Sara Gilbert + “Powder Monkey” — Dead Ringers?

Sara Gilbert + Powder Monkey

In the mid-19th century, “Powder Monkeys” were the names of the young lads aboard naval warships whose most common task was carrying gun powder to the weaponry. It was no simple job to be had, and these boys were roughly between the ages of 11 and 18, but now we’re wondering if it was common for girls to disguise themselves as boys in order to get in on the action.

We only ask this because Sara Gilbert (circa her time on ‘Roseanne’) pretty much looks like that famous shot of a Powder Monkey that shows up in every Google search.

There were a couple of things Gilbert hid from the media — the one that immediately comes to mind is her sexuality — so it is plausible she could have hidden this fact from us as well. And if you’re wondering how she could have possibly been alive during that time period, the answer is simple: she probably discovered the same secret of immortality as Jean-Ralphio, Leonardo DiCaprio and Zach Galifianakis did.
