Animal Freakin' Planet

I'll probably catch hell for this, but have you ever noticed that how certain famous folks look like animals? Here, I'll show you what I mean:

Paul McCartney sorta looks like a turtle:

And Coach K, the basketball coach for Duke, is sort of ratty looking:

Understand, I'm not saying these folks posses animal attribute filled personalities.

Mr. McCartney sure seems nice, and can play musical instruments waaaay better than an average terrapin. You remember that video for 'I Got my Mind Set On You' ? A turtle could not make a video that blew my 11 year old mind the way that one did.

In that vein, Coach K is not, to the best of my knowledge, a scavenging, cheese eating fellow. He may look a little rodenty - hell, he may even like cheese, but that doesn't make him a rat. I don't know crap about basketball, but I assume that to be a coach you've got to do more than squeak and spread the Black Death.

Which brings us to today's topic. An article in the NY times today featured a picture of Mr. Vince Vaughn.

Mateo and I know he looks like some sort of forest mammal, but we can't decide on which one.

I'm voting for sloth:

But Mateo thinks he bears a strong resemblance to some sort of small jungle cat.

And what the hell do I know? I'm a freaking fruit.
Random Fruit Fact: The Fig

People who eat figs are easy to spot,

"your average fig eater has a perpetually dry mouth. Look for people who drink lots of water or juice. Or lick their lips when they're not talking about Jesus."

Apparently, God don't like no figgies. I don't care though, they're sacrilicious. Read more about the focus of my heathen appetite, here.

    I vote for a racoon. He has the perfect racoony eyes and even his ears work. Not too far off from a sloth (and a sloth has more of his smirky smile)

    I vote for the sloth. I think it's the hair.
    Elsa laughed (in a good way) when I told her about your day of the run.

    Dr Phil looks like a gecko to me --or what I think a gecko looks like.

    As for figs? I don't give a fig about them.

    You know, that sloth totally does it. He completely resembles a sloth, except not so furry. Darn!

    Didja ever notice the Olsen Twins look like a pair of ducks in wigs?

    The younger, more debonair version of Vince Vaughn, circa 1997 (think of the movie Swingers) was a sloth.

    The fatter, more balding version of Vince Vaughn is a raccoon.

    There. I settled it.

    This one was beyond the scope of my expertise, so I called in a consultant. My 9-year-old says, "He looks like a bull. Definitely a bull." There you have it.

    Sloth...even though they are my favorite animals EVER, and I think he's gross...He's a sloth.

    Ya know, VV isn't a bad looking guy or anything, but SOMEONE, PLEASE get that man a soothing eye mask or some sort of serum to help his baggy under-eye area! Perhaps an allergy pill? Maybe just more sleep. But he's too young to be looking like that. (I wish someone would perform a similar service for Matt LeBlanc.)

    You said it Ern! Matt's looking like Death warmed over these days. Vince isn't too becoming either with his bags.

    I was thinking badger, but sloth is really good!

    i don't mean to be the music nazi or anything... but george harrison is the beatle who did "i got my mind set on you".

    all this humans-resembling-animals talk has just got me trying to figure out what animal i might look like. the only thing i've come up with is a shaggy sheepdog... how sad for me. (although they are darn cute).
