The Sounds of Lieberman
NPR's All Things Considered ran a little contest where they asked listeners to submit characterizations of famous people's voices. Celebrities include Marlon Brando, Carol Channing, Dave Matthews, and a certain junior senator from Connecticut. You can listen to the show HERE.
I illustrated some of my favorite vocal impressions from the list:
"A soggy brown paper bag" — Tess Wilson
"An exhausted math teacher who needs to explain what a square is for the Nth time" — Nicholas Freidin
"The fine, boring, important print in your insurance policy" — Susan Kunkel
"The straining engine of a previously owned Yugo" — Dave Airozo
