Weekend Discussion Thread: Someone Who Looks Like a MST Character

Alert regular Sitting Duck suggests:

Is there someone in your life who bears an uncanny resemblance to a cast member of either MST3K or one of the films they have used? Could be a relative. Could be that dickweed in the next cubicle who uses your stapler without permission. Could be the java jerk who serves you your daily cappuccino. In my case, the organist at the church I attend looks almost exactly like Mike made up as Jack Perkins.

Have at it!

    I knew a young lady in high school named Jackie who had an uncanny resemblance to Tanya from BOGGY CREEK II right down to the eye shadow and tiny cutoffs. After high school she went on to study Pharmacy at the University of Houston, not Creature Studies. To the best of my knowledge she did not socialize with Beasts if you don’t count me.

    I always thought that LA Chargers QB Philip Rivers looks a lot like Mike.
    (For the record, I love Mike but hate Rivers.)

    This may not count, but our neighbors had a dog, Abby, that looked exactly like Shep from The Painted Hills. Abby was a nice dog, very friendly and a little goofy, but every now and then I’d look at her and think she might be equally capable of exacting revenge on people who wronged her owners. She was the oddest looking Basset hound I’ve ever seen.

    I have a manager at work who looks like Mikey “I didn’t steal no bike, neither!” from ‘Teenage Strangler. He isn’t as whiny and sensitive as Mikey, though.

    I saw a large piece of filthy shag carpeting draped over the side of a garbage bin that reminded me of the Creeping Terror.

    I do not know if a “something” who looks like a MST character counts?

    There’s a concrete bridge abutment about four miles away from where I live that looks exactly like several of the actors in MSTied films; if anything, it’s more emotive than them.

    I know that bridge abutment. The apex of its performing career came two years ago when a chunk of concrete the size of a pumpkin broke loose and crashed to the ground. It was perfect theatrical timing as no pigeons were smushed.

    Believe it or not, I had an aunt who looked like Mamie van Doren, minus the large bust. Perhaps needless to say, she was the wild peroxided child of my dad’s family, did all the crazy stuff, got married and divorced a bunch of times. She outlived all her numerous (and tamer) siblings. Good ol’, bad ol’ Aunt Min!

    There once was a bus driver at my old school who was the spitting image of Rowsdower. Similar in haircut and eye color but minus the ‘stache.

    She was a nice lady.

    There was a physicist I used to work with who looked just like Professor Mackin (sp?) from Prince of Space. After seeing that episode, I could no longer see him when he got serious about something without this little voice in my head saying “I’m gonna mess you up.”

    I’ve seen many a package of hot dogs that were the spitting image of the monster from Horror From Party Beach. Weird, huh?

    Jack Frost –

    My older brother got out of the Air Force when Vietnam Nam was just ginning up and quickly transformed himself into a long haired, bearded GI Bill college student as was the style then. When he reached his sixtieth birthday he was still sporting that look only he had transformed into a silver haired “Morozko”. He does not have a staff that turns things into frost, but he does have a six foot hiking stick he made out of a yucca plant flower stalk which he had to use once to subdue a water moccasin snake that his Australian cattle dog RD (Ringo Dingo) was having a close encounter with. I’ve been encouraging him to acquire a fur-lined sequined cape, but those are hard to find in Texas.

    I just rescued a small snapping turtle from the middle of the road. Very ungrateful, and something of a badass–hissed, snapped a couple of times,and if looks could kill! I never thought a reptile’s face could express such withering disdain! He could’ve been Gamera’s bad little brother, the one who is decidedly NOT “friend to all children”. I half expected him to breathe fire at me.

    Jimmy Clem (Old Man Crenshaw – Boggy Creek II) –

    I actually met Mr. Clem in Texarkana back in the early 2000s. He was a friendly giant who was happy to talk about movies and cattle. He made his money in road construction and used that to build a highly regarded cattle breeding operation outside of Texarkana. His family was charming and laughed at my silly jokes about “little creatures”. RIP

    I hadn’t thought about it before, but now that you mention it, I know somebody who is sort of a 4/5 scale Tor Johnson.

    And now I’m in real trouble. He’s a semi-big shot at the office, but from now on whenever I see him I’m going to have to suppress the urge to ask him if it’s time for go to bed.
