I Live In Infamy
Last year I wrote a post about Lizzie Borden. In my blog idea notebook, I had written, “Lizzie Borden Mugshot” – but then I couldn’t remember what I meant.
I still don’t remember.
But it has paid off for me anyway.
Because when you search under Google Images for “Lizzie Borden Mugshot” – you see my drawing on the very first line!
I recognize that I have risen in Click-dom because there’s a very finite (meaning miniscule) number of people who google “Lizzie Borden Mugshot.”
But … nevertheless.
I also recognize that my drawing bears very little resemblance to the real Lizzie Borden.
This is totally irrelevant, but in my Google-searches, I did happen upon a face that did remind me of Lizzie’s:
I don’t mean to smear Amanda Knox. I personally believe that she is almost certainly innocent, whereas I also believe that Lizzie Borden was almost certainly guilty. But am I nuts, or is there a resemblance?
My drawing is only half my fame.
Because when you search Google Images for “Lizzie Borden Mugshot” you get something else.
On the THIRD LINE – there it is:
Yes, ME! Right in the middle of all the Lizzie Borden pictures.
Me and Lizzie!
Should I be honored?
(PS – my photo on Google Images doesn’t link to anything anymore. But even so, I think you can move me up by clicking on it anyway. I’m going for the TOP LINE!)
