The Glee club

Unless you are serving an unspecified term in Guantanamo Bay for an unspecified “crime” and therefore haven’t seen the light of day or a television in the last 3 years or so, you’re well aware of Cornell University alum Jane Lynch and her super-ultra-megahit Glee.

Of course, before her turn on the tube as Sue Sylvester, you’ve seen her in films such as The 40 Year Old Virgin and Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.  Shut up, I like those two.  Anyway, what did this fictional high school cheerleading coach look like when she was in high school?

Lt Dan, that hair is not regulation

Gary Sinise has starred in one of America’s most loved movies (Forrest Gump) and more recently has added to the CSI family of snarky cops shows, as well as being the voice of the excellent documentary WWII in HD.

Please don’t hurt me, Santa

It’s a time-honored tradition: Forcing young children to sit in a strange guy’s lap.

Cozy Christmas custom or not, I know that this little girl was less than pleased back in the mid-70s when her mom and grandmother wanted her to spend some quality time with an obvious Santa imposter (who could, in fact, have been a total pedophile whose primary qualification for this particular job was the ability to wear a red and white costume).

Despite once being thisclose to the the creepy Claus, fortunately, she recovered from her experience. In fact, this kid grew up to create a website featuring funny and funky photos, and would occasionally talk about herself in the third person.

And now during every Christmas season, she watches The Killers’ Don’t Shoot Me Santa video, and steers well clear of the malls.
