tongueman frontman Gene Simmons is being mistaken for all kinds of people these days: he recently had to point out that that’s not him in that so-bad-it’s-good film The Room (it’s Johnny Wiseau, who admittedly does bear a slight resemblance). And now, even the non-human animals are getting in on the action.
Simmons has given thumbs up to a doppelgänger by the name of Genie — a calf born in Kerrville Texas last Friday. After Genie’s picture was posted by a marketing company over the weekend, the Internets couldn’t even, due to her being a dead ringer. Although not dead. Simmons himself reposted the image, as did the official KISS Facebook page; on Twitter, Simmons scrawled, “This is real, folks!”
The bovine belongs to Heather Leonard Taccette, who — perhaps ominously for Genie — works at the Cowboy Steak House. However, Genie can rest easy: rather than dinner, she’ll become the official mascot of the steakhouse. So, happy ending, then.
