How do you know you’ve made it in New York? Is it headlining a show on Broadway? Having a sandwich named after you at Carnegie Deli? One benchmark is certainly having a wax figure of yourself put on display at Madame Tussaud‘s, which is what happened to Carmelo Anthony on Tuesday:
I love, love, love, that ‘Melo took the opportunity to mess with people visiting his exhibit at the museum. Hand to god, if I ever had a wax statue made of myself on display anywhere, I would do this to people ALL THE TIME. I wouldn’t just do it at the opening, I’d do it when things were slow at work or if an appointment were in the neighborhood, or you know, whenever I had a free minute, and I would never, ever get tired of it.
Congrats Carmelo on the honor. It’s no jersey made of Fruit Roll Ups, but it’s close.
