Ernest Hemingway Lookalike-Contest

Wusste ich auch noch nicht: Es gibt einen Lookalike-Contest für alte Männer, die wie Ernest „Write drunk; edit sober“ Hemingway aussehen. Hätte mein Papa auch mitmachen können, der sah auch so aus und mein Bart wird auch langsam aber sicher grau (und zwar auf die coole Reed Richards/Nick Fury-symmetrische Art, ha!) Die Fotos auf Petapixel kommen von Henry Hargreaves.

Every year, in the third week of July, over 100 silver bearded men descend upon the city of Key West, Florida. Their goal: to be declared the man who most resembles American writer Ernest Hemingway. The contest they participate in is put on by the Hemingway Look-Alike Society, and is the largest sanctioned look-alike competition in the world. […]

Starting on July 21st (Hemingway’s birthday), roughly 150 look-alikes begin engaging in 4 days of crazy competition. Events include arm wrestling, fishing, drinking, a running of the bulls, and reading Hemingway’s writings. In the end, the winner is selected by previous winners of the contest.
