Okay, so, I’m not taking this all too seriously. After all, I got the link from the Drudge Report (guilty pleasure) AND the link goes to a National Enquirer story. But still! Click away, this is kind of funny. Evidently Robin Williams wants a lil of that Mel Gibson scandal heat – he has supposedly checked his tired antics into rehab for alcoholism. Here’s the thing that made me harf out loud:
Williams told a souce that he hatched a plan to buy booze only at liquor stores owned by Asians, figuring he wouldn’t be recognized. He was wrong.
The first time he went into an Asian-owned liquor store, the proprietor said: “Robin Williams, how are you? You buy liquor?”
God! They rerun Mrs. Doubtfire one thousand times a day on cheap cable channels all over this small planet! You think because we have smaw eyes that we can’t see your face on television on awards ceremonies and career retrospectives!?
This is mostly funny and probably isn’t true anyway. Still someone out there who made this stuff up thought Asian people wouldn’t recognize Robin Williams. The end.
