Zuckerberg and the Paps

Now I really have to give props to Facebook Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, because he’s made it onto one of my favorite Web sites: TMZ.com

The AOL-owned celebrity dishfest–which covers the antics of Britney Spears with as much intensity as if it were the crisis in Iraq–had a video post on him and his longtime girlfriend Priscilla Chan, who are now apparently paparazzi-worthy.

The pair were coming out of a Los Angeles restaurant and a cameraman pretended to be from a show called “Cheaters,” which made Zuckerberg suddenly nervous, although he was still laughing.

And, before you could say Paris Hilton, he made a smooth escape into a waiting car like a celebrity pro, dignity intact.
