WORD OF THE DAY! 1/30/12


doppelganger [dop-uhl-gang-er]
noun
1. a ghostly double or counterpart of a person.
2. a copy or clone of an object, animal, or person.
3. someone who copies the appearance and/or mannerisms of another person; a copycat.

EX. I have several theories about the image above of the Mythbusters;

First of all, this is an expression of the false belief that every little person is a miniaturized copy of a real celebrity, politician, or Water Polo coach. These little doppelgangers try to avoid the larger versions of themselves to keep from getting absorbed into the mass of the larger entity.

Then, we've got the parallel-earth theory that theorizes that there is an infinite number of parallel universes. Thus, the Mythbusters must have made a subspace ship to travel to a universe where all humans are midgets. Presumably, they use it to bully their smaller selves into doing their chores and taking candid photos with them.

Or perhaps Jamie's plans to clone the two of them has finally come to fruition and soon an army of Mythbusting badasses will be running around making soda machines that can shoot cans at you, shark proof boats, and Coca-Cola Mentos bombs that can covertly take out the Moleman C.H.U.D. that threaten the upper biosphere.

Perhaps, this is a side-by-side comparison of the time that Adam and Jamie were cursed by the same witch that turned a younger Jamie into a walrus, only to be saved by an Eskimo princess, after he proved her crystal ball was made of glass and not the crystallized heart of a Lava Wyrm.

Or maybe its a couple of kids wearing masks...

The world may never know.
