JP to A-Rod in Five Easy Steps

One guy has 554 career home runs. The other guy has thirteen. So who would have thought you could go from Juan Pierre to Alex Rodriguez in only 5 steps? But you can (actually, there are technically 5 photos but only 4 'steps' between them...but we're sticking with saying 5 steps). In anycase, here are the steps illustrated below:

So your task is to correctly label each of the 5 photos such that the transition from JP to A-Rod adheres to but a single rule: you can only change two letters per step.

This puzzle does not count towards the PCS standings, but whoever gets it first can put me down as a reference on their next job application.

Get to it!*

Solution here

*Alternatively, if you can't figure out what the hell I'm talking about, you can instead discuss who above looks the most unhappy: A-Rod, JP, or the guy in photo 2.

Still trying to figure out the boobs. . .after staring at them for 15 minutes.

Wicks said...

This is clever I'm pretty sure I have 3 correct the others are hard.

J. Steve said...

I can't even figure out what the first and last pictures are supposed to be called!

karina said...

Slight correction sent in.

(had to delete previous post due to a typo)

Gil Gamesh said...

made a guess

DanGarion said...

Is that Jennifer Love Hewitt! :)

Neeebs said...

Can we guess on this site or do we have to send it in.


I think it would add to the humor to guess HERE.

Ok guys, i think i'm going to give you a clue for a word that helped me to reach a conclusion, it's taken from a movie. If you guess the movie, you can put me as a reference on your next job applicationWhat is it about men and nudity? Particularly breasts? How can you be so interested in them?
Well...
But, but, seriously: they're just breasts. Every second person in the world has them.
Oh, more than that, when you think about it: you know, Meat Loaf has a very nice pair.
But they're... they're odd looking, they're for milk, your mother has them, you've seen a thousand of them... What's all the fuss about?

Feel free to guess in the comments, as this isn't a PCS puzzle.

Nonetheless, one correct answer has been sent in, and I don't think it's from anyone who commented here. (Karina, Gil Gamesh's answers are incorrect).

Eric Karros said...

FYI the job application comment is irrelevant to the puzzle...

DanGarion said...

@Karina: My wife has them too, still doesn't make it wrong to like them.

J. Steve said...

Just figured it out... Very funny, EK!

J. Steve said...

And focusing on the breasts is what helped me figure it out! :)

Eric Karros said...

On second thought, don't post the answer here if you have it. It will ruin for others.

J Steve is the 2nd correct solver!

rbnlaw said...

Still can't get past the boobs. Or at least link it to A-Rod.

Orel said...

Karina, have you been watching Hugh Grant movies again?

Eric Karros said...

Answer will post at noon PT!

Karina: You just will never be able to understand a man's obsession with Breasts. (Why did I capitalize the word Breasts?)

karina said...

I forget people on this site are mostly men. I get you like breasts (and Dangarion there's nothing wrong in liking them), but i still quote Julia Roberts: what's the fuss about it?.

Orel, chick flicks for me are like breasts for men. Notting Hills rock! (in part because of Hugh Grant)

DanGarion said...

@karina : I happen to agree, Notting Hill does rock! And so does Julia Roberts!
