Separated at birth?

Rasputin

Svengali

Czarina Alexandra Romanov, Trilby (a fictional character), and Her Royal Canine Highness Abigail of Canton all have their suspicions.

In a parallel universe, this post having been published on February 14th, it might have been titled My Funny Valentine. Here's Linda Ronstadt singing that very song, complete with its rarely heard verse (3:17). I'd like to think she's singing it to me.

I hope you're not comparing yourself to the other two. You do not, repeat do not look nearly as creepy or manic as they do.

Emma, thank you for your vote of confidence! It was the commonality of having beards and wearing black clothing that I noticed that led to this post. I also noticed that you didn’t say that I do not look creepy or manic, only that I do not look as creepy or manic as the other two, for which I guess I should be truly grateful!

I cannot remember when I last hear that song and I can't say that I recalled any of the words although the tune was familiar enough. Linda Ronstadt certainly has a powerful voice.

I disagree wholeheartedly with Emma's comment. In that picture, dressed in black, you look positively Machiavellian.

The common wisdom which says pets look like their owners (or owners like their pets) seems to be on the money!

Graham, I think I remember hearing Della Reese sing it way back when. She gave it her own unique treatment. Her first big hit, I think, was “Don’t You Know” which was actually Musetta’s Waltz from La Boheme.

YP, perhaps I should have included his picture with the others!

kylie, I presume you mean our l facial expressions and the prominence of our ears.
