Lots of Scotts

I've promised you "lots" of Scotts.  I know I can provide at least two.  Maybe three, if we're lucky.

From "Parks and Recreation," Adam Scott!

From ESPN, Scott Van Pelt!

So far we've got a first name Scott and a last name Scott.  What would really put this Gimmick Month entry over the top would be a middle name Scott.

Let me fire up the CelebriGum Reality Changer, a gadget of my own invention which, in theory, temporarily rearranges time and space to snap a gum photo of a hard-to-get celebrity… I'm typing in a name… the fabric of the universe is being rewoven… here comes the photo…

Ladies and gentlemen, the late author F. Scott Fitzgerald!

Crap.  So close.

    Try adjusting the f-stop...

    1. Nice. There's actually a photographer who goes by the name f-stop Fitzgerald. There's also a pub in Salem, Oregon by that name, apparently.

      Yes! I first became aware of the photographer f-stop Fitzgerald through his work with the Dead Kennedys. (Never heard of the pub, though.)
      And now, you've given us "DeadCelebriGum."

    3. Small world. That reminds me, I need to reply to an e-mail from Jello Biafra. No joke. I know him through record collecting. Thanks for the memory jog!

      I'm here to help, Steve. :)
      (Also, I'm here to be ENVIOUS.)
      I love Jello!

    2. I'm a Charmin man, myself.
