125 Hemingways Enter. Only 1 Hemingway Survives.
From the land of strange:
A couple of weeks ago, Tampa, Florida hosted the 33rd annual Sloppy Joe’s “Papa Hemingway Look-Alike Contest.” Stephen Terry, 56, who’s a software developer, won the contest and, holy smokes, he looks just like Papa.
You can see his photo over at the Tampa Bay Times.
Terry defeated 124 other Hemingway wanna-be’s, including (and this is the most random fact about all of this) Paula Deen’s husband, Michael Groover. Insert your favorite Paula Deen joke here.
Groover was actually a finalist for the Sloppy Joe’s Hemingway Look-Alike crown.
I got to say:
These are some good-looking old guys. I’ve always wanted to have a Sean Connery/Ernest Hemingway vibe when I get older, sans the alcohol addiction. Guess I’ll need a fake beard. Can’t grow one now, so I definitely won’t be able to grow a white beard in 20 years. Beard implants?

Random Question: What famous author do you look like? I might have a slight resemblance to Jack Kerouac, but that’s probably just wishful thinking.
