Quick, Indy! Jump into my pocket!
Blog Guy, please help settle a bet with my yoga instructor’s dental hygienist.
How on earth did you even MEET the dental hygienist of your yoga… Oh never mind, I’m here to settle bets. What’s this one about?
Well, we both think actor Harrison Ford is the coolest dude ever. But I think he’s very tall, while she says he’s really quite short. Who’s right?
Sorry, you lose. He’s a shrimp.
Here’s a photo from a few days ago showing Ford with another actor who’s probably about six feet tall. So by comparison, that would seem to make Ford, oh, roughly 4’10”.
Gosh! But he looks so striking in the Indiana Jones movies!
Sure, but it’s all Hollywood magic. Indy’s whip was really only 18 inches long, to make Ford look like a regular-sized guy.
The “horse” he rode in “Raiders of the Lost Ark” was just a miniature Shetland pony. See how it works now?
But he’s so virile and macho! He has that soothing, manly voice….
The voice is dubbed. The real Harrison Ford talks like Urkel.
Wait! That great Indiana Jones fedora hat…
Was bought at Sears, in the little boys’ department….
