Sae Sumiyoshi cries in the arms of an amateur sumo wrestler during a baby-crying contest at Sensoji temple in Tokyo April 29, 2006. Seventy-four babies born in 2005 took part in the event, which is held to pray for the babies' health and growth. REUTERS/Toru Hanai

Al Gore 2008

Honorable Mention #1

Rodney Dill:

The relentless beat-beat-beat of the liberal 'blame-Bush' mantra was eventually to become known as the Algorithm.

Honorable Mention #2

Counter Trey:

Finally! Proof that Al Gore really does blow smoke out his ass.

Honorable Mention #3


Newly-hired consultants advised Algore to smile more for the cameras, unaware how twisted his facial features become when he says: "Cheese."

Honorable Mention #4


You want the truth? OK, here it is: Bill killed Ron Brown and I did not invent the Internet, but Madeline really can leg-press 400 pounds.

Honorable Mention #5

Zsa Zsa:

As his Kingdom of Mordor smolders through the window behind him, Sauron adopts a new, media friendly "eco" persona complete with suit and tie and Al Gore mask.

Honorable Mention #6

Bart Harmon:

Yet again, Jim's computer froze and another "fatal error" message appeared on the screen after he tried to download "ALGORE 5.0" onto his hard drive.

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at May 3, 2006 11:23 AM

Damn, I was gonna go Oliver Willis, too, but you beat me to it. I guess there's other lookalikes:

Following in the footsteps of Al Gore, former Secretary of State Colin Powell has put on a few pounds and has adopted a more "casual" dress style after leaving government service to spend more time with his grandchildren.

Sae Sumiyoshi cries after discovering the Truth about 'Baby Fat' burning off in later childhood. Young Miss Sumiyoshi had bought her Mother's assurances hook, line, and sinker until she met her older brother on break from Sumo training. Prefecture Authorities are concerned that more and more Japanese youth are over self-image conscious at too early an age. REUTERS/Toru Hanai
