    I'm at a bar and Simon Baker, star of The Mentalist and my favorite movie, A Devil Weara Prada (don't ask), is here.
    I don't want to interrupt him, but it's cool to say hi when one of us leaves, right?

    Bad touch or good touch?

    Ijag, if he asks nice, I might give him a nice touch. He looks kinda homeless right now. If I get a pic I'll post it.

    If he's alone, buy him a drink. If not, leave him alone, although you can try to steal his used napkin to sell on eBay.

    Is that the Italian version?

    My personal rule for famous people is if you genuinely like their work - why not let them know if you can do it non-intrusively. I sent an e-mail to The Chicken when I heard he was thinking of retiring - and he sent me an e-mail back.
    Another time I was in Kihei, Maui at a bar called JoJos or CoCos or something - a couple people got all excited when Melissa Rivers showed up with a group of friends. And no, I didn't give a shit.

    You sent The Chicken an email.

    Elaborate, please.

    I read a story saying he might retire The Chicken suit. I found his website and said I wanted to thank him for adding a lot of enjoyment to the game of baseball, more than many who are in the Hall of Fame, and I wished him well. Ted replied and thanked me for the note and said he figured he would just cut back his schedule. It's not like he's a 20-year old kid any more.

    How old is he now? He's got to be damn near 60.

    Nah, someone's stereotypical rendering of the Italian version[/crossthread]
