Friday Night Advice: Beware of Men In Bunny Suits

You know, it's not often we get to bestow upon you words of pure wisdom.  Sure, we provide detailed, timely news, product and technology analysis but really, we're not in the business of covering your backside.  That's what Moms are for or your personal Wingman or Wingwoman, as the case may be.  That said, we'll give you a bit of advice for this fine Friday... If you see a dude dressed up like this and looking seriously pleased about it, coming your way, we'd suggest you run (don't walk) the other way.  Let's see if your instincts are in proper attenuation tonight. Can you tell us, who is the MAN in the middle of this fab tour shot?


They're like Gangstas but geekier... Who's the man in the middle with his hands on the prize baby?!

Let's zoom in... The rest of this crowd is far too rambunctious for their ground straps.  I mean, someone is going to get hurt if they gave that wafer to the wrong guy (it's got to be worth a few pesos)... but who could it be?



Wait just a dog-gone minute... We recognize that suave and debonair look... That "get-back" stare...  that "he must be stopped!" sense of urgency.  We know who it is and we're not giving him up.  He's one of us... You tell us.  We're not sayin'...  Nope, our lips are sealed.

Not sure who it is but he looks pretty 'dope' in that suit! Are you sure that mask will keep the germs from getting out or are they 'conducting' an experiment? It looks 'wafer' thin! How did he 'deposit' himself in that clean room? I'm not sure how much he is 'etching' to be in there he looks only 'semi' excited!

 

PS - My guess is Mat

Hmm. Dave's a bit too fair-haired to be the subject (those are some serious eyebrows happenin'). Also, he said "nope," actually he said it twice, which would also seem to rule out Marco Chiappetta... but I pasted his (Marco's) avatar onto the photo and came up pretty close.

Let's see who's left. I added to the names we know from the by-lines by looking at the staff bios page for this list:

  • Daniel Begun. "Dog-gone" was mentioned in the article, and his bio mentions his "dog-walking earnings."
  • Michael Santo. A possibility; the nose looks similar, though he obviously had some eyebrow work done for the avatar photo.
  • Jennifer Johnson, Amy Vernon. Nope, the Mystery Man was identified as a "man."
  • Rob Maloney. Nope, eyebrows are far too narrow.
  • Michael Lin. A definite maybe: the "playing guitar" reference could lend meaning to "our lips are sealed" and "get back" attitude.
  • Gregory Sullivan. Probably not; there'd be more references to his comedy routines and John Madden football.
  • Shawn Oliver. No biography either on the About page or his user page.
  • Joel Hruska. Ditto.
  • Shane Unrein. Has something of an About page bio, but nothing stuck out. His last post was January 8... maybe he's been traveling to fabrication centers?

The last three either didn't have anything in their profiles that stood out... or didn't have profiles. I took a look at the HTML source of the article (something I learned to do while playing The Matrix Online; an occasional clue was buried in the source of the mundane newspaper articles) but no.

 

So I'm going with Michael Lin, who I have to admit an unfamiliarity with, but if you want me to really start investigating these mugs it'll cost you. I get $200 a day, plus expenses (same as Jim Rockford).

The image in the article looks like a photoshop job lol... But that face is almost definitely Mat

The zebra girl's face paint reminds me of that mug shot picture of a guy who had been huffing gold spray paint.

What's my prize? lol The origin PC? :-D lol

I thought the pic of him with the FAB looked a little... FABricated heh. Just cuz of the colors around the mask seem to over lap :-P

That wafer (which looks to have chips on it) is probably worth over 100 times the origin PC :P

And I assure you, that picture with Mat and the CES "Wildlife" is NOT a photoshop job. ;)

As before stated I would have liked to be there just to see the cat print girl Mark got almost as lucky as getting a whole circle of cpu's and of course a cool Halloween (or around town) costume.

Mat? Mat who what huh? Was there a Mat in that photo? I'm going to have to stare at it a lot longer to see if I can find him. I'll get back to you. (I just want to know who got to spray-paint those costumes on.)

Yup Mat
