    Morgan Freeman
    Oprah Winfrey
    Condoleeza Rice
    Colin Powell

    I could’ve named a few singers/rappers, too…but I didn’t. Are we talking world-famous? U.S. famous? Aw, forget it.

  7. The Pink Scooter Guy – good call. He’s been in all the papers!
    His identity remains a compelling mystery…I hear he’s sexy. But the pink scooter is sexier.
