I think someone is cloning me. This is a picture of Joel Horwitz.

  1. sam says:

    U dont all look a like. I can tell an ethnic simularity. but your not twins or brothers.

  2. Tim says:

    I think Lloyd’s dropped *bad behavior by your clone* back in the early ’90s.

  3. bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist and junior culture critic says:

    Similar yes. Now…. turn sideways so we can see your ear lobes.

    I wonder what the bet is that given the ethnic similarity you have a common ancestor more recently than ……. other pairings? I would think so, don’t know so.

    I just found a doppelganger of a friend of mine and sent my friend the website. They could be brothers. Both too busy to bother with checking their backgrounds I suppose but their lives activities also mirror each other.

    In the middle ages, that shit meant something.

  4. Tim says:

    No, bobbo. Are you trying to say that it is because he is secrectly black? {Black!}.

    Unlike your other brother, I don’t guess you’d have much to do with Jesus in a pancake??

    Well, damn. I can’t find the exact clip because MovieClips {registered asshats} has scrubbed YouRube of the relevant material. It went like this —

    **Look at Jesus up there on the burger sign… Right there in the flames…
    **Did you see it Al? No? Damn, I always just miss these things…

    I guess, this will just have to do, for now.

      Tim you linked to one of my favorite films. Box of Moonlight, a wonderful film. I must have viewed it twenty times. IFC often played the movie, this was before the Independent network went commercial.

      A tip for any man raising a young boy, watch this film and then get some fireworks for fun. There’s a moral to the story of the film, one is unplug, another is be sure to remember that a boy needs a Dad to once in a while break the rules and have fun.

      I loved that deer in the woods Timmy. And the tomato fight with ensuing automobile hilarity.

      • Tim says:

        Buck: There it is right there! A CIA nerve gas factory!

        Al: Ohh, I’ve traveled in a circle {Circle Renta-Car Ha!}. That’s not a CIA nerve gas factory, that’s the manufacturing plant I was telling you about…I suppose, if you equipped enough people with windshield wipers then you could take over the world…

  5. Tim says:

    Oh yea, I learned a new word —

    simulacrum

    • bobbo, the Climate Change ALARMIST who doesn't want his kiddies boiled to death as the Oilgarchs are currently Hell Bent on doing, and the Science Denying Far Right are ignorantly supporting says:

      You can sound that one out:

      simular then

      Simular but a “crub” meaning of minor amount.

      Words are fun.

      • jpfitz says:

        Wait, you got kiddies?

        • bobbo, the Climate Change ALARMIST who doesn't want his kiddies boiled to death as the Oilgarchs are currently Hell Bent on doing, and the Science Denying Far Right are ignorantly supporting says:

          Its a simulacrum to reality.

          ((typo above: similar to a “cruMb.” I’m sure all yu’all deciphered that but I’m reaching down to Pedro constantly to help him along. Liberul sheep do that.))

          • jpfitz says:

            Yea, I did take the monicker change as more of a generalization, as in we are all connected somehow.

  6. pedro says:

    Freaky is thinking you two look anything alike

  7. The Beaner says:

    When you meet your doppelganger, it means one of you will die.

  8. McCullough says:

    He has a cowlick…you don’t. Totally different.

  9. Captain Obvious says:

    There are cars driving through your head. That’s gotta hurt.

  10. Aaron says:

    Two Jewish guys who look the same not surprised.

  11. orchidcup says:

    The poor guy must be mortified.

  12. ± says:

                          Joel is better looking.           :)

  13. Uncle Patso says:

    A man once told me I look like Geraldo Rivera.

    I wanted to clock him one, but I didn’t want to cause an international incident. (Happened outside the U.S.)

  14. noname says:

    No cloning needed, a simpler explanation suffices. Maybe your brothers of a different mother or father?

  15. Yawn says:

    Slow news week???

  16. Dead Vets require Obama resign like South Korean PM says:

    If he keeps ufo squirrels in his back yard, you are being body snatched.

    Or he is.

  17. NOT! NOT Bobbo! says:

    Sorry but yea, a couple of Jews with similar body features, oy vey and oy gevalt. Surprised? NO!

    Loved the nature programs. Thanks Marc.

  18. jpfitz says:

    Now it really ain’t bobbo above obviously!

  19. MikeN says:

    We could use more Marc Perkel’s to protest the NSA, TSA, and even SSA. Given the way liberals are trampling free speech, he will soon have to protest the USA as well.
