There are two kinds of famous: hey-it's-that-dude-from-TV famous and I-get-anything-I-want-hand-delivered-to-me-for-free famous. The Situation, the Jersey Shore star who became famous for his abs and his antics, falls into the former camp. The reality star reportedly tried to cut in line at a Las Vegas Apple store on Sunday and got thrown out. Considering that even Steve Wozniak was willing to wait politely in line for his turn to purchase the gadget, Sitch looked even lamer than usual. He probably went home and consoled himself by going home and sleeping on a giant pile of money and discarded phone numbers. [MSNBC]
