For the record, I'm both taller and faster than Sean Astin

For all who may still be a little confused about yesterday's riddle, the answer is equal to how many fingers I am holding up in the picture at right. Clues may also be gleaned from the fact that that is not a football helmet on my head nor is my triumphant pose being struck on the 50-yard line.

If you still don't know which was the true story of my journey to Knoxville, you are beyond help and I encourage you to never ever have children. And if you already have children, please murder them.

I'm serious.

The author of Bacon soup says that you actually kidnapped Courtney ...

sid- Don't read that crap.

Sean Astin, in my humble opinion, was the best hobbit. Just wanted to get that out there.

This made me laugh.

Noelle said...

Sean Astin was robbed of the Academy Award, just like Ben Foster. Also, Mickey, you should get one just for fun.

For the record, I always knew it was the first story. Maybe you can get Billy Boyd to star as you when they make a movie of it.

Who WOULD play Mickey in a movie??? By looks alone, I would say Paul Bettany (look him up).

What, you're not three feet tall like Samwise Gamgee? I don't believe that for a second. Do you have hairier feet than him?

Jacob said...

But you could never be as adorable as Rudy.

Courtney said...

Meaghan, in order to look like Paul Bettany, Mickey would have to be an albino. Give my man a little pigmentation credit.

Mickey said...

allie- He was absolutely born for that role.

em- That's all I want.

noelle- I completely agree about Misters Astin and Foster. Are you saying I should get an Oscar too? That doesn't even make sense. And not to take anything away from Billy Boyd, but I was hoping we could shoot for someone more ruggedly handsome. He looks kind of dainty.

meaghan- I can sort of see that.

npw- While my hair certainly seems to be fleeing my head, it hasn't yet migrated to my feet. I'm 5'11" (damn that last unreachable inch).

jacob- I'm afraid you're right.

Mickey said...

And Courtney's right, as well.
