Herbie's Look-alikes (and Dislikes)

Related:

People from both sides of Herbie's family look like him, including his father and grandfather. Random people throughout history bear an uncanny resemblance. Some look-alikes look good to Herbie, but some are ugly to him.

Another category with look-alikes is Herbie as a baby, where one might expect baby Herbie to look like Herbie, but perhaps not as much as he does, glasses and all.

Index terms: family resemblance, identical twin, like father like son, chip off the old block, doppelganger, Richard E. Hughes, Ogden Whitney
