Post a picture of something or someone that is not easy to identify and see who comes closest to identifying it . . .

I'll start with: who is this famous person?

We'd riposte vigorously with the full might of our highly advanced military forces, only, well, it's Christmas, and the "Charles De Gaulle" is in the shop having her elastic band rewound and this week's propellor replacement, and the metro is on strike again, and we're running low on vin tres ordinaire to clean our weapons with and...

Oh fuck it. We surrender.

Thought some of you Brits might have guessed correctly - taken at the Guinness St. James Gate Brewery 7th floor bar - Gravity.

You get the tokens for Guinness when you purchase your museum ticket, and make your way to the top to drink delicious Guinness and check out Dublin!
