Well, my beard came in mostly white when I grew it out.  Now, if the hair on the top of my head will turn, I just might enter some day.

If that doesn't pan out you can always try for a job as a mall Santa.

These guys look like they're having great fun. Good for them.

They should have an hemingway, kenny rogers, and burl ives look-a-like contest all at the same time.

They are not remembering that time she left.  Left alone.  In the rain.

But seriously, as Optikeye said above, they're having fun. Good for them.

Everyone needs a hobby.

Subby says it deserves the Floriduh tag, sure, but there's a chunk of good news in this story:

"Other look-alike entrants included celebrity chef Paula Deen's husband, Michael Groover of Savannah, Georgia."

Dude beat that racist biatch's husband in the contest. I'd call that good news, and I'd also award Wally a fried stick of butter (on a stick, naturally) as an additional prize.

If I were him I'd kill myself.

I guess it's better than winning the National Association of Marlon Brando Look-Alikes (NAMBLA) contest.

He didn't publish that manuscript...It was called..The Old Man And The Semen..

An amusing (and possibly apocryphal) Hemingway anecdote:
While Hemingway said as much as he could in as few words as possible, he often had quite a lot to say. He once sent his publisher a manuscript so thick it had to be carried on a hand truck. His publisher sent it back, saying to cut half of it out. He sent the same manuscript in again, but this time in two boxes with a note saying he didn't know which half the publisher didn't like.

I always wondered if Mr. Hemingway was a closet gay because in his life he always only did the manliest of manly activities.

Key West trivia time:

If you really want to go and drink where Hemingway did, don't go to Sloppy Joe's, you'll want to go to Captain Tony's Saloon.  This was the original Sloppy Joe's.  It also has a lot more history than Sloppy Joe's.

For what it's worth, I know two guys who do the Santa gig every year and they bring in 15-20k for less than two months of work.

They don't look like Hemingway.

Where's the head-hole? You're not a REAL Hemingway man until you blow your brains out.

Came here to say this. The word is "restaurateur," without the "n."

Maybe.  But even if he was, hunting U-boats in your own motorboat puts him right past "covering up homoerotic tendencies" tendencies territory and back at the apex of manly men...
