Midnight Al

Posted: July 14, 2008 in Laughter

My friend, Shannon, says I look like Peter Garrett from Midnight Oil, and with deepest apologies to Mr. Garrett, I agree. Garrett is now in business as an Australian politician (check him out HERE for what he’s up to as well as to marvel at the uncanny resemblance).

Looking like him is one thing. Imagine my surprise when I learned that I dance like him as well! This was harder to note because I have no rhythm and absolutely never dance, but there was this one time when I sat on a sacred mound of Mississippi fire ants, and when they convened a mass revival in my drawers, I danced the dance of Peter Garrett.

Check out Midnight Oil’s special performance of “Beds Are Burning” from the 2000 Olympics in Sydney HERE for proof positive. You’ll especially get a good dose of Peter’s dancing (as well as mine) around the 3:50 mark.

I’ve been bald for over a year now, but here in Arkansas it seems that no one really knew this little factoid. I have spent much of my trip talking about my lack of hair!
