People do weird things in their sleep. They walk, snore, talk. Heck, I've been known to sleep with my eyes open on occasion. Yeah, it's as weird as it sounds. But I think we can all agree that sleeping is sacred and none of us would want anything we do in our sleep made public.

Too bad Georgia nose guard John Jenkins didn't get that courtesy.

Teammate Tavarres King snapped a shot of Jenkins, who had the unfortunate luck of falling asleep in the players lounge, and tweeted it.

Yes, that is a 6-foot-3, 351-pound man sucking his thumb like a 1-year-old.

And yes, it's totally fine to point and laugh.

Can we get a binky for John John?

Let's be honest, there are few things funnier than seeing such a big man look like such a big baby. I feel for you Mr. Jenkins, there is a photo of my sleeping with my eyes open floating around somewhere. Still, thank you Tavarres King for sharing this photo with the rest of the world.
