H.P. Lovecraft + Michael Phelps: The Same Person?

While watching the Olympics last night I noticed an uncanny resemblance between ...

H.P. Lovecraft, writer of awesome stories involving horrifying tentacled monsters


Michael Phelps, Olympic gold medalist and possible superhuman.

Coincidence? I think not. My friend Raygan thinks that "Clearly, he attained immortality and superhuman physical prowess though his congress with Nyarlathotep." To which my friend Shane replied, "Swimmer, Raygan! Clearly it was the Deep Ones, not Nyarlathotep!"

Anyway you slice it, the resemblance is uncanny.
