YIKES!

I vote 'no mullet'... though that came later, for sure.

HAHAHA! Go Judi! Dave shouldn't leave you alone with the blog and then bait you like that. When will he learn?

Hey! Dave's wearing my glasses. Or at least the glasses I wore in the 4th grade.

*waits for Dave to blog judi's high school photo*

Mullethead Ted

By Rockchild Habte-Cornbred

Mullet is a new word in my vocabulary
Since Dave shown us Ted, who looks like a Canary

A second look, Ted is not like a bird
More like Captain hook, but my big brother says "Nerd!"

A mullet Ted has, and online his pic sits
It's way out of style, so we photoshopped it

McTed, Tedbert, Ted ready for church
These pics got to Ted, so he's on the lurch

Do I have a Mullet, Ted keeps asking aroun
They tell him no, when they think he's a clown

Forever his nickname is Ted Mullethead
Everyone will find out, Ted might wish he was dead

This poem is in memory of my hamster Duckie, who my Uncle Cledus ate!

Okay, so Dave was the model for "Pinto" in Animal House. What's so wrong with that? And the kid in "Rushomre". And, oh, nevermind...

Lairbo, you nailed it "Rushmore" all the way (i knew what you meant).

I think my grandmother has a pair of glasses like those...

TeeHee.

At least he's not in a blue shirt. Judging by the collar, I think it's a white shirt. Wonder if the buttons were blue? Or if there was a large blue ink stain on the pocket at least.
We could so turn that hair into a mullet. If we weren't at work. Working. Yeah. And if we were cruel evil type people.

No, no, no. That's Ernie on the old My Three Sons show.

EVERYBODY had those glasses. all that may be missing is the pen protector....

Those are definitely "birth-control" glasses....

Did someone say Buddy Holly?

Does anybody else think that he looks a little like the lead singer in Weezer?

BTW queensbee, it is called a POCKET protector, not a pen protector.

That's very cool, Dave.

We finally have proof that you're not an alien life form carried to this planet at the start of your career from some far away constellation, like Humorea Boogaris or something.

Do I detect a bit of Donald Trump comb-over in Dave's hairstyle? Or did Dave just get a "swirly" from the guys on the football team?

BTW queensbee, it is called a POCKET protector, not a pen protector.

Zaphod -- You're right. I see the Ernieness. But my eyes keep moving from this picture to the shots in the blog header, and -- I dunno. Did something change at the mitochondrial level at Haverford or are my eyes worse than I thought?

sorry about the double post, my computer didn't load as fast as my trigger finger could fire twice.

Is it me, or does he look like he could literally die of boredom right then?

Searching the photo for some small indication of the greatness to come....

I demand a recall of this blog thread, and furthermore demand that this thread be reissued with a more flattering picture of Dave to all the members of the blog.

I'm with Zaphod. Definitely Ernie.

OK, I'm not actually 'with' Zaphod (NTTAWWT). I'm just agreeing with him.

Definitely Ernie; zaphod nailed it.

And no mullet or blue shirt. But man, the hair, the glasses, the horror!

Ernie!...Thats what was tryna' get through the fog.
n i'm thinkin' the vacant gaze and chubber cheek suggests a recent trip to the dentist.

Dave,

Do you remember what you were thinking when they took that picture?

I remember what I was thinking. I was thinking how cute I must look holding that giant teddy bear and wearing a green fedora.

...still searching...

jamester, i don't think your going to find what your looking for. sorry

jamester...snork

Egads Judi! You looked like a boy. Ouch.

Say, now thats a good looking kid. Ibet he has a promising futere ahead of him!

judi,

will you please have a "thought balloon" contest with this photo?

that's ok BD & co ... i didnt know - i only had geeeeeky glasses. i missed the rest of the ensemble.

Polly Pi - did you wear your green fedora "fer Dora"? Warner Bros. cartoon from 1935

C'mon, Dave is the classic case of the Ugly Duckling. He's very cute now!

Dave,

That's hot.

Pure sex.

Wait a minute, I think maybe...
Nope, guess not. Still looking...

What we need now is a picture of slightly older Dave, when he lived in Pa, still had glasses and had a moustache as well! truly a man of many faces (but still not the guy to knock anybody else's hairdo)

Wally (God is my barber) B

Poster boy for Geeks 'R Us

rar!
(sound of tiger roar)

you sexy journalism stud, you.

