Separated at birth?

Is it just me or do these two look alike?

Comedian Buddy Hackett (right)

The resemblance is even more startling when you hear the Congressman speak.


  1. You are right and they do sound exactly alike. When I do listen to him, which I try not to, I have to really concentrate to understand!

    I came from Putz and I'm so glad he found you. Or should I say, you found him!

  2. I had never thought of it before, but you are so right.

  3. bob, men like me were and are destined to be hermits...alone...offenses ere they come can only be remidied by a closed mouth, folded hands, and a wry little smile...nough said...except that billy ray barnwell knows what i am talking about

  4. Thank you for commenting, everyone!

    Debbie - Welcome to my blog! I see from your profile you are from North Carolina. Mrs. RWP grew up in Wilson and has relatives living in Smithfield. Come back often, Debbie.

    Richies - I thought of it the first time I ever saw Barney Frank.

    Putz - I'm glad you are commenting again and I hope you return to posting on your own blog again soon. I have tried to read between the lines of your comment, and I think what you are saying is that self-control is the gift that keeps on giving. I doubt very much, though, that Billy Ray Barnwell would know what you are talking about.
