The Oral Report

Standing up in front of the class was never so much fun!

The rantings and ravings of a mom of three wonderful girls as she finds new love while working like a dog and shaking her fist at the system. You know. Pretty much like everybody else.

All This Without a Rubber Nose

According to this article, Charles Grodin (you know it looks just like him) has the perfect face for comedy.

How can that be?

I demand a recount!

I mean, need I say any more than ISHTAR?

Ha! Well, this is the sort of thing that arises from taking soft sciences and hooking them with the publish or perish dictum of academia.

You definitely score points for finding a closer match than the "scientists" in the article did, though. This definitely looks more like a pod-grown version of Grodin than it does Ricky Gervais. Then again, they conducted this "research" using a sampling of 20 British comedians, so the results were bound to be strangely limited.

Mike -

Yep, the (20) British comedians thing definitely had to skew the results (though the thought of throwing Carrot Top and Christopher Lloyd in the same gene pool is beyond frightening).

The "pod-grown version" is pretty right on. He's almost got that Stepford look, doesn't he. The waxy skin...the glazed eyes..."Yes, I'll make with the funny now." Creepy.
