Been Mistaken for a Celebrity?

Recommended Posts

Hi all. We've gotten some interesting mileage out of the thread about meeting celebrities. Now let me pose the question in reverse. Have you ever been mistaken for a celebrity?

As for me. I once was mistaken for a god. Up in northern Japan, a friend and I were walking some back roads through a farming district where Caucasians were rarely seen. Suddenly, a gaggle of very young schoolboys came running up to us almost out of their minds with excitement. My very rotund friend and I (quite bald with thick glasses) had been mistaken for two of the seven lucky gods--the god of prosperity and the god of knowledge. The knowledge god is specially dear to the kids as a patron of getting good grades. So these kids wanted to pat Walt's belly for good luck and rub my head for good grades. All in all, it was a delightful moment.
