Look Closely: Mel Brooks' Unique Hollywood Walk of Fame Handprint
It's a rite of passage for any star of entertainment to get a spot on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The sidewalks of Tinseltown are covered with the stars, along with the imprints of their hands and feet. Just yesterday, American comedy icon Mel Brooks (writer and director of Spaceballs, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein and more) was given that very honor, and the master of laughter wasn't going to let this opportunity for what will be a more permanent joke just slip away. The comedy legend, who is actually fairly active on Twitter despite his oage, posted a picture of his imprint after he was done. Notice anything weird?
Here's the image Mel Brooks posted on his Twitter, along with some other photos from BuzzFeed:

And here is Brooks appearing on "Conan" shortly after, with his special ceremony hand intact:
That's just the perfect way for a funnyman like Brooks to stand out. The funny things is, some who don't read about the ceremony and this prank may never even notice the difference whilst touring the sidewalk in front of the landmark Chinese Theatre. Or if they do, they might actually think that Brooks had six fingers and they just never noticed. It's subtle but also outrageous, because that's going to be there forever. Cool?
