    Default I Got Serena Williams And Venus Williams Autograph

    Hey everybody. Yesterday I went to Dunkin' Donuts and by my surprise, I saw two U.S. tennis players, Serena Williams and her sister Venus Williams buying their coffee. I asked them for an autograph and both of them signed their autograph. I'm so happy. http://imgur.com/gallery/UTEPa9D

    Not sure what time zone you're in and when/what day you posted this, but is this an April Fool's Day joke? Because you have to be honest if it is when asked.

    No it's not an April Fool's Day joke.

    How dare you impugn the integrity of his autograph collection??? Every year I look forward to see who he met this time!

    Yes it is. You've done this pretty much ever year you've been on these forums. At least change the trick.

    Beyond being a neat story, I appreciate this in that I had forgotten about April Fool's Day and now am reminded.

    One of these days, he's going to come in with an authentic autograph, and it will look identical to his handwriting.

    Congratulations, you managed to pick two of the few celebrities I would actually like to have an autograph by.

    I will be envious as soon as 1. April is over and it hasn't been revealed as joke.

    Happy April Fool's Day to you too, Bartmanhomer.

    I don't think anyone would want those pancakes even if you paid them to eat them.

    After noon. Which isn't yet apparently in the timezone of GitP (going by the previous posts, now it's gone).

    I was 10 and my grandmother took me downtown Chicago. She freaked out when I ran into a crowd. Mr. T was signing autographs. I wish I had that poster.

    Who knew that Peyton Manning, LeBron James, Aaron Judge AND the Williams sisters all had the same handwriting? And that they all write their full name (and nothing else) for their signature?

    Cool, OP!

    I grew up on tennis, my dad was a professional (and played in Wimbledon once). I was really good as a kid but lost interest around highschool in florida.

    Both my parents dislike Serena Williams (not so much Venus), they think shes the greatest female tennis player of all time, but that shes a pretty awful person.

    Im curious how your experience was with her. Ive seen her be pretty nasty on the court, but im not sure thats a fair judge of character as those can be high stress situations.

    BMH, you have got to get more material.
    Whether loved or hated, all characters die. A minority opinion holds that the righteous ones are really just Put on a Bus until the head writer's son gets back from his coffee break.

    That was true the second time he used this, but now we've transcended the original joke into the much funnier meta-joke.

    That's because it is. He's done this three years in a row.
