Signing autographs at the local Wal-Mart

Regular readers are all too familiar with my late night Wal-Mart adventures. I’ve cut back on these trips for several reasons, not the least of which is the traffic volume at the Bryan, Texas Wal-Mart Supercenter is roughly twice that of the Dickson City, Pennsylvania store. Tonight was no exception as I arrived to a chaotic, packed scene at about 10:00 pm. As I was picking through the apples, I noticed that the produce guy (and I’ll save the commentary on a 60-year old produce guy working at 10pm on Saturday night for another day) kept looking at me. I assumed I was either in his way or he thought I was going to jack some apples. When we finally locked eyes, he stared at me for a couple of seconds and then laughed and said, "Oh jeez man, I thought zhou was the guy from The Weakest Link."

Strangely, I’d heard that one before. A couple of years ago, some students at BBC told me that I looked just like the host of the game show, The Weakest Link. At that time I was only familiar with the dour British woman who hosted the primetime version of the show several years ago. They told me there was now a syndicated daytime version hosted by, well, by me. It was a few weeks before I saw the guy, and I forgot about it pretty quickly. I’m now on the other side of the US, and the graveyard shift produce guy at Wal-Mart says the same thing. Strange. Tell me what you think…

  1. Wow, how you’ve changed from the powerless icon of the debate groupies you were in high school. OOOPS…I’ve seemed to have missed the point; but what can you expect?

  2. this really sucks, because I was going to use that joke on my next post.
    Well DUH you look EXACTLY like that guy.
