Paul Revere

I know this is going to seem quite random; and frankly, it is.

Have you ever noticed how much the portrait of Paul Revere (by John Singleton Copley c. 1768-1770) looks like a cross between contemporary actor/heavy metal comedian Jack Black and the Monkees' Micky Dolenz?

Some of my Photoshop-skilled friends should draw something involving the three playing in a band a la "every-cartoon-from-the-60s-and-early-70s". You know, one has the wonky guitar, the other on drums, and one ..boards. Maybe throw in Keanu Reeves with a tambourine. Come to think of it, this might also resemble the Monkees a bit. Or a Monkees' bit. Or bit a monkey.

Oh...or maybe they should all be riding through colonial Boston on horses.

Yeah, that'd be great.

Wow! Paul Revere really DOES look like Jack Black and Monkee Mikey.
