No, I thought--something else...

While watching Anastasio speak during one of his "all-hands" meetings, I kept trying to figure out WHO or WHAT he resembled. Mxxxxx said, "He looks kind of like a teddy bear..."
No, I thought--something else...Then, it came to me! An EWOK! Compare the EWOK's picture next to one of Anastasio--see the resemblence?

Comments:
I would agree with the NNSA folks who would no doubt say that these two entities should be deemed "substantially equivalent". Hmmmm...and since when are we sharing nuclear weapons design information with the EWOKS???
 
Or is it Mister Potato Head?

A pretty juvenile attempt at humor, I would have to say. Not worthy of the blog.
 
Oh, come on David, it's hilarious! Don't be such a stick-in-the-mud.
Loosen up a little and learn how to walk on the "wild side". What
would Jesus do (WWJD) if he saw this picture? He'd probably laugh
his ass off. As would both Mike and his wife. In fact, if Mike's
savvy, he should try to work these pictures into one of his future
All-Hands meetings to help loosen up the crowd. People tend to
admire a guy who can handle a little self-deprecating humor, and
God knows we could all use a few laughs right about now.
 
I think we are on to something, because I was watching Scott Gibbs talk the other day and was struck by his substantial equivalence to Luke Skywalker.
 
David,

So far, sentiment on the humor/appropriateness of this post is running about 50 to 1 against your opinion (but only because I have received 51 pieces of feedback on it). In fact, I have received a request to extend this theme as follows:

Doug,

This is really cute. I would like to challenge these creative bloggers to identify the
"substantial equivalent" of Nanos.

Apparently, all that feedback did not rise to the level of people actually posting their thoughts???
 
A surprising number of people seem to prefer to email their feedback directly to me, rather than submitting comments. Since I don't have the time to add their feedback as a comment to the appropriate blog posting, the information flow usually ends at that point.

The EWOK is cuter.
 
"This is really cute. I would like to challenge these creative bloggers to identify the

I think That the only possible substantial equivalent of Nanos would be Mr Ed's backside.
 
I heard he was called Frodo during the LANS bidding wars.

All the "Key Personnel" were nick-named after characters in the Lord of the Rings.

I wonder who Sauron was?

Nanos was probably an orc...he probably thought he was Gandalf.
 
"I think That the only possible substantial equivalent of Nanos would be Mr Ed's backside."

I think this is a huge insult to Mr. Ed, whose south-end is much more attractive than the north-end of our former dictator oops, I mean director.
 
A caricature of Admiral Butthead.
I have get a mental image of this!
