So, there's this site that will scan a photo of your face and tell you what celebrity faces yours resembles. We were all giving it a shot together here at work today. As the program scans your face, you have to wait patiently for the results.

Scott got labeled "Kevin Costner" (although he's clearly Bill Paxton)

My coworker Mitch got labeled "Jeff Gordon" (although he's clearly The Count).

Then it was my turn.

The first picture we put in the program claimed it could not find a face. Hmm.

We tried a different photo, let it scan in and waited patiently before it revealed...

Um. Who is this guy? Apparently the computer had to scrape the bottom of the celebrity barrel to find a match for me and the best it could do was Richard Stallman, the infamous computer hacker/weird looking freak.

I hope that you fare better when you try it. Oddly, if you click at the bottom it goes through the other celebrities that resemble you and the next one over was Luke Perry. Hmm.

Anyway, give it a shot and let me know in the comments if you could possibly lose worse at this game than I did.

By the way, this reminds me of I site that I once wanted to build. The idea was that it would show you what your baby would look like if you scanned in photos of two people. The trick was going to be that no matter what photos you put in, the picture would come out as a bad pencil drawing of a baby with tattooed biker arms, a beard, and an eyepatch.

I should still build that site.

At least he looks happy....his life of crime didn't diminish his joie de vivre.

Ha ha!! That is hilarious!
I went to that site and got "Kate Bosworth!" MUCH more flattering than the unibomber guy you got... :)

Erin said...

I got Kate Bosworth, too! She definitely looks much more like you - blonde and with a little nose! For me the best: Petra Nemcova, the worst: Bing Crosby.

Mine wouldn't load for some reason. Maybe that's a good thing. It probably would've pulled up the same pic as Wes'.

Uh, Wes, that made me laugh so hard I woke up the baby. Thanks.

Hey Wes...if it makes you feel any better the site says our baby looks like Yoko Ono. That's not right.
