In past years, the arrival of Bastille Day has taken me back to my one brief visit to Paris during an unscheduled airport layover.
Not any more.
Now my mind’s eye is full of images of Craig Ferguson, Geoff the Robot and Secretariat when they took the Late Late Show to the City of Love last year. Cavorting beneath the Arc de Triomphe. Interviewing celebrity pals around a teetering desk on the Eiffel Tower green. Performing amid a bevy of dancing girls on the legendary Moulin Rouge stage.
Yep, if anyone knows how to celebrate La Fête Nationale…
It’s Craigy Ferg.

If you watch Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson with any regularity — and you know I certainly do — you’ve no doubt noticed…
The fruit basket
It’s Craig’s new way to bid guests good-bye. Instead of an awkward pause or a big cash prize or a harmonica duet, guests are sent on their way with the exotic fruit of their choice.
After Craig makes an innuendo or two.
Well, today I discovered a new fruit that absolutely needs to be added to that basket. Heck, you could fill the whole thing with ‘em — they are that perfect for Craig’s sense of humor.
Meet the rambutan.
It grows in Southeast Asia, looks like a cousin of the Audrey II in Little Shop of Horrors, and is reportedly sweet and sour and slightly grape-like and gummy to the taste.
But I’m pretty sure Craig would just be excited that they look like little hair balls.
Creepy alien-looking hairy balls.

Look who’s on the cover of Entertainment Weekly?
It’s quite a coup for the good doctor, who I am embarrassed to say I had never heard of until Craig Ferguson schooled me during episodes of Late Late Show. I now know what a TARDIS is and am proud to have a dog named after a central character…
For now, anyway (sniff).
Enjoy ‘officially’ taking over the USA, Dr. Who. We who already follow you, salute you.
