You know the young James Dean of around the Giant period?

I look nothing like him.

According to my last passport but one, I'm the spitting image of Carlos the Jackal

It's when I see my reflection unexpectedly, in a shop or somewhere like that, that I realise how old I'm looking!

I look like my maternal grandmother. I never met her, as she died before I was born, but I have some pictures of her, and agree that the resemblence is strong. Our colouring is different; she had blonde hair and fairer skin than mine.

The girl on the till in the foodstore looked very like Greta Thunberg, but I think one must be 18 years old at least to sell ciggies and alcohol
Saw a familiar-looking curmudgeonly gent too, then I realised I was looking at myself in the mirror :wink:

Apparently I resemble Mark Brandon Read, hence my nickname of "Chopper".

I could almost be a dead ringer for Corbyn but I still have quite a lot of brownish hair :?
Is there a market for doubles of politrickians? Anyone here look like Chairperson May?

Angela Merkel had a male double, Plus One!

Apparently I used to look like John Major but I understand that he has improved with age.

Many years ago I was told I looked like Cliff Richard (I'm 20 something years younger than him), but now I have grey hair and wrinkles, he doesn't.

You may be his Dorian portrait!

Myself, I am looking less and less like Count Dracula on a good night out and more and more like Queen Victoria in her moribund phase following the departure of John Brown. However, when the ladywife notices she will feed me her Special Cake and I will once more be transformed into Victor Mature, complete with banjo eyes and a leer.

Edi Rama, the PM of Albania, bears an uncanny resemblance to me (short greying hair + beard, smiles a lot &c)
Just read about him in the Grauniad
He was voted 8th best-looking out of 199 world leaders
What does that make me?
