Yes, I have SxSW to thank for yet another nugget of awesomeness this past week: my encounter with Matthew Lesko.
Thank you for taking time out of your schedule running around in front of government buildings to take this photo with me, Mr. Lesko!!!
Dude. I think he has your wallet.
John Lewis wins this comment thread.
Yup, hands down, the champion.
Oh no! The Riddler’s got Chris! What are we gonna do!?!
Shit! Is that what “free money” means, John??? DAMMIT.
All kinds of AWESOME. I’ve found my next Halloween costume!
@ John + 1
Is that what you’re going to look like when you get older? I sure hope so.
ah!! I saw Doug benson’s photo of him also! I had no idea he was still alive. so amazing, I love he still wears the suit.
Is this your Dream Lord?
I think it is time for you to have that ‘seriously, was I or was I not adopted?’ conversation with your parents. You two look like relation.
Did you ask him who irons on all those question mark patches onto all of his suits? This is the most pressing question my mind needs an answer to.
Helluva resemblance there…I think YOU might be on of those question marks, Mr Hardwick. Holy shit, Celebrity Maury Povich!! “Matthew Lesko….you ARE the father!!!”
I saw him on the train here in Chicago once, trying to read the map, looking confused. And wearing a question mark suit. So completely bizarre. I guess he dresses that way ALL the time.
I told Doug Benson ?ML? was cast as Mr. Roarke in “Final Fantasy Island”
One day I happened to walk into a Starbucks where Mr. Lesko was sitting with (I presume?) his wife, reading the paper. Wearing an orange-with-brown-?s Riddler suit. Now, he wasn’t in town for anything official, nor would he have been here in Middle-of-nowhere, PA, but yeah, that’s totally his day-to-day ensemble. I didn’t get a photo, because he was off-duty, so to speak.
The coolest part was that he had, in the parking lot, an orange Scion Breadbox with brown ? decals TO MATCH HIS OUTFIT. I imagine he’s got an entire fleet of them back at his lair, and never goes out except in whatever day’s colour scheme he’s selected. Or better yet, when he’s doing a cross-country tour, his minion chauffeurs follow him wherever he’s bound, but they all meet up at a motel in the next county to run the world’s creepiest Chinese fire drill so that he doesn’t have to wear the same outfit for a fortnight on end.
Chris Nolan is using them Inception tricks to promote the next Dark Knight movie.
Excellent! I totally want to see his closet…
Dude… as a close personal friend of his you really need to get craig ferguson off the meth. He looks terrible!
he gives me second-hand embarrassment, which is something I will never be a fan of, as I do not enjoy feeling uncomfortable. and it’s a infomercial that is waaaaay past its prime. hell, I haven’t heard him yell at me in a few years.
I respect the photo-op though, I’d definitely do the same. It’s a minor version of nostalgia.
Lesko hangs out at the same coffee shop I do. He has like 30 different question mark suits.
So, is Lesko tall or is Chris shorter than I thought?
[...] Chris met the Riddler (oh, okay, Matthew Lesko, same tailor), flew to Chicago to entertain the masses, and learned why [...]
Moreover such financial institutions are not willing
to take up higher risks in running such small loans. They are
legal because they buy their way into the state laws
and the amount of money they generate is too great to be ignored.
