Taller? What, like a giant?


I don't remember parking meters being so low.

Wow, now you look like my family, all of us tower over everybody, and it kinda sucks.

alex awesome said...

It looks like a reclaimed handicapped meter. Either that, or you grew very tall indeed in a short period of time. You'll have to be in waist-up scenes while walking on your knees from now on.

Actually, have any actors ever had to do that? I know about compensating for short actors, but I haven't heard of compensating for very tall ones.

Crushproof said...

I think that one musta been stuck into the cement like that. Either that or you have gotten a lot taller, and just didn't realize it!!! Parking meters are a sore subject with me however, so rock on Jorge!

I knew eating those cucumbers from your garden would have residual effects...

Jacki said...

Hagrid? Is that you?

I once went in a bathroom that had a tiny little toilet the size of a child's training toilet.

Chedder Fish said...

I have to say, I watched the Ace of Cakes ep last night, and hubby and I both commented on how tall you were honestly. What a coincidence you'd end up w/ a Mini-MEter.

Juju said...

Seriously are those made for little people?

Connie said...

I agree, it might be a little person spot you're standing at... that or where the little clown car parks.

Mrs. Pilker said...

Jacki beat me to it... I thought you looked a bit like Hagrid in that pic...

schwartz said...

and how tall are you exactly? 7'9''?

Darla said...

You are quite entertaining.

James Hernandez said...

Jorge,

Dude where were you? Lilliput or Blefuscu?

Megan said...

Funny you should post that today. My husband and I were watching the LOST episode of Ace of Cakes last night and my husband thought you looked really tall...

billybobtexas said...

cool shot, someone needs to photoshop a Smart car even smaller in the parking spot. :-)

laurie said...

Maybe it's so you can pay from the car window?

Or maybe you're just taller, ghost Jorge.

It's nice that you'll actually use Lost quotes here! =)

I hope you laughed in a scary voice when you dropped the qarter in the machine.

Topanga said...

Andi said...

I didn't know you still use parking meters in the US, especially such short ones.

You should try water and some fertilizer. Maybe it'll grow taller ;)

Suzie-Q said...

Dude, your feet are filthy!

Jodi said...

It should be a half price meter.

redelf said...

It's for really small cars or dogs.

Clare said...

Were you in some miniature-city theme park?

hahaha, that's hysterical. I don't think most parking meters are that low. At least, where I live, they aren't.

Tena Lynn said...

Maybe there were budget cuts in steel poles and had to remove 1 ft from every meter?

Christina Bauer said...

Or everything just got smaller...

Sadly, in the news Friday:

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
MOUNT PLEASANT, Wis. -- One southern Wisconsin homeowner is probably not in love with the Oscar Mayer wiener. The famed hot dog's Wienermobile crashed Friday into the deck and garage of a home in Mount Pleasant, about 35 miles south of Milwaukee.

Police said the driver was trying to turn the Wienermobile around in the driveway and thought she was moving in reverse. But she instead went forward and hit the home. It sat in the driveway as if it were stuck in the garage Friday afternoon.

No one was home and no one was injured. No citations were immediately issued.

Both the home and vehicle suffered moderate damage, which Oscar Mayer spokeswoman Sydney Lindner says insurance will cover.
