I saw Eddie Vedder at a grocery store in Los Angeles yesterday. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything.

He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?”

I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying.

The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.

When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any electrical infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.

In England we called milky ways Mars bars.

Yes, US Mars bar is basically Snickers with almonds, while UK/European Milky Way is similar to Three Musketeers from the US.

Had no idea that Ed was such a huge fan.

Milky Ways is a good measurement for hand size/capacity.

I'm probably a 12 MWs guy myself. Smallish and boney.

My father had huge hands, he was probably 22 MWs at least.

That's what Ed said when he first ordered his favorite Milky Way when abroad.
