    You've probably seen this on FB but if you haven't it's a fun few minutes of life at a gas station:

    Wow. Someone went to the same gas station two years apart? And happened to be coming from her day job?

    DEFINITELY FAKE.

    Jesus, ifilus.

    Actors in LA? The odds. Needing gas? Hmm. Recognizing an opportunity to get some screen time and making the most of it? Shocking.

    That their song choices were Bon Jovi and Eurythmics? Now THAT is puzzling.

    Leno probably insisted on picking the songs.

    Wow. And she happened to show up on a 'Tonight Show' bit twice in two years?


    DEFINITELY RANDOM & COINCIDENTAL!

    The gas station by my house has six pumps. I go to the same one every time because it's the easiest to access.

    The fault lies with Jay's people picking her again, though there no way you DON'T put this one on air. It's not like they were plants.

    I imagine this might be more rampant in newspapers than people realize, if yours does something like a weekly "walk and talk" or man on the street segment. At one past place, they finally instituted a practice of making sure to run the people's names in the internal database first, to make sure we weren't constantly reusing people or running comments from people with warrants out for their arrest. One week, five of the six people I had gotten snippets from had to be scrapped, since they had all previously been in the paper.

    As if - that guy is totally a 6. Not worth my time to talk to. I don't even get out of bed for someone less than an 8.
