You Look Marvelous

When I steal an idea, I admit it (unlike Dilbert's Scott Adams, who hasn't come clean for stealing my Bill Gates for president proposal!), so this next item was lifted directly from Bob Brown, a former colleague and executive editor of Network World.

Bob discovered a wacky new site where you upload your photo and learn what celebs you look like. Bob, a world record-holder in the yo-yo and former national toboggan competitor, ran Bill Gates (who looks like Placido Domingo) and Steve Ballmer (who resembles Michael Moore) through the process, along with a host of other vendor execs.

As for me, I'm not sure if I'm ugly, good-looking or a woman: Apparently, I look like Al Gore, Viktor Yushchenko (after his face was destroyed by dioxin poisoning), Christopher Walken, Leslie Neilsen, Pierce Brosnan and Samantha Fox.
