Not the tip of it, but I can definitely touch the side of the joint. I little practice and I'm sure I could manage.

I knew a guy in high school who could touch the bottom of a slurpee cup with his tongue...he was popular with the ladies...

Don't forget the screenplay he wrote for "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls".

"Z-man! You're a chick!" A fun account by Ebert himself:

Roger Ebert wrote the original script for the Sex Pistol's movie "Great Rock'n'Roll Swindle". The script was entitled "Who Killed Bambie?"

I tried to lick my elbow, and was successful, but that's because I have a Gene Simmons length tongue.

In every Coen Brothers film there is a sound of a hubcap rolling down the street.

Their picture editor, Roderick Jaynes, is actually Joel Coen, editing under a pseudonym. He's been nominated for an oscar!

Robert DeNiro wrote the final draft of Raging Bull, but didn't want a credit. The script is initialed RDN at the bottom of every page.

Mel Brooks produced the Elephant Man, but kept his name off all the posters to prevent people from thinking its a comedy.

The govt regulations remind me of the label on Bonny Doon's flagship red wine Le Cigar Volant.
Apparently in the 50's the French were afraid spaceships might land and destroy the vineyards. They passed a law against them landing. It must work, nobody has reported any landings. The label on the wine bottle features a flying cigar casting a ray downward.

***"If the US government has no knowledge of aliens, then why does Title 14, Section 1211 of the Code of Federal Regulations, implemented on July 16, 1969, make it illegal for U.S. citizens to have any contact with extraterrestrials or their vehicles?"

"Although the moon was presumed to be lifeless, we couldn't rule out the possibility that bringing back equipment and samples from the lunar surface might also introduce hitherto unknown microorganisms or germs into our environment, potentially triggering a scenario like the one described by Michael Crichton's 1969 novel The Andromeda Strain, in which a sample-gathering satellite returns to Earth bearing deadly pathogens from space, touching off a plague that threatens to kill nearly everyone exposed to it."

"To prepare for this eventuality, on the same day that Apollo 11 was launched from Kennedy Space Center, the United States adopted Title 14, Section 1211 of the Code of Federal Regulations, since known as the "Extra-Terrestrial Exposure Law." The purpose of Title 14, Section 1211 of the CFR was not to "make it illegal for U.S. citizens to have any contact with extraterrestrials or their vehicles"; the law allowed the government to prevent the possibility of biological contamination from pathogens carried to Earth by men and objects returning from space by enforcing a quarantine on any people, plant or animal life, or other material that had "touched directly or come within the atmospheric envelope of any other celestial body.""
