Hot Chocolate

Determine a band's leader by analyzing a publicity photo.

A band's inclusion on this blog reflects neither an endorsement nor a criticism of its music. This post is merely intended as a spotlight on the inner political workings of a collection of individuals who are in the midst of a cooperative, creative endeavor.

The Process:
You, dear reader, please answer the question, "Who's in charge here?"

After sufficient discussion has taken place, a verdict can then be passed based on a majority vote.

THE VERDICT (Updated!)

Here is the tally:

Obviously it's the Man with the Hat. And I have to think that hat really belongs to Bearded Steve from Blues Clues on the right, because he doesn't look all that happy that the leader borrowed it for the photoshoot.

Since we're on the theme of children's TV, Gordon of 'Sesame Street,' there on the far left is in charge. I'm being consistent with last week's "vote for the bald guy" logic.

And, McGone, Steve from 'Blues Clues' wore a green striped shirt. Eventually, Steve left the show and gave way to Joe, who wore an orange striped shirt. The blue striped shirt guy in Chocolate Thunder looks like he might have appeared in the original pilot of the show but was then replaced for being "too scary" for the three-year-old target audience.

Steve now hangs out with the guys from Flaming Lips and records his own music. That sounds like a joke but it's not.

Oops. I meant to say 'Hot Chocolate.' 'Chocolate Thunder'
was, of course, former NBA star Darryl Dawkins.

I regret the error.

again it's down to a "bald vs hat" choice, and again i vote that "bald" is in charge.

It's the marshmallow!

OMG. I have no idea. They all look so authoritative. Except for the one white guy with the striped shirt. He looks... not authoritative. Checkered shirt white guy looks like he might be in charge and not know it. White suit man, far left, looks like he's in charge of fifty ladies on his speed dial.

Yeah, I'll go with him. Bald guy in precious white is in charge.

Far left is in charge. He has the most fashion sense so is therefore most in touch with the world and able to lead the band forward.

PS Joe on Blue's Clues wore sweaters of different colors, not just the orange.
