Last week Nikki left this most excellent comment on my Weekend Update post in reference to my likeness to the famous TV chef Alton Brown:
"you have way better hair than Alton Brown..."
...to which I replied,
"nikki - Thanks! That's the first time ANYONE has EVER said I have "way better hair" than... well, anything - including naked mole rats."
Well, at the time I thought my reply was just another clever response and left it at that - until a friend sent me this note:
"Jeff, have you ever actually SEEN a naked mole rat? You may want to retract your comparison."
Huh? Sure, I've seen naked mole rats. I mean, I have kids. Who hasn't seen this adorable little sidekick on Kim Possible (one of the best toons ever btw).
I know - they don't really look like that. This is just a cute cartoon rendering. Naked mole rats are actually fairly unattractive hairless little rodents that look like this:
Get it? Ha! He doesn't have good hair. Or ANY hair! Hahahahahaha. And that's the reason I thought my reply to Nikki's comment was so clever. UNTIL...
I stumbled on the following picture by mistake. However, I don't recommend you click on it because it's very disturbing. Besides, your computer's filters probably won't allow it anyway.

Definitely not any other body part.
