The man you see above is the Legend of North Hollywood High, Ace, a.k.a. Adam “Lakers” Carolla. He was in town to sign copies of his latest memoir cum tragedy, Not Taco Bell Material, at the 5th Avenue Barnes & Noble and host a live podcast of the Adam Carolla Show this Friday at Caroline’s.
Although he isn’t-as two giddy Eastern European men who approached me while in line discovered to their disappointment-Jimmy Kimmel, he is one of the most entertaining, insightful broadcasters around. And we love him, mostly because he tells the truth, no matter how offensive it might seem to your Rachel Maddow-watching, Nation-reading asshat of a friend.
Just remember: hate facts are, after all, still facts.
