The Importance of being Ernest
Blog Guy, I’m a huge fan of actress Mariel Hemingway’s grandfather. Does he have any surviving children?
Wait a minute. Those aren’t sons, those are just people trying to look like Hemingway!
Gosh, that sounds strange. Shouldn’t they be competing to write like Hemingway rather than look like him?
Nah, this way is more inclusive. It bypasses talent completely and opens it up to any aging plump guy with a beard.
Well, I’ve posted a photo of Hemingway himself, taken the year he won the David Douglas Look-Alike contest.
But… But… Douglas is the guy who just won the HEMINGWAY Look-Alike contest!
