I'm assuming that you've lost the suit and tie since ER, have you reverted back to the mean (the middle photo?)

Been retired 17 months and, if memory serves (which is questionable), I have worn a suit twice since then. I am reverting to the mean a bit but no mustache or side burns, and I am probably sticking to wine unless I visit Amsterdam or Mexico.

For a guy who takes care to dye his hair, even when he's hiding in a spider hole, Saddam doesn't take very good care of his teeth....

He must be part British....

I think the guy holding him beat him up a wee bit before the photo was taken. Probably a little blood and dirt on his teeth.

Re: Post your picture... Or numbers... Or whatever

This photo shows the crash of a Navy F6F-3 Hellcat aboard the USS Enterprise (CV-6) in November 1943. The plane's ruptured belly fuel tank caused an instant fire.

The guy climbing up the side of the aircraft, with his boot on the ruptured fuel tank and flames all around, is the Lieutenant Walter L. Chewning, Jr., USNR (Catapult Officer on duty). He is assisting the pilot, Ensign Byron M. Johnson in getting out of the burning aircraft. Both escaped without significant injury.

But, really, the photo says it all.

Close your eyes and picture a VW bug--with a grey moustache.

You're ugly and round, with a grey moustache? And you break down a lot and smell bad?

Sorry, that was too easy
