Here’s part two of our attempt to find the celebrity look-alikes of our honorable members of Congress. Yup, From the Boondocks abides by the presumption that members of Congress are honorable. Unless you send us competent evidence that they are not, we will be sticking to this presumption to save our ass. Hirap na, baka ma-libel 🙂
KALINGA Congressman Lawrence Wacnang
LOOK-ALIKES: Saddam Hussein, 57%; Thomas Edison, 53%; Ferdinand de Lesseps, 52%; Takashi Sorimachi, 50%. COMMENT: Baka magalit si Congressman Wacnang dahil number one look-alike daw niya si Saddam, pero 57% lang naman. He doesn’t really look like Saddam but they do seem to have the same teasing smile/laughter. But it must be the way their cheeks curve that make them seem to look alike.
BENGUET Congressman Samuel Dangwa
LOOK-ALIKES: Kim Dae Jung, 63%; Kenzo Tange, 63%; Leon Lai, 61%; Michael Rosenbaum, 57%. COMMENT: Congressman Dangwa does look a bit like Kenzo Tange and he must also have looked like Leon Lai in his younger days. Parehong bilog na bilog ang kanilang mata eh 🙂
In Memoriam: ABRA Congressman Luis Bersamin.
LOOK-ALIKES: John Woo, 72%; Suharto, 59%; Takashi Sorimachi, 55%; Lu Xiang, 54%. COMMENT: Maybe Hollywood director John Woo might want to temporarily give up his director’s chair and become the lead actor in a movie on the life of murdered Congressman Luis Bersamin. Of course, its not gonna happen but Rep. Bersamin’s murder (in church, after a wedding, where he was a sponsor) and, more importantly, the subsequent hunt for his murderers has a great cinematic potential. Seriously, we do hope that the Congressman’s killers are apprehended and brought to justice.
UPDATE: There seems to be a problem with Myheritage.com which hosts the images of the congressmen and their look-alikes which should be appearing in this post. I am retaining this post despite the absence of the accompanying pictures with the hope that said pictures will eventually return. My apologies.
