Have any of your readers notice the similarity between that nice young man, Minister for the Ageing Chris Pyne, and the Flight Centre pilot? Could they possibly be related?

Have any readers noticed the resemblance between Antony Green and Flacco. Could they possibly be related?

Have any readers notice the resemblance between Julia Gillard and Zippy the Conehead. Are they distant cousins?

Have any readers noticed the resemblance between Dr Brendan and Laura Palmer’s father Leland in “Twin Peaks”? Should Special Agent Dale Cooper be called in to investigate their links?

Have any readers noticed the resemblance between Julie Bishop and Barry “The Cougar” Dawson? Are they indeed one and the same? Have they ever been seen in the same room together?

Have any of your readers noticed the resemblance between deputy opportunity leader Julie Bishop and chanteuse and Page 3 girl Sam Fox? Could they possibly be related?

I was fascinated by the suggestion last week that Julia Gillard may be related to Zippy the Conehead. Does this link mean the Acting PM is also be related to another member of the Zippy family, Rainbow Zippy, from the popular 1970’s British children’s program?

Have any of your readers noticed the resemblance between Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and that other member of the faithful, Father John Patrick Mulchay, from M*A*S*H? Could they possibly be related?

Playing with my four year old over the weekend I noticed a remarkable similarity between a Lego man and our PM. Could they possibly be related? Is Kevin Rudd plastic, as in the “capable of being shaped or formed” meaning of plastic? His campaign performance certainly suggests so.

Have any of your readers also noticed the remarkable similarity between those two young(ish) men in a hurry, new MP and Parliamentary Secretary Bill Shorten and Russian presidential nominee, Dmitri Medvedev? Are they distant cousins?

  Have any of your readers noticed the remarkable similarity between Mother Teresa of Calcutta and Hillary Rodham Clinton? Could they be related? Can Christopher Hitchens enlighten us further?

Sale ends tomorrow.
