Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

Occasionally I visit a certain restaurant, and I swear Al Sharpton is always there. It's not really Al Sharpton, of course. I happen to think that this particular guy looks like Al Sharpton. You'll have to take my word for it because I won't invade "Al Sharpton's" privacy by photographing him.

Years ago, The Washington Post pointed out that then Secretary of State Warren Christopher

bore a very strong resemblance to

Kukla. Yes, that Kukla of

These days, I watch the news and every time I see Mitch McConnell

I wonder if his head will disappear into his shirt collar because he looks so much like a

I suspect we'll start to see more of the president's lawyer, Jay Sekulow, who has also played the part of

Mr. Burns' lawyer on The Simpsons (Favorite Young Man told me about this one; I can't stand The Simpsons).

And how about Jeff Sessions?

He's practically a ringer for

Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug, who always looks like a queen (her tiara gives her away along with the frequent mention of "we are not amused")


  1. The thing about look-alikes is that they never do in real life when standing side by side. Have you noticed? Must be a matter of presence. There's more to us than features.

  2. OH MY GOD, you said the same exact thing that I always say about Mitch McConnell - he looks like a turtle! Actually though, I always feel bad for the turtle when I say that. That's quite an insult to a turtle...

    I hate Mitch McConnell - he makes my skin crawl and I say Ewww every time I see his ugly mug on TV. He makes me sick!

    Thanks for the giggle this morning...

  3. Those are great, Janie. I saw that someone compared Jeff Sessions to Granny on the Beverly Hillbillies. Uncanny. But not as nice as Granny or Smurf.

  4. *snort* This was funny! Do you wear your tiara every day or only on special occasions. Inquiring minds want to know :)

  5. I'm waiting for McConnell to pull all those double chins up over his head.

  6. Actually, Jeff Sessions looks JUST LIKE "granny" from the Beverly Hillbillies. Google it and a meme that went around will pop right up. You'll see!

  7. If you want to see a freaky close resemblance, check out a picture of Irene Ryan as Grandma Clampett from The Beverly Hillbillies. She looks just like Jeff Sessions.

  8. We ARE amused today!!

  9. Hi Janie ... thankfully I don't know most of those guys ... so I can relax and not think about resemblances, though see what you're saying ... cheers Hilary

  10. I always thought Rahm Emanuel and actor Adam (not Alqan) Arkin were separated at birth.

    I agree with Mirka Breen that once you actually get two people together you discover that the resemblance isn't exact, no matter how close.

    And I know I'm not the only one who thinks that in his American Idol days, Clay Aiken looked like Martin Short's illegitimate son!

  11. I don't know how to post it, but Kellyanne Conway is twins with a lizard - I'm convinced of that.

  12. I agree with all of the comparisons (none of the people) except Jeff Sessions. He clearly looks like Mac from Mac and Me. Which, if you don't know obvious ET rip off Mac and Me, check out this image:

  13. I wonder who or what we'd be compared to if we were well-known ... good thing we're not!

    Oh, wait. I've already compared myself to a mushroom (in my hair posts). Ugh. I guess we don't need to be famous after all :)

  14. Try Mitch as Mr. Owl. Uncanny.

  15. When I was single, my friend and I would go to bars, and play "Celebrity look-alikes." It was fun and we laughed a lot. I still do that when the husband and I go out- I'll look over and see someone who looks like Cher, or Gene Kelly.

  16. Funny stuff, lady> I really like Joe Biden, but he bears an uncanny resemblance to Jeff Dunham's puppet Walter.

    Have a super weekend!

  17. Al Sharpton.... One of my flash points ! My blood pressure is going up fast.
    I love the Smurfs. The old TV smurfs they were the best.
    Do not even want to know who I would look like ? A very dry riverbed of cracked earth is all I can think of but that is not a person.

    cheers, parsnip and thehamish

  18. If only Sessions were as wise and gentle as Papa Smurf...

  19. Too funny! I got a kick out of this, Janie!
