Guess who?

He was a man of peace

He was strangely attractive

He had exceptional vigor

He was surprisingly conciliatory, sensitive and warm.

He loved children

Landlords all remembered him for his civility and pleasant disposition

He devoured the books of three public libraries

He dreamt fleetingly of becoming a Benedictine monk.

He had an inner strength and was guided by his spirit and his instincts

His intellectual curiosity was limitless.

His thirst for knowledge was unquenchable

At no stage in his life did he spend anything on himself

He wrote poetry

He believed deeply in God

At midnight he would interrupt his work and prepare the food for his dog

It was an entirely natural thing for him to stop his car and share his food with young cyclists along the road.

He had deep blue eyes that many found bewitching

He could not bear to eat meat, because it meant the death of a living creature.

The very clarity of his reasoning made everything obvious.

He knew far more than thousands of diploma-decorated academics

IANO? Hitler? Jesus?

(I have no idea because the link was blocked by Barracuda firewall for "Intolerance and Hatred".)

I love that your guesses are Hitler and Jesus.

I don't remember Jesus driving a car...

Jesus had a Hot Rod.

I wasn't sure until I read the bit about fancy shoes and enjoying clearly it's Hoagy, right?

I Ain't No Oprah said...

Hoagy has a hot rod?

4 ounces?

cake said...

Waitasec, if Jesus has a hot rod (and four ounces) and Hoagy has a hot rod (and four ounces)...are you saying Hoagy is Jesus?

I'm going to need some time to digest every picture I've ever seen of Jesus, he had very un-fancy sandals on...

Given IANO's Hitler obsession, the choice was fairly obvious...

but admit it -- most of you thought these attributes could also apply to Leonard Cohen.

Yes, even you. You know who you are...

I don't think Hitler would like Leonard Cohen.

Or his damn Jewish dog!

Are those tea and oranges all the way from China?

Hitler would've loved Suzanne...everyone does.

On second reading...

It makes sense that this was Hitler.

Anyone who(m) landlords love has gotta have Nazi tendencies.
