Potato Face

I recently had to get my picture taken for a visitor's ID card. I'm keenly aware that I'm generally not very photogenic to begin with, but is this picture really as bad as I think it is?

I look either:
a) stoned
b) mentally challenged, or
c) made out of wet Play-Doh

I also seem to have what my friend Stacy would refer to as "Black Licorice Mouth". And there's something weird with the glare on my forehead that makes it look like I have a monobrow. Anyway, I have to wear it hanging on a badge around my neck every time I visit this place until I die. And apparently retakes are not an option. Plus, the image is conveniently stored in a database somewhere for easy retrieval, just in case you "accidentally" lose the badge somewhere and need a replacement. Believe me, I already inquired about it.

Kind of thinking you look like the same colour of orange you were when you were the Oompa Loompa. Seriously - compare them Dan.

You look like the guy that got arrested for huffing gold paint.

Well maybe not exactly. But you don't look happy.

there's also an element of 'i'm-going-to-kick-your-ass' to the pic.

I'm a little scared.

I think your very photogenic! just not in that picture. Remember Dan, Crack is WHACK!

I think that you sould tape a tiny little picture of a bong right next to it. Then it will all make sense.

If you split the picture in half, the top half just looks like a normal sleepy guy...but the second half looks like another larger picture was taped on, giving the whole thing a slightly distorted look...but you've got enough personality to make up for that picture.
Don't you?

That's all this face says.

*snickers* Momma said if I couldn't say nuttin nice I should just point, laugh and walk offense, I still love ya and everything...

I think you look extra hot.
I did laugh for 20 minutes at the wet play doh connection though.

By Blogger Stacy, at 3:09 PM  

d) all of the above. Plus, you do look kinda orange. Been hitting the tanning booths much lately?
I'm guessing "black licorice mouth" means you've got a front tooth missing? Sorry, really, so sorry. It isn't your best...but take comfort in the fact that no one really looks at the those ID badges (tee hee).

the umpah-loompah thing first came to my mind too

Your post brings up another regional saying...ism...whatever;

you say monobrow, I say unibrow....

flip-flops or thongs?

Where I grew-up, we called them thongs. I just went to a beach-party themed rally for work and totally humiliated myself. I made a giant 'thong' out of cardboard and wore it to the party. Joke doesn't work when you call it a flip-flop. The joke was a flop, no one could figure it out. I had people thinking, "Dude, like why are you wearing a surf-board strapped to your crotch?"....oh well, had to be there

Oh so bad.

That's all I have to say.

Oh and you should kick the photographers ass.

By Blogger Colleen, at 6:33 PM  

Oh, I don't think it is so bad. It makes you look a bit older than you are. Just imagine yourself wearing some of those really bizarre Elton John-style early 1970s oversized sunglasses, looking like that underneath them, and it will put a smile on your face.

It sure is a better picture of you than my current drivers license picture is of me!

I think you are better off hanging such a picture around your neck than some of the ones that have been taken of you on your recent bar-hopping escapades!

I like Oompa Loompas!

By Blogger jali, at 12:37 PM  

I think that the photo shows what a warm, caring & helpful person you are - and on that basisi, any chance of modifying "Falling George" by replacing the head with Tony Blair's, and call it "Teflon Tony" for us in the UK?

Looks like someone had too much sodium the night before. Tell them no MSG at the Chinese take-out.
