You gotta be kidding me! (Part One)

My friend Allison posted on Facebook about this website that lets you find a celebrity that most looks like you.

Ooooooh...this was going to be fahhhhhhhhhn!
HAH! Let's see who they think I look like!

I knew someone had told my daughter Joni, one of the Celebrity Lookalike websites had said she looked like Melanie Thornton, the Pussy Cat Doll.


The website I checked said she closest resembled Beyonce (I think it was a high 90% likeness).
Oooh, I bet my daughter would so like that.

(Cos Joni herself is a singer - don't believe me? Her band, Under Headlights, has so far produced two singles, "Jangan Kau Tiada" and "For Sure". You can check out their website. How creative these people are! But then again, I'm her mother and slightly biased :)
... slightly. But oh so proud of 'em.)
So where was I? Oh.

What do you think?

Yes, I was starting to like this website alright...

It also said Joni looked like Hayden Panittiere. Okay, this is getting interesting...

But I always thought Joni looked a lot like Eva Longoria, y'know? So I got Desperate and looked for photos on my own and matched them:

See the pic below....

Doesn't she, doesn't she?

So cute I can't stand it.

(Who do you think Joni resembles the most?)

Ok, so this was getting to be really fun. And mischievous me just had to, right???

So I took the few shots I have of myself (mind you, close up shots are obviously preferred, so that left me with even fewer options)...

and the very FIRST one was this:

and it said I looked like..



I mean-


His eyes are not like mine!
His nose is far off! literally.
His lips are so much thinner!
and.. and..his wrinkles!
And his EYEBROWS!!


NOW WAIT A MINUTE MISTER.....(I mean the website, not the poor man in the picture that I do not know at all, celebrity or not, and don't care to know. And I don't know if he would be more insulted than I was! Maybe I'll find out where he is and post this to him...)

After the initial shock, I knew they must have done that on purpose, just to whet my vain appetite, y'know? hmmph.

Other suggestions got better...

Zoe Tay

Mandy Moore

So, with my interest thoroughly piqued, I looked for other photos I could use.

Shirley MacLaine

You have to google your own celebrity lookalike website cos I had great difficulty downloading these photos from different ones. And then I forgot where I got what from....but for starters you can try

Again, be sure your photo is a large close up, preferably of you alone, not standing with another person. I discovered that the hard way.....

Ozzy Osbourne

They were saying that the kids' hot air balloon craft resembled Ozzy Osbourne! hahahahaha!

How do I know they were not referring to me? Cos they said in this photo, I looked like

...............................................................................................................................Perez Musharraf - 57%

=.= sigh.

Who needs to look like a celebrity anyway?
Aren't we all uniquely beautiful? wink wink.
