You need a what?

Our company’s CEO is in the office today and there are lunches and dinners planned to keep him amused and well fed.  However I must have missed an e-mail somewhere along the line.  The office manager bounded into my office asking for my baby picture.

You want what?  A baby picture of me?  Those are all in the States and not scanned.  Why?

So it’s something to do with some activity during a dinner.  So I’m assuming we will be expected to guess the employee by their baby pic.  I got nothing.  SO, I decided to improvise.

Here’s the first one I sent to the office manager:

I think my Mother would agree that this is a pretty close approximation to any real baby pictures that do exist.  But this was denied as an acceptable submission.

So I decided to improvise some more.  I broke out Photoshop and got to work.  And ended up with this:
Improvised baby picture

I think that’s the one they are going to use.  Without the watermark of course.  I still say the monkey picture is better, but there’s just no accounting for taste on this side of the world.  Perhaps the hat won them over?

    Hahaha it’s all about the hat. I have to admit the first photo is uncannily like you. LOL

  2. They are both an eerie likeness to you.

    I like the monkey pic. All babies resemble monkies.

    That is hilarious! And also very random! I wouldn’t be able to respond to a question like that. I’d just stare at them and blink like this:

    I love both photos by the way!

    I like the monkey, it’s so cute!
    Nice PS work though haha. It was totally the hat that won them over.

  6. LOL! Those are both great.

    My old boss, for a short while, had a picture up of the “40 Year Old Virgin” for his office photo.
