'AFV' Visionary Gets Walk of Fame Star For Groundbreaking Work In Kicked-In-The-Balls Programming


In just moments, TV producing legend Vin di Bona, who built his America's Funniest Home Videos empire upon thousands of hours of viewer-submitted footage of frail grandmothers tumbling from porch swings and fortuitously camcorded incidents of unexpected testicle trauma, will receive a star on Hollywood Blvd.'s Walk of Fame.

Even though current AFV host Tom Bergeron (whose tribute ad in today's Var was the one we felt most touchingly evoked his boss's contributions to television) seems like a logical choice for the job, we hope that it's longtime host Bob Saget who's been secretly tapped to complete the event by ceremonially striking Di Bona in the genitals with an oversized foam wiffle-ball bat as his slab of Hollywood immortality is laid into the sidewalk.
