Some Philosophical Musings On The Nature Of Fame

Nah, just kidding. I don’t feel like doing any philosophical musings tonight. I’ll just tell a little story and then we’ll roll out with the photos.

So I saw a celebrity today, Mr. Jimmy Fallon. Jimmy Fallon, for those of you who don’t know, is the host of the current Tonight Show. He’s also a quite funny comic and from what I saw today, a really regular nice guy who seems really enjoy the attention he gets. He was so mobbed by the crowd that I wondered what he thought of going from being a regular guy to someone who needs a police escort to cross a street in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

He was in town, Cambridge to be exact, to get an award from the Harvard Lampoon, the part of Harvard that is fond of giving awards to celebrities and then parading them through Cambridge in some kind of strange or comical way. Mr. Fallon was supposed to be paraded through on the back of some kind of Roman chariot, when in actuality he was in the back of a carriage that did not look very Roman.

Before the festivities, Mr. Fallon ducked into the Hong Kong restaurant on Mass Ave. I was amazed by the number of people taking his photo because not at least because he was going to be outside in a slow moving vehicle momentarily being taken through the town.

If you don’t mind the risk of being trampled by a horse and getting a bit manhandled by a Boston police officer, you too can see Mr. Fallon, up close and personal.

Here he is actually pointing at me:

And the rest of them. I know he looks like he is wearing a salad on his head:
