An Anonymous Eagle Investigation: Is Rubie Q Actually Danny Pudi?

You might remember that about a month ago, our formerly fearless leader and perpetual Nattering Nabob of Negativity, Rubie Q, took his talents to the nursery. The post was too long for me to read front to back, but from the little bit that I skimmed, I gathered the following: something something twins something something busy babies diapers something something lazy something something sabbatical.

Anyway, Rubie's sabbatical started January 6, 2012.

Then, about a week later, this happened:

Danny Pudi, as you probably know, is one of the most famous Marquette basketball fans alive, in addition to being the funniest half-Polish, half-Indian actor in the history of Hollywood. He's also on Community, which doesn't really have much to do with this story, other than giving me an excuse to link to this gif of Alison Brie running.

With the news of the birth of the Babies Pudi, a couple of enterprising amateur Columbos tried to connect the dots:

  • Rubie takes a break from the blog on January 6 because his wife is having twins.
  • Rubie is a Marquette basketball fan.
  • Rubie's name isn't actually Rubie.
  • Danny Pudi's wife gives birth to twins on January 12.

The whispers started soon after, gained some steam, and then finally reached a fever pitch: Could it be that the man behind the Rubie Q curtain is actually mega-superstar Danny Pudi?

We mobilized the Anonymous Eagle Bureau of Nonsensical Investigations to get to the bottom of things.

After the jump, the investigation continues: is Rubie Q actually Danny Pudi?
