    Nice job as usual on the Parks and Regurgitation spoof. The fourth person from the right on the splash page looks familiar – is that you? I remember you included your kids in the Glee splash page also. Have you snuck yourself in any other spoofs recently? I may have missed it.

    • Tom says:

      That’s a half-hearted caricature of me in the Parks and Regurgitation splash… the lady with the brown hair and coffee cup in the center back is my sister-in-law Teresa, and the guy second from the right in the back is my brother-in-law Chris.
