The First Lady! What a feather she would be in CelebriGum's sooty gray cap! But by the time I got over to the theater, she had already arrived. Late Show security told me I might be able to take pictures later as she left, but that I shouldn't open the window.
I was wanded, as was everyone else going in. Even intern and occasional CelebriGum guest photographer Justin Tasolides wasn't exempt.
As the First Lady's final segment was ending, I returned to the theater. A large crowd had gathered on 53rd Street.
I mentioned my plan to photograph the First Lady to one Secret Service agent, and got the okay. But a moment after I took the photo below, the man by the front of the diagonally-parked SUV saw me and glared. I displayed my harmless little camera and smiled hopefully, but he apparently was not a CelebriGum fan. He vigorously gestured for me to move away from the window.
I decided CelebriGum wasn't worth dying for. I complied.
Shortly thereafter, I heard cheers as Michelle Obama came out. I boldly took a photo of her SUV as it pulled away.
Due to these extraordinary circumstances, CelebriGum is forced to present this simulation of the First Lady with the gum.
My apologies to Michelle Obama, the President, and the entire Obama family. Also to the Chevrolet division of General Motors.
At least the gum stood its ground against the man. But really, great effort producing a stand-out CelebriGum post, including displaying your cartooning talents. Must retweet this now.ReplyDelete
You're very kind.... once again I think I'll keep my day job.Delete
Through rain, sleet, snow, dark of night or glare of secret service agents, Celebrigum delivers. Actually I'm surprised the LS doesn't have a rooftop helipad for occasions like these.ReplyDelete
Thank God we don't. I'd have to put a piece of gum on the underside of the ledge and shoot upward.Delete
As Robert DiNiro might say, "Now do you really think our country is ready for a picture of a First Lady juxtaposed with old gum?"ReplyDelete
Or as Robert DeNiro might say now, "I have no comment. Forget it, I'm not saying nuthin."Delete
What a missed opportunity, imagine the hit counts after the headlines read "Late Show writer Steve Young was shot by Secret Service while taking a photo for his.... This headline is too long read the story already"ReplyDelete
Well, you'll get a photo of First Lady Mrs.Dole after Bob Dole is elected. Spoiler Alert: Bob Dole will enter the race in June.
Yes, a few of us around the office were talking about martyrdom as a promotional tool... but I'm not going to let the gum dance on my grave. I'm determined to outlast it if it takes 50 years.Delete
Re: First Lady Liddy Dole. I probably won't get to take a picture of her either, so I'll start learning to draw her.
Like we're gonna believe that story. It's all an Obamacoverup!ReplyDelete
The gum is Muslim!Delete

You're a modern-day Abe Zapruder. :)ReplyDelete
Well, sure, but only in the sense that I own a women's clothing company in Dallas.Delete
Tell that to those Gummint agents...Delete
Your simulation of Michelle Obama is the most thought provoking celebrigum post to date! Your efforts have not gone unnoticed by your MA admirers.ReplyDelete
