Separated at Birth

Separated at Birth: The Atlantic’s James Hamblin and ‘Doogie Howser, M.D.’

Doogie-Howser-doogie-howser-md-3194744-1024-734Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 16.59.19A recent series from Atlantic Video by senior editor James Hamblin, MD, explores “If Our Bodies Could Talk,” including “Single-Tasking is the New Multitasking,” “Workouts to Do at Work” that we’ll never actually do, and that wine isn’t as healthy as we thought.

Unbeknownst to us, the young MD has already been everywhere. His work has been featured on or covered by MSNBC, The New York Times and POLITICO. TIME named his Twitter handle in the top 140 best Twitter feeds of 2014. And BuzzFeed referred to him as ‘the most delightful MD ever.’ We agree.

While the topics so far covered in the series already induce much anxiety, we can’t help but watch and be reminded of another MD we all know well, Doogie Howser. Read more

Separated at Birth: Jennifer Aniston and CNN’s Erin McPike

As grows Americans’ dislike of Congress, so does the resemblance between one CNN correspondent and another top Hollywood actress.

Erin McPike, meet Jennifer Aniston. Jennifer, meet Erin (As if you don’t know each other already…It’s obvious you’re sisters.).

The notion came to us one afternoon when we were flipping through the channels, watching “The Lead with Jake Tapper,” covering an important and timely current event, and a rerun of “Friends” we’ve seen at least five times.

Help us cast the DC version of “Friends!” We’re looking for Separated at Birth suggestions for Monica Geller (Courteney Cox), Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow), Joey Tribbiani (Matt LeBlanc), Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry), and Dr. Ross Geller (David Schwimmer). Send yours to fishbowlnick@gmail.com.

Separated at Birth?

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and BuzzFeed’s Jonah Peretti, both of whom were just named on The Hollywood Reporter‘s list of the 35 most powerful people in New York media. Striking, no?

Separated at Birth: Twin Sons from Different Mother (Boards)

Looks like WUSA CBS-9 and USA Today -two Gannett companies -are using the same web template. We predict the next step is WUSAToday9.com…

Separated At Birth? Jenna Lee and Lara Logan

Or maybe it’s just that all white people look the same…

Separated At Birth?

This sedate puppy and this terrifying Russian:

Separated At Birth: Christine Lagarde and Kathleen Sebelius

Anyone ever see them in the same room together…?

Hat tip to reader, Nick T. for the pics.

Separated at Birth: TheBlaze’ Eddie Scarry

Today we have a special match. It’s TheBlaze‘s illustrious Eddie Scarry and the boy that once vied to be a BuzzFeed intern. We also think he has a pinch of Ralph Macchio (“Karate Kid”) and a sprinkling of Daily Kos‘s Markos Moulitsas in him.

A Modern Day Riddle: Why is David Bass Toasting With the Prez?

photo

In a rare moment of DC bipartisanship, President Obama and a suited man who looks distinctly like Raptor executive David Bass raise a toast. The balding mustachioed white-haired gent who resembles Qorvis VP and former Washingtonian columnist and editor Chuck Conconi looks on, albeit confusedly.

Who is that toasting man? Read more

Separated at Birth: Weekly Standard’s Hayes

The Weekly Standard’s senior writer Stephen Hayes looks a hell of a lot like former Washington Redskins player Mark Schlereth. Oh what a difference five years and less facial hair make. In 2007, a reader thought he looked like then-WCP writer and now WaPo reporter Mike DeBonis.

Have a look.
