A comment on my previous post (from Wurst, who I gather breezed in from Stonch’s Beer Blog) brought up the turbulent topic of celebrity lookalike-ness.  He asserted that I looked like “a cross between Jaz Coleman and that singer who was in that show with an American guy from the Mighty Boosh!”.  Thankfully, Wikipedia was on hand to tell me who each of these people are, and a process of deduction helped me arrive at the identity of the latter being Matt Berry.

I guess he’s got a point.  With any luck, it’s partially complimentary.

In my youth it was often hinted at that I used to have a bit of an Antonio Banderas thing going on, especially in this gem of a picture from Lynn’s 21st:

I’m not upset with the progression to Berry/Coleman (not that I’m entirely sure who either of them are).  I just hope that further progression to the next celebrity takes as long, if not longer, for people to pass comment on.

But then I guess there’s always scope for things to be worse.
