Wow, that's such a good pick-up, most of us would have missed it.

Now we know where your next job should be - with one of the weekly mags that feature just this type of thing; and their "separated at birth" similarities are just as startling as your example. Start sending off your CV!!!

Ha, I do remember a flatmate bought a copy of a magazine which had a separated at birth column. Though I was thinking more of the occasional blog posts people do with the same title.

Wouldn't mind getting a job at one of 'the weekly mags', though. It's a living!

There was this company (Lovatts) on the NSW north coast, near Gosford, that put out crossword magazines. They also contracted out to magazines like Picture and Bacon Busters (they weren't picky!) I went for a job with them once. That might have been fun.

It all started in the trash weekly mags; and some bloggers have used the idea.

It worked for about a dozen examples, which means the mags ran out of real matches about 5 years ago, so now they tend to have pictures of two people who look about as similar as you & I do. And the reader is supposed to gasp in surprise & amusement at the "twin-dom" of it all. "OMG - their ears really are exactly alike; how does anyone ever tell them apart!?"

Did you draw that picture, Timbo?

That comment thing said that I am anon, but it is me that left that comment.

TimT said...

No, google image search drew it.

(What's the emoticon-thingy for straight face?)

I'm not saying what I think it looks like, but it's dirty and gross

Ecoli is a vastly superior vegetable and quite nice in a casserole.
