Nickname: Tom Hanks Identical traits: Curly hair, morally unquestionable, usually long suffering
Why? My made Lud and Tom Hanks might as well be brothers from another mother. A mother that had twins about forty years apart that is... They have exactly the same faces and level of respect from myself.
Nickname: Hendrix Identical traits: Scruffy hair, Class A drugs
Why? One day, my mate Lud put on a party hat; the kind you get out of Christmas crackers. The resemblance to Jimi Hendrix wearing a bandanna was instantly what jumped to the forefront of my mind and the nickname was born. I even ran this one by him, and he appreciated it. That's probably why it didn't catch on.
Nickname: Dylan Identical traits: Scruffy hair, always miserable, weedy, thorn in the side of everyone
Why? The longer my mate Lud grows his hair, the wilder it gets, almost always resulting in something that resembles Dylan in this picture. They're both always whinging about some injustice or another as well.
Nickname: That geezer from The Strokes Identical traits: Scenester, Scruffy curly hair
Why? I never bothered to learn the actual name of the guy I was referring to with this short lived insult, but it works by replacing The Strokes with any currently trendy indie band. They all seem to love rocking the afro.
