Two Walkers plus Bonus


Benjamin Walker, star of the recent film "Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter."


Comedian Jimmie "J.J." Walker, "The Dyn-o-mite Kid."




And since we're talking about Dyn-o-mite, your Gimmick Month Bonus is:


Alfred Nobel, "The Dyn-o-mite Inventor Who Became Remorseful About The Military Uses Of His Products And Posthumously Established The Nobel Prizes."

    1. The problem was, it also removed window ledges, and the buildings they were attached to.

    1. Though some would argue that it's been Gimmick Decade for two years now, since the launch of the site, I'm trying to do extra-gimmicky entries this month.
