Ron Howard's Brother Clint Voted Freakiest Dude by Memphis Based Self Esteem Club

Memphis, Tenn. Members of the Memphis based "Self Esteem Club" - gathered Tuesday to debate the features of Clint Howard - Ron Howard's brother and former Gentle Ben star. Dome shaped head or rodent-like teeth were the characteristics being discussed.

In a statement by founder John Gordan,

"Our Self Esteem Club has been helping Memphis area children feel good about themselves by discussing people that are different and disturbing. Our focus for the next few months will be on Clint Howard - DAMN IT is he a great choice... I mean, just look at that guy !"

The "At least you're not Clint Howard" opening day festivities included:
  1. "Let's Reeaaally Take a look at These Features" (lecture)
  2. "How anyone can 'be themselves' .....except Clint Howard" (lecture)
  3. "If I were Clint Howard I would Probably Walk Around Like This...." (improv session)
  4. "Just Look at Him" (meditation and personal reflection session)
  5. "Let's tell him How we Really Feel" (arts and crafts/postcard session)

"The community has really embraced this program - and the kids? ..Forget about it. Basic human nature will tell you that if you see someone else worse off than yourself and you can laugh at that person - you're going to feel better", said Gordan.

"When you see one of these kids, especially the screwed up ones throwing a beanbag at a huge picture of Clint Howard and hitting him square on his big assed dome head...and then the kid jumps for joy - you've made a change. It's a magical feeling."

How did I miss this event? The list of festivities has me wondering how so much fun can possibly be packed into one 24 hour period given the laws of nature.

I especially liked "Just Look at Him" (meditation and personal reflection session)

I have long been fascinated by this guy. I read he was Ron Howard's bro and suddenly it made sense. I mean, how can a guy who looks this freaky make it into so many movies?

@trinalikeswine I've lived in Memphis, TN and that's where the interest in Ron's brother ends.
