Just call me Amanda Bynes.

I love when people brag about how much they look like a certain celebrity. Seriously, it's my favorite. The only thing that could make the comparison better is if they add something about how everyone mentions how much they look like the said celebrity, or if it's a really obscure celebrity.

Example 1: "Yeah, people tell me I look like Angelina Jolie all the time. I mean my friends tell me all the time, and once at Smith's, a fan asked for my autograph. No lie."

Example 2:

Gloater-"So, the weirdest thing happened, this girl came up to me and asked for my autograph. She thought I was Amber Brkich."

Innocent Listener- "Who is that?"

Gloater- "You know, that girl from season 4 of Survivor."

Innocent Listener- "There were four seasons of Survivor?"

The best part about this is that the "gloaters" never, ever, look like a celebrity. In fact, they look considerably worse. It's all I can do to keep from snorting everytime I hear someone tell me they've been compared to Angelina Jolie, Black Lively, Reese Witherspoon, or basically just anyone famous. I also think that people that mean to give flattering compliments by throwing in a celebrity reference are doing the world a real disservice.

Ps- People tell me I look like Amanda Bynes like, all the time. Seriously. I can't even go downtown without being mobbed by fans...

P.S., People really do tell me that I look like Tyra Banks. All the time. Almost on a daily basis.

ha ha. Jana, I have always thought you and Tyra looked alike. When, I was younger I got that I looked like Alanis Morrissette and Christina Aguilara, random, and yuck! Even if I do, don't tell me that please!

Oh my stars, people tell me I look like Joan Rivers all the time.

And then I cut myself some more.

p.s. OK, I'm totally kidding. I'm just 34, and Joan Rivers is like...what...109? And you DO favor Amanda Bynes. I looooove her.
