Stunt-doubles

As you might have noticed, I recently cut off all my hair. I didn't shave it to the skin but I clipped it at a "one." This summer I had the longest hair I've ever had in my life. After our recent heat season,(temperatures of 114 degrees) I decided it was way too hot to keep all the hair. Now that I'm bald, I've been getting quite a few comments. My boss told me I looked like one of those "hari krishna dudes." Another guy I work with said I look like Kojak; I don't see how that could be a compliment. I think, if I look like anyone, it's Curly from the Three Stooges. Who do you think I look like?




Curly, a true genius.


Kojack, who loves ya baby.


Burn Victim looking like someone just insulted his mother.


Paul Schaffer


Hari Krishna dude apparently standing down-wind from something.


Drew Carey


Six Flags old dude-looks kind of like Drew Carey much later in life.


Yul Brenner, one of the coolest bald guys ever.


Mel Cooley, one of the lamest bald guys ever.


Stone Cold-it's like looking in a mirror.


Weird tattooed guy... something tells me he lost a bet or two.

By the way, this post is a blatant rip-off of a post by Bonnie Isabel.

Hehe, Your post was way funnier after seeing Bonnie's post and how she compares herself with famous beautiful latin women. Then you go and compare yourself to, lets say "slightly less classy folk". Now don't get me wrong I hold Yul Brenner and Paul Shaffer in the highest regard, but they still aren't quite as glamorous as the actresses Bonnie has on her site.

Oh, and props for the really cool picture of the Hari Krishna dude!

Yul Brenner demonstrates that some people ought to be bald - I mean he fits the look.

But the dome look isn't for everyone. No seriously. :)

Daniel said, "no, seriously."

Jonathan: you're no Yul Brenner. I'm trying to imagine you sitting next to Steve McQueen on a horse-drawn hearse taking the dead indian to the grave yard saying, "No, but I got nominated real good", and it doesn't work.

On the other hand, I can completely see you in a Seinfeld episode. I'm not sure which one, but you could work out the details I am sure.

The purpose of this post was not simply to see which celebs I look like, it's also to find out if going bald was a bad idea. Let me just tell you, it feels awesome, I may look like a cultist but it feels great, and that goes a long way with me.

Centur0n, can you at least imagine me as the heartless killer robot from Westworld?

So I guess that's two votes for me to grow back my hair.

Yule Brenner is by far the coolest bald guy ever (it's too bad he died of lung cancer), however I'd say you have the Curley look down.

Cheers

Okay fish-taco guy--

Wait a sec. I never compared myself to these 'famous beautiful latin women.' I only was relating names of actresses I've been TOLD I resemble before. The whole post was about how some guy mistook me for Tori Spelling at a restaurant. And on what planet are Tori Spelling and Monica Lewinsky glamorous? While they may have a modicum of fame, they are neither beautiful nor even Latin.

And since when do people ever tell you you look like someone obviously extremely unattractive? When is the last time you overheard someone say, "Excuse me, did you realize you look exactly like Roseanne Barr...or Margaret Thatcher...or Lyle Lovett..."

Bonnie,

I enjoyed your post by the way (at your site). =) And I didn't mean to imply that you personally were claiming that you looked like anyone in particular, although apparently you hold a resemblance to such actresses as Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz and people have mentioned that too you. I think that's very cool. (Also I don't see how resembling Tori Spelling would be a bad thing, Monica Lewinsky however would be.)

I merely enjoyed the contrast between your post and Pecadillos and how Pec willingly compared himself with a fairy goofy group of guys (with the exception of Yul Brenner and maybe Stone Cold) And has had people compare him to Curly and Jason Alexander.

Ok, I think I best get back to work before I get myself in more trouble. ;)

On a side note Calvin Coolidge seems to be about the only "famous" person I resemble. And I hope I'm as cool as either Paul Schaffer or Jason Alexander when I go bald. =)

Someone compared me to "Luther" once - but that was really just my goatie.

The best thing about really, really short hair is that it grips your pillow like sand paper at night - for the first few nights at least.

I found that cool.

No, seriously.

You look like this guy from FMJ.

By the way, "this guy" is actor Vincent D'Onofrio, when he was about your age. D'Onofrio also played the alien Edgar in the first Men in Black, and now stars on Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

Just some house-keeping:

(1) You never say anything nice about C-Train, so I am 98% sure that you're not blog-flirting with him. That you call him the good-looking one (or words to that effect, in case Richard Abanes is checking my citations) leaves me with 2% doubt. I trust your dad is monitoring the blog to make sure nothing that will put him in a pinch is going on, so maybe I'm only about 1% doubtful.

(2) Yul Brenner has something you'll never have: a nondescript European accent (he was son of a Mongolian mining engineer and his Romanian gypsy bride; you sort that out).

(3) The part about e-mailing me is not a joke. E-mail me.

What's interesting to notice, is that while Pec gives the nasties towards the Train. The Train only retaliates in love, with loving comments.

I think it just makes you look like your older brother. In fact, my wife mistook you for Jedi now, maybe two times.

There are some very cool things about having extremely short hair. One is that you never have to worry about it being messed up, the fringe benefit of that being that I could sleep at least 5 minutes later than usual. Another is that a normal bottle of shampoo will last you forever.

However, I must mention that I found it rather annoying that people would want to rub my head. Well, it was mostly annoying, depending on who rubbed it.

Short hair just didn't work out for me though. For one thing, the Army forced me to do it. For another thing, I was gifted by God with enormous ears. You need small ears to get away with the shaved head thing.

Hey Pecadillo,

It's amazing how many posts some crazy photos will generate. :-) I appreciate the spirit in which you posted this article, and I hope you're taking all of the suggestions in good fun.

You forgot to include both Bruce Willis and Jason Stratham. Two fine examples of shaved heads. :-)

Take care.

Yo Dan, while we're on the subject, I also forgot about Sinead O'Connor. What was I thinking???

Wow! I linked from Pyromaniac to your site, and found a pic of my old high school classmate Dan Summers, we called him Danny back then. Seems he's developed a small amount of fame for himself by taking on the name Curly and tattooing 3 stooges all over himself.
