Oops, we got the wrong guy

AP reports on a school in Utah that booked Jon Stewart for a show, advertised that fact, sold tickets, and then realised that they'd booked not Jon Stewart the comedian but "Jon A. Stewart, a former motivational speaker, businessman and part-time professional wrestler from Chicago."

Immense joy. I have also heard a similar story involving Bishan Singh Bedi and the genial sports journalist Harpal Singh Bedi, but as that might well be apocryphal, I won't repeat it here. But, tee hee, it makes me smile.
