From the incredible piece of online content that is the Twitter account 80s Footballers Ageing Badly comes this classic match-up of Moustachioed John Gillies versus 70s Chris Butler. Topical references all around.

It seems nobody's mentioned me on this thread yet, which I'm surprised at considering the number of people I've been told I look like.

Don't need to do that, one simply puts [ i m g ] tags around the image's URL

e.g.
