Case Of Mistaken Identity

To the Councillor from Croxley Green in Hertfordshire who stood behind me last night in the "Best Turkish Kebab" shop in Stoke Newington Road, tapped me on the shoulder and said "you're that Chris Evans, innit?", a handy recognition guide:

Chris Evans is a 25-year-old American actor born in Sudbury Massachusetts to a stage performing family, is from an Irish and Italian family and is a Catholic by belief and by descent. In 2006 he was voted third Hottest Body of the Year" on, behind Daniel Craig and Eric Dane. His artistic works of fantasy include "The Perfect Score" and "Opposite Sex".

I am a 35-year-old British spin doctor born in Gravesend Kent to a farming family, am from an English, Scottish and Welsh family and am an agnostic by belief and a Quaker by descent. I am five-foot-six (I long for another half-inch and so does Linda), fat, show the signs of having imbibed too much claret and am most unlikely ever to be voted "hot body" by any gay website (not that I'd mind, though). My artistic works of fantasy include Dobbo's London Mayoral campaign programme, several letters to the Guardian and an application for nomination as Labour candidate for Walthamstow.

However, the similarity has been noted both by "another blog" and many white van drivers over the years, so it's an easy mistake to make.

I don't fancy the skinny bloke on the left but the gay actor on the right is a bit of a love-handled hunk alright!

Hi Luke, I never knew you were in the army with the "resigned" Tory "homeland security spokesman".

From the Guardian:
"But that's the way it is in the army. If someone is slow on the assault course, you'd get people shouting 'come on you fat bastard, come on you ginger bastard,...",,2029424,00.html
