Celebrity Mugshots Crack Me Up

 I have a secret. One of my guilty pleasures is looking at mugshots of celebrities. 

Just by chance, I came across these fake mugshots.  I think I needed some humor today.  Obama, mugged!
 Whoever put these together is brilliant.
 This one of George W. looks real to me! I'm just saying. 


 The lovable Tom Hanks.

This one of Jane Fonda is real.

 The Queen of England has to be my favorite. Back in 1993, I was living in England for a short time and had the opportunity to see The Queen! Yes, I still have to pinch myself. Me, a Yank, a commoner, got to see the Queen! We were 2 feet from one another. I had one of those old video cameras on my shoulder (the huge box that had an actual VHS tape in it and a sausage microphone sticking out the front). She was "christening" a new elder care home north of London and walked past all her adoring public lining the street.  I must have looked like a news reporter to her because she came close and smiled. I began hyperventilating and it's hilarious to listen to me on the tape say, "Oh my goodness, it's the Queen! It's the Queen"!
Which one is your favorite?

I adore the Queen, too. She's one of my favorite royals. I adore her.

I love these--I would have to say that Barbie is my favorite--I was wondering why I couldn't find my old Barbie doll!

OH MY GOODNESS, what a charming blog! Dearest, I am amazed at how much we DO HAVE IN COMMON! I moved from L.A. to Massachusetts to go to school, then 14 years ago moved here to the Twin Cities. IT IS WONDERFUL. However, it is like PLUTO in terms of the weather!

I would love to correspond with you and alay any concerns about moving here. Are you moving the Minneapolis/St. Paul? NO FEARS...awesome cities, lots to do, great Christian communities. Email me:

Hi Rebecca,
George dubbleyer is my favourite, though Liz runs a close second. I am sorry to say I absolutely l o a t h e Dr Mr Bush and have never forgiven him for driagging us (The UK) into war but then our then government was so keen to go to war too. Me and the Frog wrote a letter of protest to 10 Downing Street - much good it did us!
Anyway happy easter, I hope your family are settling in well. PS did you eventually get the purple passion mobile you won in my OWOH post ??? I hope so, and I hope you like it.
