Michael Fassbender


Very glad to have gotten this photo of Michael Fassbender, star of last year's "Shame" and the current blockbuster "Prometheus."



Thanks to the odd resemblance, I can re-use the photo in a future post in which I'll claim it's Syrian tyrant Bashar al-Assad.  

It may be my only chance of getting al-Assad on CelebriGum, since it's looking less and less likely that we'll have him on the Late Show.

  1. You never know. Isn't Dave's Fatwa still technically in effect?

    1. I don't think so. If you don't go down to the DMV and renew it every six months, it expires.

    2. Mine is set to auto-renew online.

  2. This post feels like a Tuesday's post. I won't say if that's good or bad, it's just what it is.

    2. I think that was an early "Mamas and the Papas" track.

  3. Who's the big guy next to Michael? Maybe you can misidentify him as a celebrity in the future too.

    1. Yes, but I have to be careful, because I see Jimmy every day.

      But I'm open to suggestions. Maybe he'd like to be confused with George Clooney.

    2. I think he looks like a young Carroll O'connor.

    3. I think he looks like an old Carol Burnett.

  4. If it got around that Bashar al-Assad was coming to the Late Show, well, best to take precautions against a potential drone strike. And of course, just this mention may have triggered surveillance. It is an election year, you know. Take care ...

    1. All good points, but as I say, very doubtful that al-Assad will come by for a guest segment. We can't even get Kim Jong un. His people keep saying he's available for comedy, then when we pitch ideas, he's not available after all. I think it's a low-grade attempt to undermine the U.S.

    2. Interesting story: His father, Kim Jong Il, used to do vaudeville with Fidel Castro.

  5. I wish I was important enough to have "people".

    Trust me. Kim Jong un is a goldmine of comedy... ;)

    "Prometheus" is the perfect title, considering the current state of my liver... :(
