Stephen Colbert Is On Notice Again, And Separated At Birth Continues

Okay, so I was watching The Colbert Report last night, and once again, I am convinced Stephen Colbert is reading my blog and stealing ideas from it. I made this charge before, called him out on it, and...nothing.

Did you really think something would come of it? Neither did I. But I digress. Anyway, Stephen was doing a segment about Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and put up a graphic of Muppet Guy Smiley! Did I not just do two posts about Muppet lookalikes?! For those of you who are not familiar with either Guy Smiley or Mitt Romney, here is a helpful comparison:

I happen to agree, especially now, since Mitt has begun using some Grecian Formula.

However, if you look closely at Guy's most outstanding facial feature--no, not the popeyes--you'll soon be struck by the overwhelming feeling of familiarity...
Those eyebrows! And...

Holy Crap. Even the nose is the same.

  1. Nance, I think this borders somewhere along the lines of......GENIUS! :) Love it!

  2. That Stephen deserves a wag of the finger!

    Wag of the finger to YOU!

    Careful about who you accuse of copying who... the episode you refer to was first aired 2 weeks ago -

    So, who should we suspect of copying who? Hmmmm?

    Warning - next week is reruns, too.

    Guy Smiley is sooo much cuter, though.

  5. tera--oh, flattery will get you...everywhere!!

    i.h.--I would shamelessly wag almost anything at stephen.

    Jennie--dammit. you know, i never once thought about that possibility! i came into the show about 5 minutes late and had no idea it was a rerun. sigh. but anyway, thanks so much for stopping by and adding to the din here at the Dept! hope you do so often!! geeze...TWO WEEKS!?!?! you'd think I'd have noticed. sigh.

  6. girlanddog--than whom? Mitt, yes. BW? NEVER. LOL.

    Guy Smiley is cuter and his religion doesn't tell him that he gets to rule his own planet some day. I'm just saying.

  9. How I wish I were not familiar with Romney and that he had NEVER been Governor of my state!!

    Vintage DoN: Well, I thought I would wet myself. I don't know which was funnier: the receptionist with her sterling advice (JUST.TAKE.THE FLASHLIGT) or the other one... who reminded me so much of... me! Always looking for logic where it is not.

  11. Mitt even has the Muppet name. I think he is a Muppet. And Smiley is clearly in need of an updated haircut.

  12. Perfect!

    And, my dear, the baby that you linked me to, I am hesitant to "fug" a child, if you know what I mean? And would the mom be cool with that?

    scratches head

  13. ortizzle--i know! i know!

    wordgirl--you can "just say" any old time you want to here at the Dept. i'm just sayin'.

    anali--sorry for the flashback. but really, the resemblance is uncanny. stephen is genius.

    ortizzle Take two--re: vintage post. that was the best thing i got from the dr. that day.

    scarlet--who the hell names his kid after a piece of baseball or cooking equipment? i don't get it. makes me wonder (but not enough to look it up)what the rest of the romneys are named...gasket? rake? plug? bulb?

    gina--i know, but she put it up there and asked for comments. her husband even hated the outfit. you could have probably "written around it." but i get you. no reason to alienate a top-tier blogger, either.

    jen--most muppets are.

    Hello! I clicked over from Mrs. Grumpy. This is so funny. The eyebrows! The nose! Ha ha!

  15. swistle--say hi to Mrs. Grumpy for me! and thanks for the comment. stop back again.


Oh, thank you for joining the fray!
