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.
Samwise Gangee simply because I'm fat,and short and have hair on my toes....oh dadgum
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.
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.
Giles from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I was so embarrassed.
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.
My dearest friend, Ian! I can never be anyone but myself. A new faucet of me you still don't know - I signed up for stand-up comedy and there should be a show, can you imagine me finally being the Drama Queen?
I would love to be there, Clapping and "hollerin'" and enjoying it.
I think you would be a riot. Does that mean I have to save up and go to Canada? Or will you be on the world circuit soon?
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.
The white witch from the movie Chronicles of Narnia. She was not a cool witch.
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.
She was played by Kathleen Turner. If you looked like her I think that would be good.
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...
People say I look like Anthony Edwards ('ER', 'Top Gun'). or Quentin Tarantino ('Pulp Fiction'. 'Django Unchained')
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?
My mom, simply because I don't look like any famous people. Nobody has ever compared me to a celebrity, but they always say I look a lot like my mom. But she's weird, so I guess it counts.
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:
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.
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.
There's this fabulous invention called "contacts". I was also wearing them a lot at the time. If you take a look at the other picture, you'll be able to see that as well.
My sister. She is the weirdest person I've been told I look like. Haha
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.!
look up Mr.Rodger's history you'll be surprised ....very surprised
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.
Okay, don't anybody dare laugh! Now, this guy is an animated (and kinda last generation) character, but here it is: Barney Rubble. I said stop that laughing!
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.
I was compared to Edgar Allen Poe for the longest time because my writing was droll and dark.
"Animal" from The Muppets. My girlfriend said that's what I reminded her of when she saw me for the first time... In her defense, I was REALLY drunk and my beard and hair were very long extremely wild.
If that's her defence, what's YOUR defence?
Please know that, as I tease you, I sit here with long hair and a long wild beard.
I guess mine was that I was really drunk too
REALLY drunk... could-not-find-my-feet-to-stand-up drunk
That does make one more of an animal.
One time I had someone tell me I looked like Squidwart, from Spongebob Squarepants. That is probably the weirdest thing anyone ever compared me to...

Is this the weirdest shaped pretzel that you've ever scene?I pulled both of these two pretzels out of the bag at one time. I've never seen a weirder shaped pretzel before in my life. What do you think?

I’ve watched some weird stuff on TV over the years. When I was young Monty Python might have been classified as weird by some, especially the older generation. And recently I’ve watched some quite weird stuff on TV such as:-The American TV Series “A Series of Unfortunate Events”, and...

What do you think is Johnny Depp's weirdest role to date?I first saw Mr Depp in Sleepy Hollow and I was wondering why he always plays weird characters. Do you think he has carved out a niche for himself or is he just 'stereotyped'?

The weirdest insult I can remember getting was in a Denny's cafe. My friends and I were hanging out drinking coffee and putting off going home as late as we could. We had one of those big booths that sit a good sized group. We were minding our own business sharing a piece of sinful chocolate cake...
