This case is unsolvable!

The outside book drop is a veritable Treasure Type Q; never know what arcane goodies one will unearth. Alright, the magic books are usually way overdue engineering texts & those rods of smiting are only chewed-up pens or pencils, but a misty morning past gifted me this shiny, elegant collectible card, unadorned with any of that ostentatious verbiage known as "information."

Coworker after coworker was interrogated & each returned naught but a puzzled visage & though one could say there's a passing, stylized resemblance to the late, great Billy Mays, do you really feel compelled to buy a Hercules Hook?

Thus, I pose unto you, vague acquaintances, who is this man?

First correct answer receives a year's supply of OxiClean.

It's this dude, now where's my Oxy?

Randal Graves said...

I think someone's had too much hot sauce.

The fat Mexican dude from LOST, he got his perm cut off.

Demeur said...

I see you found my college art project from 1973, but to be honest I can't remember who he is either. I was like that back then.

Randal Graves said...

charles, I've never seen Lost, so I cannot confirm or deny your theory.

demeur, just say depends on how much I've got in my wallet.

Editor's note: this is not a quiz, dear readers, I honestly have no clue who this dude is.

Ethan said...

It's definitely not Hurley from Lost. Looks more like that guy from Home Improvement.

Tengrain said...

Graves, you swine!

You found something in a returned liberry book in Clevelandistan, and you expect US to ID it for you?

Fair enough.

I'm going for Brett Wolfe, 2002 USBC champion.

I dunno why.

Tom Harper said...

It's the Zig Zag Man. Now gimme my year's supply of OxyContin.

Randal Graves said...

ethan, forgot about that guy. Definitely a candidate.

tengrain, um, yeah, since I'm very busy earning my paycheck.

okjimm, does he look as good on a t-shirt, though.

liberality, he have some work done?

tom, holy shit, you might be right, trimmed the beard for that extra dose of incognito.

Beach Bum said...

Beats the hell out of me but he sort of reminds me of some 2nd rate actor playing minor parts of sitcoms.

sunshine said...

Looks a bit like my Uncle Vito. :)
Are you sure it isn't one of those pictures that, when turned sideways becomes something else entirely??


Lisa said...

Well, I'll be. It's Billy Mays' death mask.

Liberality said...

Alright, let me be more specific then: Fidel in HIS YOUTH???

La Belette Rouge said...

Fat Jesus?

Randal Graves said...

BB, that's essentially my take. There's something familiar about his commonality.

sunshine, tilt your head. Penis or vagina at all?

lisa, the centerpiece of the Billy Mays Memorial Musuem.

liberality, or, most likely, the mutant laboratory offspring of every guess so far.

LBR, an impossibility? Folks did a lot of walking then, plus a fish-heavy diet. Hell, there's a money-making televangelist scam just waiting to be unleashed on yokels!

Robin Williams brother? - the one who can never remember a punchline.
