Buster Keaton Eyes
You may have heard the song “Bette Davis Eyes” sung by Kim Carnes. It would be nice to have Bette Davis eyes, but I have I Buster Keaton eyes – and that’s nothing to sing about. Buster Keaton was a vaudeville performer, screen star, and director. In all, he was an extremely talented man. His eyes and facial expressions had much to do with his fame.
Eyes can be beautiful and expressive. I’ve always liked my hazel eyes, but the other day I noticed a little baggage accumulating there. Take a look at Keaton’s eyes in his later years. Not to be impolite, but bags under my eyes are beginning to look very similar to his. Unlike Keaton, my eyes and facial expressions have nothing to do with any fame. It’s time to get out the cold compresses, cucumbers, tea bags, and creams and trash those bags. Or maybe it’s time for an eye lift. Now that would be a real eye-opener!
Here are some eyes that will have you seeing funny!
