Pennsitivity101 is going with Alter Egos this week.
Prominent figures, but who would you match as their alter ego?
Bozo the Clown. No-one would suspect that one orange-haired, goofy-talking fool was really a different orange-haired, goofy-talking fool. The only danger might be that there would accumulate a critical mass of inane silliness, and we could have a political and philosophical meltdown, and a severe case of Estonia Syndrome – because China wouldn’t want anything to do with it.
Mae West. The bloom is off Madonna’s rose. The line, ‘Come up and see me sometime.’ is beginning to sound a little desperate.
3. Victoria Beckham
The Wicked Witch of the West. Don’t tell me that you haven’t thought that too! 😳 “Fly, my pretties – and bring me back all the profits that my Nigerian Prince scams legitimate businesses earn.”
4. Roger Federer.
John McEnroe. Finally, Roger the quiet, Roger the stoic, Roger the well-mannered, could let his internal Dennis the Menace loose once in a while.
5. James Bond
Thomas Stewart, owner/proprietor of the finest artisanal oat-based vodka distillery in all of Scotland. ‘Tell the Sassenachs that it’s exclusive and eco-friendly, with a low carbon footprint, and soon they’ll be at Hadrian’s Wall, throwing Pounds and Euros at Glencoe, to purchase it. They will be shaken – and stirred.
6. Ebenezer Scrooge
Stay-Puft, the Marshmallow Man. Give him a little scare three times in one night and he goes all soft and mushy and sweet. If this keeps up, soon I’ll be the only grumpy old dude left. 😉
7. H.G. Wells
Project manager for Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin space project. He could show them how to actually get off their butts, and off the surface of the planet.
8. Agatha Christie
Madame DeFarge. Actually, Agatha Christie has caused more deaths, as she sat knitting, knitting, knitting her devious murder plots together.
A bank manager. A critic once savaged one of Lee’s programs in a newspaper review. An assistant told him of the pan, and asked if it upset him. Liberace replied, “I cried all the way to the bank.”
10. Winston Churchill
A Cuban cigar-maker with a pet bulldog.