Attention:
I have no idea who this person who SAYS he is my brother is. I know for a fact I have only two UGLY sisters. I disown you, whoever you are. You need to cease and desist from using my name, likeness, or a bad facimily of my biting sarcasm. If you do not, I will seek reparations in Internet Court. I will pursue, and receive from YOU, the sum of 1 billion internet dollars (to be redeemed at one of three online casinos). I realize this seems harsh, but I WILL have justice. Also, my name will now be "jaws" as I can only post intermitantly for fear of my job. I will sweep in and out when you least expect it and destroy Ted Habte-Mullet all over again. That is all. ("b&d's brother" is a freak! Avoid him like the plague!)

Do you remember what you were thinking when they took that picture?

Polly, I bet he was thinking "I hope they don't stuff my head in the toilet again. My mom will kill me if I ruin another suit."

Props to Dave for keeping the same hairdo. I guess they had Flowbees back in the 40's.

Chaz

Before 1964, that picture was kinda normal. all the guys looked like that. except for the 'hoodlums' in leather jackets, who Jeff quite rightly notes were doing swirlies with guys who had glasses like dave's.
after 1964, only narcs wore those kind of glasses.
[i have a buspass on the geezer bus]

No, see, the sad thing is those glasses are considered cool and stylish now (again, whatever). I seriously saw some guy walking around in some that could pass for my dad's old pair (reinforced steel frames painted black! Soooo stylish!), and he had just bought them! Scary.

Man, I'm his son's age and I have to say Dave is pretty hot, as a teenager. Seriously.
All he needs is a iPod, and he looks like everyone else my age here is Seattle. He'd get a ton of dates now.

That's Touche Turtle.

No, technically, it is a pen protector. It protects all your pens from getting starch from your shirt pocket into the retraction mechanism, and thereby prolonging the usability of said pens.

(Sure do hope this doesn't turn into a quasi-double post ...)

jamester!

I found it! I found it! (You gotta know where to look!)

497th pixel from the left side, 129th row from the bottom ... that's it!

U.O. - if my tilt my head to the left and squint, I think I can make something out!

No, wait, it's just a smudge...

Still looking (counting pixels)...

Definetly Ernie.

Fun Fact for the geezer bus crowd....

Have you seen that commercial for that bladder incontinence pill ("Gotta go, gotta go right now...")(sorry for the earworm) with the couple in the row boat? Of course you have. Take a look at the guy in the boat. Guess who that, just past middle aged, guy is. Yep. It's Ernie! (Who, in real life, suffers from the unfortunate name Stanley Livingston.)

It worries me that I know all this.

Would I be less of a geezer if I admit that I am also a Weezer fan?

To expand on Chaz's comment, additional props to Dave for keeping the hair behind the do.

Oooh weeee oooh Dave looks just like Buddy Holly....

Am I the onyl one who finds Dave in his dorkiness attractive?


Or is that just a dumb question?

i thought it was pen protector. girls of course, didnt use them. we had gigantic purses with pens, and hairbrushes, and stupid notes from our friends and all kinds of stuff. wait. that's my purse now.
and a dork at 17 doesnt make you a dork at 50 whatever. when you look at that picture, you know what era it comes from....

Just a question...is Dave's picture one of those on one of the Classmates.com banner...I'd SWEAR I've seen it there!

If it takes over 25 minutes for a comment to post, mayhaps you should press the "stop" button.

First of all, "Jaws", you are one of three BOYS.
Second, YOU have those glasses.
And third, shutup!

I had a crush on Ernie. His picture was even in one of those Teen Magazines. Not that I cut it out and put it on my wall, or anything. I mean, well, okay, I did.

And Fourth, you are the only one who is ugly. you are so nasty looking, that you only wish you could be called ugly. Now that I think about it, I did you a service by calling you that.

My apologies for the multi-post...something screwy's going on here!

Huh ... if I didn't know better, I would swear that was my husband's high school yearbook picture. And he graduated from high school in 1993. So, relatively speaking, Dave doesn't look quite as dorky as one might think.

And at least Dave still appears to have all his hair. Maybe having the miniature-Marine haircut as a young boy helped, in the long run.

Memo from the Department of Redundancy Department:

RE: Double posting

Don't forget to take your ADD medication in the AM as prescribed.

That is all.

Thanks Chaz, I knew I forgot something.
