more lookalikes

Okay, apologies to distant readers of this blog who don't know or care what my friends look like - but yesterday's lookalikes post proved a hit so I have been persuaded to waste a little more time holding up my chums to ridicule. So here's a new batch of dastardly characters. First up, Michi, whose facial furniture may, I suspect, have something to do with comparisons to... well, see for yourself:
Nice one Michi! Elvis Costello. That's set the bar for the coolest lookalike.

Registering perhaps the bizarrest set of results so far is Andrew, who manages to accrue comparisons to Bill Gates, Keira Knightly, Jay Leno and Winston Churchill. He seems to have a bit of a 1920s thing going on there, too:
And, before we get to the last two glamourous ladies of the exercise, here is Dustin, the man they call the Al Gore of Brighton. With extra charisma!
Ali, meanwhile, despite confounding expectations by turning up to the comparisons party with a holiday snap, making her look both healthier and happier than any of the rest of the us, manages a swoonsome list of stunnas matched only by our last entrant...
Ladies and gentlemen, the beautiful Sam:
Gosh.

Hi

It seems to me that it only finds matches according on how your face is positioned int he photo? Which is, of course, just silly.

Hmmmphm

I think that does play a part, but it's more than that, I think; some of them are very accurate - the woman to your right on your one is a dead ringer, and Dan's resemblence to that Owen Wilson picture is striking. And Sam, as we know, looks just like Claudia Schiffer.

I agree with Nat. Face positioning seems to play a significant factor, and seems to have engendered the Al Gore comparison. And the next time you compare me to Al Gore, Jonathan, I am going to break your skinny legs!

Perhaps I'm not the one to be complaining though: Andrew got fathead Jay Leno (whose melon is twice the size of his); Michi got Elvis; and Sam only got 3 men (one of them bald). Very dodgy software indeed.

Oh, AL, I think the software is spot on, it's just you are all having difficulty facing up to some harsh facts....

If they want to believe that they look nothing like Condoleeza Rice / Al Gore / Hilary Rodham Clinton then let them!

Am conscious that I haven't yet skewered a couple of people. Versions of Anne-So, Eleanor, Pete, Andy etc will surely have to follow...

If I'd come up with that software I'd be regretting turning down that job at the BT call centre - as the bathwater starts to turn crimson...
