you know who you look like?

I have a bearded friend named Jacob who once said that any guy who has a beard has to deal with people constantly telling him that he looks like someone else...who has a beard.

Since growing my beard out again, I have experienced this first hand. But, I think some of my look-a-likes comments have been pretty keen observations. Others...not so much.

So I've decided to have a little contest. Here are the top 5 "You Know Who You Look Like" comments I've received. And I want you to vote on who you think is closest.

Just to remind you...this is what I actually look like:



And the Nominees are (in no particular order):

Jesus Christ


Jake Gyllenhaal


that guy from the band Leeland


some dude Betsy saw at a Children's Book Fair this summer


and...a young Ted Kazenski


Okay. Those are the nominees. So who do you think is closest?

I like how you said, "in no particular order" right before listing Christ. You are a magician of details.

And as for the vote...I think you look like Bill Wolf and all those other guys look like You!

thanks jake.

and i did note the irony of pointing out 'no specific order' and then placing Jesus first, as i typed it. it made me chuckle then too. oh well...Christ comes first even when there is no order. how's that?

and jeff...sly with a beard, huh? like the Russian work-out montage in Rocky IV? i'll take that. thanks man.

no one will think the guy from World's Fair park because they haven't seen the WHOLE picture. he's you...clothes, stance, everything. but i agree with jake. they all look like you. and i've seriously gone, "hey tim, that guy looks like bill."

bill said...

um...the dude was wearing shorts and a t-shirt. and he was bent over looking at something on a table.

since chuck norris wasn't mentioned as a nominee, i'm going to have to go with "some strange dude betsy saw."

secondly, tell betsy to quit looking a strange dudes even IF they look like you.

Indeed. Like the Russian work-out montage in Rocky IV.


Oh, and please go here for hours of fun.

Funny, I was going to go with Stallone in "Nighthawks"...

...but Rocky IV works too I guess.

Greg is right. Have you published your manifesto yet?

That guy at world's fair park does look like you. I mean, he has shorts on...you wear shorts. He is bending over to look at something...you bend over to look at stuff. He visits world's fair...you visit world's fair.

You all are practically twins.

Well, except in the face. You guys don't look anything alike in the face. But everything else is dead on...
