You know there’s this idea that we’ve all got dopplegangers out there? People who look exactly like (or scarily alike) ourselves?

I’d just like to point out that I have not taken up a new career as a photographic model. While this, from the back page of The Spectator, was spookily similar (although not as handsome, of course) as myself a few years ago it was  sufficiently similar to have my parents calling up to ask whether I had posed for such a shoot a few years ago (not telling how many!).


The face is a little wrong, the wrong glasses, never worn either rings or boots like that although I did, in fact, have exactly the same jacket and the hair and the beard are about right for some (indeterminate number of) years ago.

Spookily similar to fool my own Mum, eh?

Ah! Another case of ETBS (Evil Twin Brother Syndrome). Be careful, he can cause you a lot of grief if you don't watch out. Mine gets me into trouble all the time. Usually by going and getting drunk and then creating mayhem, although in one of his more creative moments he seduced Hot Chick from HR at a company function. There was hell to pay over that one for which I, of course, got the blame.

At least you have photographic proof of your Evil Twin Brother. Mine is notoriously camera shy.

A striker playing for Mexico in the last world cup looked more like me than I do.

For several months I thought this intense-looking bearded guy who kept getting pictured on your blog was you but actually it was Paul Krugman.

I get this feeling whenever I see Kermit the Frog.
