"?
My like was for "This is supposed to be the one branch of government properly trained in not giving a fuck." Here in Ontario, their objection would have been to the smile. I was told to adopt a neutral expression. I think I did pretty good, but if I ever take up method acting, I'm not sure I'd be able to draw on that experience to act "neutral".
