Yearbook Yourself

Yearbook Yourself. Have you ever thumbed through an old yearbook and wondered what you'd look like if you were part of that class? Wonder no more! Try on a 50s beehive hairdo, become a 60s flower child or prepare to join the cast of "That 70s Show".

"Yearbook" is a verb?
Lemme Google that, mister.

High-larious. The app doesn't match up one's face with the background in all of the pictures very well (due to many of the template photos having poses where the person's head is turned slightly), but I laughed out loud several times seeing my goofy mug coming from a Buddy Holly cut or 70s feather fest.

Dude, I am sooooo far ahead of the curve on this one. This is my actual yearbook photo, from 1989.
(after scanning, I added the Seth Poppel Yearbook Archive for further comic effect)

This showed up on flickr's "everyone's uploads" the other day, and I thought it was about the funniest thing I ever saw. I didn't do it, but ga dam.

I did NOT look like that in the 80's.

I had some taste.

Ah to be young and have my real youth be not out of style yet.

There's a manbabies crossover waiting to happen, here.

For example.

Goddamn it, the 1970s hairstyles proved it to me. They're all right. I do look like my mom.

Cobaltnine, it was the 1960's pictures that did that for me.

But I am proud to say that I never actually did my hair the way they have in the 1980's pics when I was alive during the actual 1980's.

That's future-CEO material you've got there, DB.

DB, your son and mine ought to get together and talk shop.
