I’d just like to re-affirm my opinion that this was not funny, mostly because there was too little resemblance between the artists-rendition of the alleged rapist and LA news anchor Marc Brown to work (especially the cheeks: the sketch of the perp shows either scarring or sunken cheeks and Marc has among the chubbiest cheeks allowed on TV news) but yes, at that split-second when he was pronouncing the sound “ooo”, Marc’s expression matches the picture very well. I’m just concerned, having seen his performance on Eyewitness News, at how much trouble whoever screengrabbed it went to in order to get that expression match.
But seriously, it’s like saying that Yassir Arafat and Mel Blanc looked alike…
I’m pointing this out partly because I have finally caught up with moderating my comments (in addition to the Akismet anti-spam, I use the option requiring moderation of anything from a first-time commenter), and while blindly dumping comments added to old posts, accidentally(honest!) deleted a comment from somebody who does think it’s funny. My apologies.
But I’m also pointing thins out because I firmly believe that the following picture (screengrabbed from a Jay Leno ‘Headlines’ segment, and released to the wilds of the Web) IS funny.
