Seven years after he launched www.menwholooklikekennyrogers.com, Vista's Jaimie Muehlhausen says his website of Rogers look-alike photos still gets 1500 hits a day.

"This was a big year. He had a new record, and then the whole thing happened over the plastic surgery. But I won't comment on that because Kenny has been really good to me. He always tells everyone he thinks the site is hilarious. He says his favorite [look-alike] is 'Hot Tub Kenny.' "

Muehlhausen recently embarked on another commercial enterprise with www.redneckwordsofwisdom.com.

"I'm from Tulsa, Oklahoma. My wife is from South Carolina. Every time we went back home we heard all these sayings [such as] 'I'm happier than a puppy with two peters.'... Our relatives talk this way all the time. One time I went back home and my relatives had a big party. This guy got really drunk and passed out on the couch. The next morning I asked him how he felt, and he said, 'I feel like I got eaten by a bear and shit off a cliff.' That inspired me."

Muehlhausen's book, Redneck Words of Wisdom, published by Chronicle Books of San Francisco, was released two weeks ago. (Muehlhausen's Americana/roots-rock band, Jensen and the Small Pox Mountain Boys, is a serious endeavor, he says.)

Formerly art director for Snowboarder magazine, Muehlhausen now works as creative director for Tony Hawk Inc.
