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
