"A perfectly silly, genius idea" -- David Letterman

Caroline Kennedy




It may seem odd that CelebriGum is only just now posting this photo of Caroline Kennedy taken in May 2011.

Rest assured, it's pure coincidence that the photo is appearing the same week that the Kennedy Center named Dave Letterman as one of its 2012 honorees.  There was absolutely no quid pro quo.

Did the Kennedy Center quietly suggest that Mr. Letterman's chances would be improved if Ms. Kennedy were to be featured on the world's top celebrity and old gum photo site?  Of course not!  What kind of hardened cynic could even imagine such a absurd scenario?


There's also no truth to the outlandish rumor that I had to include this second photo in order to get Mr. Letterman a $10 credit at the Kennedy Center snack bar.

  1. Well, I suppose, all in service for a good cause: making the boss look good. What better reward for your creative efforts? Have never watched this awards ceremony, that probably won't be changing this year. But I do hope that in his acceptance speech, your honoree mentions the pivotal role that you and the gum played in getting him this coveted recognition. And I also hope he brings you back a souvenir from the event, perhaps some D.C. gum, breath mints, or whatever.

    1. Jan, you've completely misunderstood! There was no quid pro quo!

      Though I certainly expect Dave to mention CelebriGum on the big night.

    2. Strangely, there is no "acceptance speech". The honorees just sit up in the balcony and wave to those who appear on stage in tribute.

      Not entirely unlike the way CG looks down upon the celebs parading below.

    3. Well, then I hope Dave will just stand up in the balcony and start loudly declaiming until security escorts him out.

    1. I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a wad of old gum on the moon and returning it safely to the earth.
