Man, I Love Being a Nostril

Have you ever been told that you look like a celebrity? I have. Believe it or not, faithful readers, I've been told that I look like Christopher Lambert, Ralph Macchio, Zach Braff and even John Malkovich. While 64% of those are flattering, it's always a little odd to be told that you look like someone else.

Now let's take it one step deeper/weirder. What if I told you that a part of your body looked like a celebrity? Remember these guys?

If you're a child of the 80s or 90s, you probably do, but for those of you born after 1996 let me introduce the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. These guys were the coolest thing since sliced pizza back in the day. Now, does that make it any more flattering when I tell you that you look like one of these heroes in a half shell? Well, not your entire face - just your nose. In fact, based on a website that I recently found, I'd venture to say that everyone's nose has a little bit of Turtle Power.

Check it out:

Adrian's nose is especially good at sniffing out pizza.

Splinter may have been more appropriate, but this works.

Raphael and The Hulk: Distant cousins?

Since this one has no color, do you see John Krasinski as more of a Leonardo or a Donatello?

Michelangelo looks very surprised to be on this face.

Why was Raphael the only turtle with a New York accent?

Get it?

This website, of course, spawned real-life imitations.

Check it! Raphael has chest hair!

Boom! TMNT now appeals to all ages!

If you're up for more bodacious beaks, head on over to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Noses website where, site creator, Simon Fletcher obviously has too much time on his hands.

What? And reveal my secret identity? Never! :)

Funny stuff.
Lisa Turtle, got it!
I don't know why Raf had a NY accent at all. Or why Mikey talked like he was from SoCal. They were turtles who were taught English by Splinter. Shouldn't they all talk like they are from Chinatown?

An excellent point, Shelly Brown! Their accents are all over the place!
