Mug-shots December 27, 2005Posted by BiB in Uncategorized.
From Finland for Thought, this is a bit of a hoot, in a nicely narcissistic way. You upload a mug-shot of yourself (or whomsoever you happen to have pictures of, of course) and it tells you whom you most look like, although I have a sneaky suspicion it matches pose as much as anything else. But anyway. A huge dent for my confidence, because I only look like women, whereas I’ve always thought I was a brutally masculine lump of beefcake. But the men I most look like – although perhaps their database only has 12 photos – are Marcello Mastroianni, John Travolta, Eminem and Muhammad Ali. Oh well. Makes a change from being told I look like fucking Paul Mc-fucking-Cartney. But the person I absolutely most look like, way more than anyone else, to my mystification, is Katie Holmes. I am equally mystified, and almost proud, to say that, to some extent, I look like Helena Bonham Carter and – this is my proudest moment – the great BS. Go and upload a (face-on, it can’t cope with profile shots) snap immediately.
