If I were famous, I wouldn't let ever let fans take photos with me. In the social media age, you know they'll end up all over the place, and the worse you look the more people will share the photo. This is what crossed my mind while looking at Facebook the other day. You see, one thing that I know I'm really bad at is recognizing celebrities. On the street, in restaurants, or on network TV--I can't pick them out anywhere. The singular exception is Facebook. Because the only time anyone will ever post a really, really terrible photo of themselves is when they're standing next to a famous person. Standing next to someone famous trumps looking like an idiot, and it's not like you're going to work up the nerve to ask the cast of Saved by the Bell for a second group photo (actually, I would recognize those guys anywhere).
