i really dig kirk's shoes and socks combo in that photo.

feel free to leave the names of those that i forgot/should consider for next year in the comments section. i feel like i could certainly branch out more in the areas of elderly world leaders, shady rappers, hunted terrorists, accidental ODs and cancer.

what about Pervez Musharaff? Prince Henry "Harry" of Wales? Studs Terkel would have been a sure-thing . . . They are all on my "unofficial" list.
