So, I was watching Have Gun Will Travel (or HGWT, as the kids like to call it) on Netflix last night, and there was an episode called "Last Laugh" which featured a simple-minded character named Jud. Jud was portrayed by an actor named Peter Whitney, who apparently did a lot of character work in '50s and '60s TV shows, especially westerns. I bring this up because...well, look at this image of Whitney from another role: 
 
 

 What?
 What?
Now consider this picture I found on Google from an episode of Beverly Hills he appeared on: 
 

      
 Anime is for Jerks!
 Anime is for Jerks!
  
If I was more tech savvy, I'd screencap some of the images of Whitney as the hapless Jud from that HGWT episode, because they look just like Jeff doing his famous "Dumb Guy" impersonation.  
 
Here's another Whitney image just for kicks: 
 
That's the WORST! 
That's the WORST!

Give it a couple of year and this blog will be oddly prescient.

I can kinda see it in the first picture. The other two look nothing like Jeff.

I love how in every "this person looks like X staff member" thread, everyone's immediately like "Nope, looks nothing like him." I see it though.

Well Jeff is obviously a time traveler. Everyone knows that.

If you want to look like Jeff, get some prominent eyebrows, bug your eyes out and put on a screwface.

Yep, that's typically the trend. There are some where it actually DOESN'T look like the person in question, but even when it does (in this case), people are always like "NO WAY, DEWD". Maybe it's because they don't wanna offend Jeff or something? I don't get it.
