I have, against my better judgement, been posting a fair number of photos of myself recently, and these have drawn a number of comments. Two in particular told me that I had a resemblance to famous people.
Now my wife has, from time to time, compared me with Roger Daltry, the singer from The Who:
Wigsf3 went a stage further and said that I look like the love child of Roger and Eric Idle:
Not sure how that is supposed to happen but I guess anything is possible with modern science!
And how could I complain about being compared with such giants of rock and comedy? Maybe I should try singing more often to see which one I sound like? Maybe I should sing the words of "We won't get fooled again" to the tune of "Always look on the bright side of life"?
Terri also found me a lookalike - Judd Hirsch:
Not an actor who I could have named, to be honest, but certainly someone who seems to have been on TV as long as I can remember! And he really does look like me! I want a paternity test! That guy must be worth a fortune by now!
My wife sometimes says I look like Gene Wilder:
Another genius of comedy - is there a message here that I don't look like someone who should be taken seriously? I can live with that! Being takes seriously has all sorts of bad side effects anyway!
Finally, my wife has also been known to compare my hair with this guy's hair:
When she does that, I know it won't be long before I am sitting in the kitchen having a hair cut.
Wigsf 's comment reminded me of the best compliment I have ever had - being told that I looked like Aragorn:
Total rubbish, but I can take it :-)
OK, your turn now!
