Ed's Celebrity Encounters...of the Ed Kind

click for Spoof 'Trek Love'

In Star Trek IV, Captain Kirk (William Shatner) was asked if he came from outer space. Kirk replied, "No, I come from Iowa; I only work in outer space."

A 'close encounter' with Crazy Ed can be as unreal.

Ask "Crazy Ed" and he will explain, "Yes, I'm really HIM (Crazy Ed), I'm really Crazy; & they let me out for today to clean my padded cell!" On 1st meeting Crazy Ed (in person), you will laugh and wonder what asylum let Ed free in present day reality...or a national comic convention.   
    The 2nd encounter often creates a loyal repeat customer. With a 3rd encounter or more--you become a lasting friend who regularly visits Ed's booth, or stays in touch with Ed by email or phone, year-round.

Ed looked up to find the 'N Sync entourage at his booth. Justin Timberlake was there (without Britney Spears). Joey Fatone bought a Crazy Ed Archive Superman 11.
