Me And My Chicken

an agency will find a pet that looks, and acts like you

Many people are said to resemble their pets. Me and My Chicken is a service that will find a pet that looks just like you by initially matching your hair and facial characteristics, but then further refining the choice by factoring your body type, gait, habits and other subtle mannerisms to determine the perfect double. The resulting match need not be the customary dog that is usually associated with this type of similarity. Some people bear an uncanny resemblance to other forms of animal life, such as farm animals of every kind, primates, rodents, birds, snakes, reptiles, fish and even insects in some cases. All have their human equivalents just waiting to be introduced to each other to form the perfect couple.

Do you want to meet your match?

       + sounds like a dating agency. im sure we'll go out on one date and then by the end of the night she'll be rubbing up against my leg, then i'll put a bowl full of water out for her, put the collar on her, then she'll never return my calls.
benfrost, Feb 02 2006

       might just drag a full-length mirror around on a leash.
xandram, Feb 02 2006

       You may find a chicken that looks like you, but you sure as heck ain't gonna find one that looks like me.
DrCurry, Feb 02 2006

       if you shift the order of the links, the last one could be laying the second one....
xenzag, Feb 03 2006

       ....which is probably why it looks frightened... :)
ConsulFlaminicus, Feb 03 2006

       i'd be interested to find a piece of fried chicken that resembled me. maybe the effigy of colonel sanders materialising in the mashed potatoes and gravy also.
benfrost, Feb 03 2006

       other variations - replica of your head found in a bag of spuds, your ear as a potato crisp, your face in a slime mould... bf you might also like my icon hunter   

       Does anyone else notice that a cat's bum looks like the cross section of a cut banana - or do you just not like to say?
xenzag, Feb 03 2006

       We didn't and now we don't.
calum, Feb 03 2006

       next you'll be wanting your wife as a fish.
benfrost, Feb 03 2006

       In text form, [xenzag] bears more than a passing resemblance to [xandram]. But which one's the pet?
wagster, Feb 03 2006

       bf - I've ordered up the goldfish bowl, complete with pirate's cave for herself to lurk in, reading and knitting once the transformation is complete.....   

       I'm also contemplating the opposite i.e. my fish as a wife, featuring herself walking around with her head in an inverted water filled bowl, sporting a fish's pouting visage, complete with bulging eyes, and flapping gills on her cheeks.
xenzag, Feb 04 2006

       See link - "DrCurry's Chicken...uh..cat"...uh... pekingese?
david_scothern, Feb 04 2006

       your fish as a wife. xenzag, that is truly mysterious. (eyebrow raised accordingly)
benfrost, Feb 04 2006

       But what if I can't afford a white gorilla?
Pac-man, Feb 04 2006

       Paint yourself black.
wagster, Feb 04 2006

       This all sounds like its coming out of the cats bum...
100 percent, Feb 04 2006

       One of my earlier ideas (Coat Guttering - now deleted) featured the mysterious 100 percent as a damp goat in the annotations. I have it on good authority that the said goat has dried out and now spends most of its time being a hamster, frantically spinning its wheel, sweat lashing from its brown pelt, only pausing to hungrily snap up the odd bread crumb tossed casually in its direction :-)
xenzag, Feb 05 2006

       I have an uneasy,creeping, feeling of horror that this agency would recommend one of those hairless cats as my "lookalike" pet.   

       Just a tip: DON'T Google for "Hairless Cats" if you want to hang on to your breakfast!
Minimal, Feb 06 2006

       //Coat Guttering - now deleted// - Why? I figured that was a keeper.
wagster, Feb 06 2006

       wagster - coat guttering had to go, because it was "moderated" as being too similar to an earlier posting - boo hoo.   

       ConsulF - for even better examples, check out the work of 14th century artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo   

       2 fries - tossing you a juicy bone (not of fish variety) for your link - made me laugh out loud - thanks for that - brilliant.
xenzag, Feb 06 2006

       Missed this one..... excellent +
daseva, Dec 30 2011

       I would very much like to see the results of this service as applied to my arch-nemesis. I'm thinking it would come up with some kind of cybernetic neoprene-clad camel/alligator hybrid, but who knows?
