I don't think so...

Ok, so our Senior Product Manager has recently informed me that I bare a striking resemblance to a certain Muppet character;

(Copyright Muppets- please don't sue me for pulling this picture off the internet.)

So, A) I don't have red hair that stands on end and 2) I have never worn a lab coat and tie in my entire life, let alone to work.


(No copyright- I took the picture myself.)

Now, I admit that I have spent time around beakers, but I refuse to admit to looking like Beeker.

Meaningless poll time now; by way of comment, you can vote to settle this little dispute. Voting ends tomorrow. I hate to think that my name may have to be changed to Beeker, so throw me a bone here...

you do have the kind of spiky hair, it's not red but it's still there... the beady eyes, check... so you do have some resemblance to beeker, but a "striking" resemblance i think not, maybe a passing similarity… to me you will always be action jackson!

ps - nice wall calendar... i have the same one on my wall but it has more stuff written on it...

Victoria says yes...

I say only from the nose up. I agree, the resemblance is there, but not exactly striking. Perhaps if you had a great big, hulking neck you'd be a dead ringer.

Haha! I'll go with "from the nose up" as Bernie says. Of course only because you brought the subject up though. I never would have made the connection otherwise. LOL.

Well, according to your daughter's drawing you do or did, at some point, have red hair...so...hmmm...

James said...

Funny stuff. Yah, I can see the slight resemblance to Beeker with just a hint of Fozzy Bear for good measure. Maybe you should have shaved before the picture to get the full Beeker effect.

tim, your daughter's portrait of you looks EXACTLY like the muppet. you're not going to win this one. consider shaving your head.

You could go for a "David Clinger Special" Maori facial tattoo . . . that would either make people forget about the Beeker comparison or just scare them into not saying anything about it.

First off, the drawing isn't by Tim's daughter...it's by Tim. There's a reason he's the brand manager and not the graphic art's director.

Second, he looks like BEAKER in the upper body too. Apart from his elephentine legs, he's really just a neck with ears.
