Stick 'em up!



I know I have very generic facial features. How do I know this? I have come to this conclusion because billions of people have come up to me and told me I either look really familiar or that I look like one of their friends back home or that I look like a ridiculously gorgeous celbrity. These have ranged from the chubby kid (click here) on Forever Young (Not Elijah Wood but his friend) to Nathan Steed (here) on the Work and the Glory (a great american movie classic). At church on Sunday someone pulled me aside to tell me that I look like one of the dudes (and here) from Flight of the Concords (I am baffled by this and am still unsure to which dude he was referring). Today was probably the greatest of all though. While helping a young man check out some Japaname (I believe this is how it is spelled) at the HLRC he commented that I strongly resemble a train robber. I am not sure if he had a specific train robber in mind, or if meant that if he were to ever see a train robber he would imagine that they would look like me. Secretly I was more flattered with this than any other celebrity anyone could have said.

I wonder how many photobooth pics you took to get this gem. Knowing you, probably 1. Knowing me, it would have been 15.

it's the moustache. You kind of remind me of that guy on Smallville, only with lighter hair.

Wasn't it just the other night I told you that you have that Clint Eastwood, the "Good, the Bad and the Ugly" look. I don't know where they come up with chubby kid.

I will have to say that I don't think you look like any of those people, but from that picture of you with the stache, you look like Nepoleon's friend from Nepoleon Dynamite.
