There is nothing like taking a picture with an actual celebrity, sidling up to the famous as if you went back years. Well, there is something similar, because you could always take a photo with someone who isn't famous.

I remember walking up one aisle in Whole Foods some time ago and noticing Fred Ward, an actor whom only a certain subsection of movie nerd might appreciate.

The star of Tremors, Remo Williams and Summer Catch (don't judge, because that movie has a certain adorable stupidity) was picking out food right before me. Or was he?

The one thing I didn't do was go up and greet this B-list celebrity without the aid of confidence that Ward was indeed shopping in front of me.

Oh, but some people don't quibble with such worries, because they go and snap photos, ask for autographs and fawn away, even though the target of their affection might not be an actual celebrity.

Here is a brief breakdown of the hilarity that ensues when people don't stop to think, Hey, maybe that's not Roger Federer.
