Che Guevara and Michael Jackson
No, it’s not the response to a challenge to name two people you’d never think had anything in common. It’s the answer to this question:
Who tall are you?
That, in turn, is not a question from a three-year-old (akin to the canonical, “How high is up?”). No, it’s the title of a wall plaque in a fabulous Tex-Mex and seafood restaurant (somewhere) along Interstate 10.
Turns out I’m the same height as Che Guevara and Michael Jackson.
Imagine the fun the creators/perpetrators had, choosing the pairings.
The Penguin and Mother Teresa.
Madonna and Gandhi.
Ewok and Wile E. Coyote.
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bill Murray.
Heisenberg and Taylor Swift.
Darth Vader and LeBron James.
Nelson Mandela and Quentin Tarantino.
There are so many ways to find fun connections in a world that needs them badly.
