    as quoted by slim... article here
    If you're a fan of Bill Murray, you're going to love this story. One of our users named Mike (pictured above) is a very lucky man. I was sent these photo after he and his friends went out to have a few drinks at their local Karaoke bar, Karaoke One 7 in NYC. Shortly after their arrival, Mike noticed that a couple women had just walked into the place with a man that looked a lot like… Bill Murray?! The crew went out to confirm that the man, was in fact, Bill Murray himself. Mike's friend even mustered the courage to invite Bill to chill in their room, but they just laughed it off. There's no way that was going to happen. I'll let Mike take it from here: "About 15 minutes later we get a knock on the door... IT'S BILL F@#KING MURRAY! We were all shocked of course but at that point we were already pretty trashed so the party just kept going. He was super nice and they all fit right in. His girl was really cute, and as far as i remember, from Amsterdam. She sang a bunch of random French songs! At some point he bought us all a round of some weird green drink and wouldn't tell us what it was. I later found out it was Chartreuse some French liqueur made by monks. Apparently you are supposed to sip it ... like an idiot I just shot it down. The high point was when Bill and I sang a duet of an Elvis song called, "Marie's the Name." Random I know, but so was the night. We were all drinking and dancing and screaming our asses off. We tried not to make him feel uncomfortable though of course later we all joked about picking the Ghostbusters theme. Amazingly, they stuck around the entire night, about 4 hours. As you can imagine it was all pretty surreal. Something I will never ever forget…Viva Bill Murray!"

    I'd watch his sex tape.

    No joke.

    He tried to pick up my sister and her friend while they were at a bar in Spain.

    Bill Murray is The Man. Everything I've ever read about him indicates that he does exactly what he wants to do and for the entertainment of only one person - himself. The most recent article I read said that nobody has his phone number. He's got an 800 number for people to leave messages and if he wants to talk to them, he calls them back. What a great way to be able to live your life.

    There's an outake at the end of Zombieland where BM is supposed to be dead and Woody Harrelson is supposed to quote the "Au Revoir, Gophere" line from Caddyshack. He keeps muffing it and BM finally gives it to him word for word while staying completely in character, i.e., lying there dead - perfect voice, slack lower lip, instant Carl The Groundskeeper.
