Brushes with celebrity

FARK has another “brushes with celebrity” thread. I read to the end to see just how sad and pathetic it would get. The two best postings (from a hilarity point of view), firstly in the “actually famous” category:

“Oh and I smoked a joint once with Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and Keith Richards. It was at the after party of Live Aid, July 13, 1985. It was inadvertant, I stepped out on the balcony to get some air, and there they were smoking. I mean, what -do- you do when Neil Young hands you a joint? You take a toke, and pass it to Bob, is what you do.”

And in the “beyond pathetic” category:

“I created one of the icons for Wil [Wheaton]’s website.”

I was also mildly amused by the one from a guy who found his roommate snorting coke with Trent Reznor, but had no idea at the time that the polite friendly guy wasn’t just some random college student named Trent.
