Spot the Non-Dave

CONTEST: Spot the Non-Dave! Over the last month, I’ve received so many wonderful pictures of guys named Dave that it seems a shame not to share them with the world. So I’m holding a contest. Below are twenty-two individuals. Twenty-one are named Dave. Can you spot the interloper? Email narbonic@netzero.com with your guess. I’ll draw a winner at random from the correct entries. And that winner will receive… an original daily (not Sunday) Narbonic strip! Huzzah!

Another thing that seemed like a good idea at the time but now strikes me as distinctly odd. Funny, though. Most of the Dave photos were sent in by readers, of course. The alt-tag dedication is to Dave Farago, Andrew’s brother. (No, really.)

  1. 1) He definitely has the full face of a Jake.
    2) A Matt, pure and simple.
    3) Richard!
    4) A tough read. Probably an Andrew.
    5) Hmm… an Anton?
    6) He has the smile and forehead of a Jason.
    7) A Lenny.
    8) One of the world’s few remaining Clems.
    9) At that distance… I’m thinking a John.

    17) Some kind of Adam, by the looks of things.

    19) A lesser Eric, if not a full-on William.
    20) You wouldn’t suspect it, but certain telltale signs give him away as an Adrian.
    21) Just another Sam.
    22) Ding ding ding! Dave attained!

  2. OK, everybody sing!

    Well, it’s a non-Dave sight!
    You gotta pick out which one is wrong!
    Yeah it’s a non-Dave sight!
    (And I’m destroying my fav’rite song.)

    Just look thru all of the geeks,
    And in a couple of weeks,
    Then Sarge will tell … who’s … right!

    Seeing Daves …
    In their control they have got … us!
    Being Dave …
    Makes you an Il-lum-i-naaaaaat-us!  Yeah!

    Well, it’s a non-Dave sight!
    You gotta pick out which one’s the fake!
    Yeah it’s a non-Dave sight!
    How much more singing, can you guys take?

    Oh, yeah, it’s pointless, I know,
    But it’s all part of the show,
    And Sarge will tell us which one’s fake!
    How much more singing can you take?
    Please stop for Heaven’s sake!

  3. I didn’t find Narbonic until way after the contest was over, but I did manage to narrow it down to two possibilities, one of whom is actually the real imposter. I was pretty pleased with my self.

  4. And here’s my fifteen minutes.  What I remember most is that somebody was convinced I was a Sylvester.

  5. Every Dave I’ve ever knows had short dark hair. So, assuming that my experience holds true for everyone, I can choose between 1, 12, and 17, with the caveat that some of the hair (like 11’s) isn’t distinguishable. I pick 12!
