This is a weekly series featuring friends who have met celebrities.
My buddy Chazz Moretti might argue that Amy Joe Hill sees a big celebrity every day. This might be true, seeing as Chazz and Amy are a couple, but for the purpose of this "Friendly Encounter, I am going to feature Amy with an even bigger celebrity.
Even Chazz cannot deny that Bugs Bunny is a slightly bigger celebrity, even if Bugs is animated. Of course, Chazz is well-renowned for his career in wrestling and his general media presence, but Bugs has been around a lot longer and is world famous.
There is no shame in finishing behind Bugs in celebdom. Aside from his cartoons and movies, Bugs can often be seen at Six Flags, as was the case when Amy met him and got the picture below.
This whole things gives me an idea. Why can't Chazz also be a star at an amusement park? Would it be ChazzLand? Moretti Place? I'm just having a blast picturing a big Chazz character walking around, posing for pictures with all of his adoring fans. This could be big!
I guess the real winner is Amy though. Not only did she get to meet Bugs, she gets to be with Chazz every day. Okay, seriously, we all know Chazz is the real winner in that scenario. Still, to keep peace, I will end by saying they are both lucky to have found each other and I am lucky to be friends with both.
