At least I made him laugh.

One of the Creative was messing around with a camera and milling around my desk... so I asked him what he was doing. He responded that he was trying to figure out how to work the camera our AV guy gave him. I explained to him it was working and good DSLR camera's don't show the image on the back LCD like Commercial cameras... then I asked him what he was going to take pictures of. He smiled big and his eyes darted back and forth, "Uh, you!"

I figured it must have something to do with my lovely new magical mustache that mrhavisham hates so much. But as my very cute coworker went on, "We need a photo of an angry IT guy who doesn't want to be bothered by another stupid question... so look annoyed" and he pointed the camera at me. I tried to look as deadpan as possible. After he took the picture he started to crack up laughing. At least I know he doesn't think of me as the angry-unhelpful IT guy.

My recreation of the picture with my isight camera (I think my 'stache looks better in the olde timey Sepia)

Re: Snidely Whiplash
Monkey ties the love interest of local cops to CalTrain tracks while foreclosing on widows and orphans? Suddenly the news coming our of SF makes sense!

You need an Amish hat or a pith helmet!

I told my mom I wanted a bowler hat for xmas. Maybe I should also ask for a pith helmet. then I can change hats to go from Villian to Great white hunter hero.

A pith helmet? When did you develop a lisp, or a need for headgear for the process?

It’s not that I hate the mustache.....OK Yea I do!
You look like you're hunting after Penelope Pitstop

Look at your icon, and then look at the photo in this post. You’ve got such a handsome face…..WHY MUST U COVER IT UP!

One day I'll hold you down and shave you.
I beat up your boyfriend, I’m sure I can take you :-)

Monocle, please.
I personally like it. Though, I have to say, it's giving me a Mr. Peanut vibe. I know he doesn't have a mustache, but there ya go.

I don't know why this reminded me of an incident at the end of the workday today but…
We were processing the day's FED EX packages and someone said something about sexual harassment. One of our bosses was there and said "It isn't harassment unless it makes you giggle." which broke us all up to the point where he had to tell us to contain ourselves as we had to maintain a proper work space.

I sort of agree with mrhavisham, but you definitely captured the pissed off IT guy, though you could also be a wine taster.
