Have you ever...?

Have you ever had moms roll in with their SUV to hand their kid a camera to take a picture with ZD at the shopping plaza on a Saturday Night?

Have you ever had hundreds of people send you emails telling you are are the "best ever" or "genius" for the things you say and do off the top of your head with no preparation?

Have you ever walked into your local neighorhood bar and have the crowd jump up out of their seats and burst out into cheers? (Cheers, not BOOS, Antonio!)

Have you ever had the elderly, a pastor, city workers and all kinds of diverse general members of the public stop dead in their tracks when they see you walking down the street to tell you, "how much they admire your efforts?"

Have you ever had Academy, Grammy and Emmy Award winners run up to you and tell you how amazing you are and gaze at you with HUGE smiles on their faces?

Have you ever had an LAUSD/College teacher tell you she shows your videos to her class to teach about politics and first amendment.

Have you ever had a family (parents with their kids) stop you and have the dad say, "Thanks, you're the only TV show we can all agree on."

Have you ever had different Los Angeles City Councilmembers call you things like "prophet" or "genius?" (Don't blame me, I didn't say it, THEY DID!)

Have you ever had Anthony Robbins bow down to you on stage in front of thousands of people during a national theatrical broadcast?

Have you ever had a couple tell you "he just proposed" as you walk off the stage after singing a song at karaoke?

Have you ever had a U.S. Veteran of the War in Iraq from out of the State call you on the phone to tell you how much they have been laughing and enjoying watching each and every Zuma Dogg YouTube video as he is recovering at home?

Have you ever had someone who lost a relative in the 9/11 tragedy ask if they could give you a hug because they were so depressed they couldn't carry on, and they pasted my show on TV and it was the first time it made them laugh since their loss.

Have you ever had thousands of people tell you that you make them so happy and feel so good and that there has never been anyone or anything like you ever?

Whatever it is that generates that type of feedback...DO NOT PUT OUT THAT KIND OF ENERGY THAT GENERATES THAT TYPE OF FEEDBACK...YOU WILL END UP BROKE AND HOMELESS AND IN BIG, BIG TROUBLE.

Have you ever been homeless for a year then kicked back out on the street one week after you were told you could stay there through September?
