I got chided on facebook for saying my grandson looks like Winston Churchill. I responded with the old joke that all babies look like Winston Churchill, which only got me in hotter water.
I will let you decide: does he look like Churchill?
Fortunately, which you cannot tell from this photo, his personality is quite the opposite of Churchill’s, who, by all testimony, was a very difficult human being.
Did Churchill look like Churchill as a baby? This is close as I could get.
I did an image search to find baby pictures of the great man, and it turned up a host of human and animal lookalikes.
What is interesting is that one of the greatest, most charismatic leaders of history had such a baby face. We now understand that the normal human brain is wired to have a strong positive emotional response to babies and the characteristics of babies. Was that all part of his charisma and power or did he have to overcome it? He was such a polished speaker, who knows what rhetorical art he crafted.
I look like a desert hermit, or like George R. R. Martin, but my bank account does not look like his. By the way, for $20,000 to go to a wolf sanctuary, Martin will write you into and give you a grisly death in the next installment of Game of Thrones.
What role does your face fit?
