It's traditional for the OP to go first.

Just saying.

It's customary for the OP of such a thread to start by providing a picture of him/herself... (Or, on preview, what Telperien said. Curse my slow composition skills!)

This is a thread I've been thinking about starting for a week or two myself, so I'll jump in: here are a bunch of photos of me, at various ages (and in chronological order*).

Now I get to sit back and look at everyone else's!



*Anal retentive? Me? Why do you ask?

As for me: an older one, something a little newer, and the most recent one I have.

silenus, I remembre seeing that picture on a different thread. I had assumed you were John Mace, then. I'm not sure if that's an insult or not.

Misnomer, I like the South Park pic. That's a new take on getting your picture drawn in cartoon form, eh?

Telpereien, I was just putting up a forum for such things! I didn't realize there was SUCH a demand for my ugly face to be smattered across the Dope. I'll get there. Consider this pictorial foreplay, dah-ling.

Bah. I HATE pictures of me.

This is from last December. Friend cut out to protect the innocent. My daughter took this a couple of months ago, and says it's an excellent example of Momface.

Ship? What's all that talk a-boat?


Yeah, yeah, yeah. My resolve is dwindling. I MAY take one tomorrow when I'm all gussied up. (Shirt and tie isn't necessarily "gussied", but it's what keeps the geriatrics all hot and bothered.)

Don't make me come over there.

I'll get this out of the way, since I know it's expected of me...(though maybe not by him)

It's always the seemingly least original types. (I experimented with unicorn horns in college but it kept lacerating the ferret.)
