Ty Burrell


"Good afternoon, CelebriGum, Steve speaking, can I help you?"

"Hi Steve, this is Ty Burrell.  Do you have a moment to chat?"

"Not really.  I'm busy taking pictures.  I just got you getting out of the car with the phone up to your ear.  What do you need, Ty?"

"I know it's awfully short notice, but I'd love a slightly blurry, grainy shot of me crossing behind the town car to step onto the sidewalk, in addition to the standard shot of posing by the door for the paparazzi.  Is there any way...?"

"I'll see what I can do, Ty.  Gotta go."



CelebriGum comes through in the clutch!  You're welcome, Ty!

From now on, don't call me when I'm working.

    How did you ever transcribe, and photograph at the same time? I tell you how, MAGIC!

    1. I wrote down what I recalled shortly afterward, then checked it against what Ty remembered of the conversation. Between the two of us, I think we got it pretty darn close.

      That explains it. By the way, nice job getting a cone in each photo.

    3. Oh yes. I pay close attention to the focus group data.

    He's called "the late" Jim Croce because he's never on Ty...

    This has been The Toast in the Machine channeling Steve channeling The Toast in the Machine channeling Jim Croce. We'll be here all week!

    2. Why not just come back in a cab, like everyone else?

    3. From what I've seen on CelebriGum, everyone else comes back in a limo.
