World Famous Comedian Visits Peg-o-Leg’s Blog!

I don’t want to brag, but I’m so excited I couldn’t keep this to myself.  Although we bloggers toil in the WordPress vineyards primarily for personal satisfaction, a little recognition never comes amiss.  In fact, the prayer we dare not utter is our secret, fervent wish that we will get noticed by the “right” people, and that this will lead to fame and fortune.

Of course, I’ve had my brushes with fame before.

When I first started this blog it was with the intention of getting noticed by Oprah.  I wanted her to hire me as a writer.  That never actually happened, so maybe I can’t count it as a “brush” with fame.  Maybe more like shooting an arrow at the elusive fame target, only to have it crash impotently to the ground; total fail.

There was that time I wrote about how I was the secret love child of Dave Barry and Erma Bombeck.   I sent an email link to Dave, one of my favorite humor writers, and he actually responded.  No kidding!  What a great guy.  I wish I had half of his talent.

But just the other day I had a real brush (more of a head-on collision) with fame.  One of my very favorite comedians stopped by this blog.  I’m not sure how he heard of me, but he read my stuff and really liked it.  He was kind enough to leave a comment.  I’m so stoked!

He used an alias, but I recognized his “voice” and I know you will too.  Here’s what he said.

“Hello all, here every one is sharing these knowledge, so it’s pleasant to read this blog, and I used to pay a quick visit this webpage all the time.”

It said the comment came from someone named Come Play With My Dirty Pillows.  What an alias – ha ha! But that comment is obviously the work of one of the Czech Brothers.

Only thing is, I wonder how Steve’s comment ended up in my spam folder?

  1. Very funny. I hate to take the wind out of your sails, but I think he visited my blog, too and I’m not half as funny as you!

    If that comment got put in your Spam Folder, just imagine how many other famous people have left comments on your blog but you didn’t get to see them because the Spam Filter sent them packing before you even saw them!

    I’m not surprised in the slightest. You’re a Recommended Humor Blogger! You have the dazzling badge to prove it. Steve’s no slouch. Do you need someone to watch your peep store while you’re at the 2013 Bloggy’s?

      That IS a very handsome Recommended Humor Blogger badge. Someone with mad, mad computering skillz must have designed it.

      Except now that I’ve put it up I’m paranoid that I’m not on the list anymore. I keep obsessively checking and most of the time I don’t see me. 😦 Then I go back the next day and there I am and all is right with the world.

      Dave Barry (one of my favorite humor writers) really did send me an email after I wrote a post about him. As to Steve Martin commenting, well, it COULD have been him…right?

  28. I’ve been on this huge re-discovering Steve Martin’s catalogue kick (he’s one of my absolute all-time favorite entertainers), and seeing your post in the reader, my immediate thought was, “I’m done. If Steve Martin visited someone’s blog that isn’t me, I quit.”

    It was not a mature moment.

      Come on in off that ledge, B-man. It is possible that my brush with Excuuuuuse Me, banjo-playing hilarity was all in my mind.

      But if we’re talking Steve Martin love, check out the “about me” line on my avatar. Somebody recognized that obscure reference just this week for the first time ever.

      If SM DOES show up on YOUR blog and not mine, let me know so I can turn the oven on…need to warm it up before I stick my head in it.

    Apparently, after you posted a spam comment on your blog, my WP reader immediately sent your entire blog to my spam folder. That was the only explanation I could think of for why your blog stopped showing up in my reader. Congratulations on getting noticed by Steve. I’ve heard he’s been leaving a lot of comments all over WordPress. Do you think he’s promoting his new movie?
