Isn't Dick Van Dyke adorable?! He's old and cuddly and belts out a wicked cockney accent. He's a man from the age before the paparazzi made every celebrities life a misery and he can still see the funny flattering side of some feral stranger shoving a camera in your face as you try to go about your daily chores.
He was "papped" coming out of a Supermarket last week and he wrote a letter to the local newspaper thanking them for experience:-
Monday morning as I was leaving the supermarket with my Raisin Bran and prunes, out of the corner of my eye, I caught the flash of a camera. Sure enough, it was paparazzi. Or maybe paparazzo, it was just the one guy. I suppose Monday is a slow day for celebrity watching. But still, he knew me! He saw beyond the white hair, the wrinkles and the pot belly. He saw a celebrity under there! I have to admit I was flattered by the attention. Did me a lot of good.
However, out of respect for my fellow celebrities, I decked him anyway.
Dick Van Dyke"
Go on Dick!
