I still don’t get the whole viola thing

Here’s how it is.

We had a product rep come into the office today, to drop off some materials.  This is the email conversation which ensued between Esteemed Co-Worker* and myself:

Kate:

Know who he looks like?

___

ECW:

Your momma!

Actually, I don’t know.  Who?

___

Kate:

OK upon further inspection it’s mostly just from the side (nose is wrong), but I totally see a David Cross influence.  More David-Cross-esque than an actual lookalike.

___

ECW:

Do all 40 year old, balding with glasses look like David Cross to you?  You anti-David-Crossist!!!

___

Kate:

How does that make me anti-David-Cross?   That don’t make no sense at all. Not one whit.

___

ECW:

If one thinks all black people or white people look alike, one is routinely accused of “they-all-look-alike syndrome”, a low-grade version of racism.  If all 40 year old, balding with glasses men look like David Cross to you, then, viola, [I think he meant “voila”] you have a low-grade version of anti-David-Crossism.  It’s all very logicamal.

___

Kate:

I’d call that David-Crossist (an analogue to racist) since there’s no “anti” about it.

Also, I don’t know where violas factor into the whole thing – unless you’re talking about the Other David Cross, which makes little sense to me but what do I know?

___

ECW:

Violas factor into a lot of things.  The question I have for you, how could you hate Tobias?

___


Now, after I picked myself up off the floor and wiped the tears out of my eyes, you *know* what I had to do:

And that’s what’s hanging on the wall behind my desk, right now.  Right this very instant.  I’m looking at it as I type this.  I can’t tear my eyes from it.

I thought you’d like to know.

*Or “Excremental Cow Waste.  Whichever you prefer.

  1. Ha! I work with a vendor at my job that looks like Randy Quaid in Kingpin. My boss even agrees.

  2. This amuses me greatly. I think everyone should have Tobias hanging up in their workspace.

  3. random, absolutely nothing to do with your post but I can’t haelp myself:

  4. This is funny to me for my BFF’s husband who is only 30 something looks like David Cross, minus the balding thing, but give him 10 years.
