Walter Arnheim dinner

So I had dinner with Walter Arnheim last night at a chinese restaurant known for its Peking Duck. Located in suburban Virginia, this was a pretty typical strip mall that could have been anywhere in the country. What made the dinner memorable, other than the company, was the decal that we noticed on the window of a nearby drycleaners. It looked so much like Walter that it seemed almost implausible that he did not serve as its model. This was an uncanny doppelganger with a level of resemblance that few can match. He said that the decal is widely used among dry cleaners and that others have contacted him asking if it was really just a coincidence.
