    Who was the weirdest person you were compared to?

    Maybe the weirdest should not be the person, but comparison itself.  I was compared to Lady Gaga or Evita Peron.  I look somewhat like Karishma Kapoor.  But last week, my new acquaintance told me that I remind her of Boris Yeltsin.  I could not think of anything more random or weird or both.  Other than just both of us being Russian...  She said Yeltsin was better-looking than Gorbatchev.  I don't want to look like any of them.  I am not quite sure was is a compliment or an invitation for a fight?  What is your story? Please share.

    Years ago I was told that I looked like Doug Llewellyn (the then-current host/commentator on "The People's Court")...apparently we had a similar hair do.

    In college when I was wearing my hair long, some folks told me I looked like Dave Pirner, lead singer of Soul Asylum. He was definitely cooler than Doug Llewellyn so I could live with that. smile

    Velma from Scooby Doo...but I think I'm cuter. LOL. At least she's smart though. I've also been told I look and act like Daria (that cartoon on MTV back in the day).

    about 15 years ago I wore my hair a bit longer than now, but two different people at different places stopped me and said I looked like Willie Nelson. We are both Scandinavian but aside from that I don't think so.

    Dearest Svetlana, I was always obsessed by Eva Peron and the subsequent Opera, 'Evita' is one of the most heart wrenching pieces I know. 
    Karisma Kapoor is also one of my great loves (!).  I first saw her in 'Fiza' with Jaya Bachan and Hrithik Roshan and was amazed at her loveliness and the great acting in that film.
    I don't think I have been likened to anyone strange or exciting, but perhaps... just perhaps your friend confused you with Mikhail or Boris because your friend's eyes were closed and your beautifully sad and expressive voice conjured up the land of your birth.
    That  was one of the first things I noticed about you when we spoke... your delicious Russian tones.  Please never get rid of that facet to your personality and aura.  Never change in any way.

      Ha-ha-ha!  No, there will be a video, not for distribution, but I'd like to have something for youtube - the press will be there - it is "Laughing Like Crazy" for people with mood disorders - laughter healing, but it's a real show - 300 audience.

    When I used to sell real estate, the other Realtors in my firm called me "Serial Mom" after the very sweet character in that movie who was a great mom and a kind person ... except that she quietly killed people who irritated her!  (LOL)  My co-workers said that I was so nice and sweet that I had to have a dark side!!  (I never knew whether or not to take that as a compliment, so I just laughed and shrugged it off.)

      You could have taken it as an invitation for a fight - I will be looking for a dark side, too. Every virtue has the other side - its opposite. Frugal can be seen as cheap, you know the drill.

    Andy Kaufman - his character "Latka" from the show "Taxi."  Come to think of it, he wasn't so weird or bad looking at that, but his character was a riot.  A few kids in high school said I reminded them of "Latka" - back in the days "Taxi" was in syndication...

    Alfred E. Newman from MAD Magazine.  My ears stuck out as a child I had to grow into them.  I used to have freckles and reddish hair when I was young too, add the gap between my two front teeth and I was the spitting image of the cartoon character.

    Generally I am the weird one, so people don't compare me to weird celebrities.  They compare me to random people like

    Him: "...that Russian guy at Luby's who serves the salads.  He was weird like you."
    Me: "That was me."
    Him: "No it wasn't!  You don't work at Luby's!"
    Me: "How do you know that wasn't an alternate universe version of me?"

      That is a good point you are making. What was the weirdest comparison in my Russian days? All that comes up is when my teacher of music said "Could you please turn your beautiful Greek profile towards me?" Was he joking? Do I look like Greek or geek?

    Adolf Hitler.  A student got very angry at me some years back and proceeded to tell me how much like Hitler I was.  It wasn't a warm fuzzy, but then, I did come down on him and make him get back to work, so there it is.  I will profess, as a result, he passed.

      I would not feel too bad about it. He was simply angry, but I think Adolf Hitler is misunderstood. If you take his personality type ENFJ - I have the same, so did Che Guevara, so did Hamlet. It is a question of how you look at it. I don't like Gaga..

    I have been mistaken for a few random people. Some I have known, some I have not. "I have one of those faces."

    There are three famous personalities I have been compared to:
    1.John Lennon
    2.Jesus
    3.Jebus (Yes, the Simpsons version of Jesus. The guy said I looked too much like Jesus for him NOT to call me Jesus, but that he felt that was sacrilegious. So he compromised and called me Jebus.) That's probably my winner for weird.

    It's not as easy to see the Jesus correlation in my current photo, check my Halloween costume on my State Trigger hub if you want to see it.

      Oh, I believe you. It's not whether you look like someone, it is that you were compared, so in someone's head the resemblance is real.

      With long hair and a beard, I would be confused if people argued with the Jesus correlation, to be completely honest. I fit the classic look: Long wavy light brown hair and a full well shaped beard. It's a fun talking point.

      Twilight Lawnsposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Now i'm confused.  I can't remember seeing any photographs of Jesus wearing glasses.  Maybe he was vain, and took them off when he had a family photo taken.  Or it didn't do anything for his image.
      I'll have to do a bit of research.

    I was often compared and labeled "Mister Rogers" in his neighborhood. At first I was a bit angry. Later I learned that Mr. Rogers was a minister of a church and a decorated war hero, besides being a well known lead in a daily program for kids.. Now I welcome the comparison. Bring it on.!

      Funny! I had no clue that Mr. Rodgers was that cool--I just liked his show when I was a kid.

      I used to work with a Ned Flanders (from The Simpson's). Since he was around before Simpson's, I'm suspicious of where their inspiration for Ned came from.

    So we were nervous and applying for my wife's citizenship. We had hundreds of documents, photos and proof of our marriage. The interview process was brutal and scary.
    20 years before in a different time a man was a rebel attorney, out of La Jolla California. He had represented the interviewer in a civil rights case. The lawyer was a crazed litigator for minorities and refugees. The man that the interviewer knew was a young brash, take no prisoners man. He was an aggressive advocate lawyer that the establishment finally brought down. But he was famous among refugees and hurt minorities. He was known as El Hombre or the Lu Man. He ran an under ground railroad to shuffle battered women.
    The man was long gone.
    I was accused of being such that man. Our citizenship was granted immediately. Word spread throughout the place of who the man was claimed to be. Hand shakes from security guards, to clerks to interviewers were exchanged.
    I had been accused and convicted as a man who had brought justice and citizenship to many.
    I am not worthy of this man's attention. But I did know him when he was full of vinegar and spice and paid his bills by the blood spilt by others.
    So whoever he was he is no more. And the interviewer was right I shared the same name. And we remain friends this day.
