I met Eddy Maguire once.
In Coburg at a grip and grin type affair at the Drive-In. His tawdry radio show was playing 'host' to a free movie screening but all they seemed to do was to demonstrate how to be REAL bigots. After consistently insulting the crowd by assuming we were all escapees from Pentridge and poking fun at us for our marked lower socio-economic standing and just denigrating the whole area in general he went on to walk amongst the scum bags, cheering the poor sods up with a touch of his hand and a closer look at his face.
His cheek however, was covered in dried pasta sauce. I laughed, not just at the blemish upon his clean flesh but at the fact that for the entire loathsome time we endured his presence none of his faithful entourage had bothered to tell him to lose the Dolmio grin.
