Comedian Jim Norton Takes ‘Awkward Photos With Celebrities’ To A New Level Thanks To Captions

By 01.18.12

“Paula Patton ruining my photo with Simon Pegg.”

Comedian Jim Norton saw the photos going around of Todd Max: Ultimate Awkward Celebrity Photo Guy and realized

“I take photos with almost every celebrity I meet. And I look like an @sshole in almost every one. So why do I continue to do it? Because I’m f*cking stupid.”

So not to be outdone by some rando taking the internet by storm with awkward celebrity photos, yesterday Norton tweeted:

“Someone posted their celebrity pics, so I stole the idea and posted mine. My fat face ruins almost every one. PART 1

And later:

PART 2 from my F*cking-Up-Celebrity-Photos-With-My-Idiotic-Face collection.”

The photos themselves aren’t nearly as intriguing as the ones that went viral yesterday. You know, since Norton is a quasi-celebrity himself and no one this side of me in middle school is matching Todd’s penchant for awkward photos. BUT. Norton does provide hilarious self-deprecating captions to each of his, so I put the “F*cking-Up-Celebrity-Photos-With-My-Idiotic-Face” match at a draw.

Norton’s collection is ginormous (seriously, dude wasn’t joking about his compulsion) and stupid Imgur won’t let me copy and paste his captions, so I’ve just included my fifteen favorite — pretty much the ones where he makes fun of how short or weird looking he is — here. Enjoy. And if the last one doesn’t invoke at the very least an audible giggle we can’t be friends.
