Tag Archives: Separated at birth


This is what the baby looks like today, about 18 years after Nirvana’s Nevermind album originally shipped. The photo shoot took forever because we wanted to capture the dollar bill just right and the model had to hold his breath for a while.

I call the photo: “Lenirvana”. Click on it for a slightly larger version.

The MKX brings you another uncanny resemblance:

Redrum, redrum

My cousin Alan decided to go through old photos and upload them to Facebook. What I saw surprised me deeply: His brother Yann played Danny Torrance, the creepy kid from Kubrick’s classic The Shining. See for yourself:

Other striking resemblances seen in The MKX®:

Separated at birth: Peggy Hill and Sarah Palin

A brilliant move by the Republican candidate John McCain: Pick a running mate that looks just like King of the Hill‘s housewife Peggy Hill. They have my vote. No, never mind. They don’t.

Uncanny resemblance

Above: Bert and Ernie.

Below: Marcos and Euclides.

Marcos Kirsch and Jose Euclides Correa look like Bert and Ernie.

My gut tells me I should sue their asses off for using our likeness for profit. My team of legal advisors tell me I should not take on The Jim Henson Company for this. Apparently Bert and Ernie have been around longer.

What do you think? Do I have a case?

The Handsome Ahmadinejad

Jew-loving Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad looks just like Santo Poco’s terrorizer and notorious bandido El Guapo. I wonder if they are related. Courtesy of Stylus Magazine.

But not only the rich and famous have their lost twins. The everyday guy may have one too… see Exhibit A, Exhibit B, Exhibit C.

Shimon Peres is…

I was sent this disturbing image yesterday.
To the left, a young, innocent Shimon Peres, statesman.
To the right, his lost son, Michael Richards, actor… a.ka. as Kramer.
