    Looks like the classic Phil Donahue pose after asking a question to a member of the audience. So. let’s go with a Phil Donahue quote for the caption that I believe is fitting:

    “At first, I thoroughly enjoyed being famous.”

    A couple others from Donahue:

    “Marlo taught me things I thought I knew.”

    or

    “I could never understand how we could put 120,000 Japanese behind a fence in World War II. I remember being bewildered about that (when I was over there fighting)” … patenthetical statement added by me of course.

    So I jump ship in Hong Kong and I make my way over to Tibet, and I get on as a looper at a course over in the Himalayas.

    A looper, you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock. So, I tell them I’m a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald… striking. So, I’m on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one - big hitter, the Lama - long, into a ten-thousand foot crevasse, right at the base of this glacier. Do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga… gunga, gunga-lagunga. So we finish the eighteenth and he’s gonna stiff me. And I say, “Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know.” And he says, “Oh, uh, there won’t be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness.”

    So I got that goin’ for me, which is nice.
