    hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha......What's up with the woman(?) on the bottom far right? Is she serious? Those glasses are a comic prop, not for everyday use.

    Oh....and...don't forget Ben Stein's much less successful brother (second from left, bottom row)


    Nice find, Dan!!!!!

    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    What a statement with those glasses. 8-|

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    How insulting! Just because these people happen to have certain genetics that make them look the way they do, this is somehow their fault? And just because YOU happen to think particular articles of clothing or accessories are unattractive, doesn't mean everyone does. And what if they or one of their friends or relatives were to overhear/read your nasty comments, what then would you have to say?..........

    Ahhhh, who am I kidding? They really ARE laughably ugly and probably don't have any friends, much less a chance of reproducing .....
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Yes, she's obviously a huge Harry Karry fan!

    When Jesus said "love your enemies", he probably didn't mean kill them.

    The glasses were bad, but my eyes are drawn to the "center square."

    I never knew that the wife of Jabba the Hutt lived in Harrow, England.

    Good for them! Taking up public positions despite having faces only their mothers could love.

    I imagine the LA City Council looks something like this.
