El Presidente

Supposedly our beloved VUWSA president looks similar to a “young Fidel Castro”, I however beleive that there are many more people that are far better likenessess.

1) Captain Haddock/Brutus (from Popeye)
Joel recently purchased a new hat. Obviously the structural integrity of his helmet has deteriorated. His new hat is a seaman‘s hat. Thus making this number one in the list of Joel Cosgrove look alikes

2) Jack Passion
Recently crowned “best beard in the world”. This guy is pretty similar to Joel, but with more personality.

3) Harry from Harry and the Hendersons
The most loveable domesticated sasquatch on TV. I think its the lovingness he displays to all those around him that reminds me of Harry.

4) Charles Darwin
Darwin was the pioneer of the Theory of Evolution. Many people don’t like him and disagree with his theories… just like Joel.

5) Gimli
Gimli the dwarf from Lord of the Rings was a resiliant and stubborn little dwarf. He fought valiently for his beleifs and knew how to swing an axe.

6) Osama Bin Ladin
He’s a wanted man who hates Americans. Like Joel Cosgrove he is a believer in direct action to achieve social justice. Nuff said.

**************************************

Last year Joel ran for President on a platform of free printing for students. This is yet to happen. As an honours student (who does not get free printing from his faculty) I need to print shit out now but have no money on my SCS account. I move that we send Joel our assignments, drafts, blackboard notes yadda yadda that we need printed off, ’till he fulfills his promise. His email is president@vuwsa.org.nz, you can call his office on 04 463 6986 and dictate, or drop in and see him with your flash drive. I am sure he will be more than happy to help you out.

It may also be pointed out that the author looks like Tin Tin, Calvin (as in Calvin and Hobbes), Kevin Rudd and Herman Goering.

    Hasn’t Joel lost his Sailor hat?

    Maybe the Workers Party liberated in the name of the revolution.
    I am unsure. I saw him with it on last week… if he did loose it we should find him some sort of alternate head gear, like an American Indian headress.

    I’m thinking a Bjork-esque Big Day Out head piece.

    That would make him look like an unwaxed fertility symbol… couldn’t we get him a Louis XIV Sun King hat instead?
