Would you like some Hamm with your lunch?

Jon HammHave you ever had a fantasy in which you had lunch with your favorite television celebrity? Well, if you have the cash on hand, now's your chance. Celebrity lunches up for auction include Jon Hamm, Nathan Fillion and Kevin Smith, among others (Patrick Duffy? He's still around?). All proceeds benefit the Adrienne Shelly Foundation for female filmmakers.

Honestly, if you did participate in the auction and win one of the lunches, what would you say to the person? I've been tongue-tied in front of celebrities before, when I was much younger. Would you simply ask how they're doing? Would you try to promote that script you've been working on for year? Would you have to buy the lunch, or would the celebrity pay?

I also find it interesting that a charity to benefit women in film-making only has relative few female celebrities involved (there is only one on the given list). You'd think more female stars would be happy to donate their time. Or maybe it's simply that the male stars are a better sell (particularly Patrick Duffy).

Only if Jon Hamm did the whole lunch as Don Draper, and he can't break character the entire time from meeting to departure.

Don't mock Patrick Duffy. Weep for the winner of the lunch with David Schwimmer.

I would pay large amounts of money to have lunch with David Schwimmer if he did the whole thing as his Greenzo character from 30 Rock, complete with costume.

Can you fire the wind, Jack? Can you fire a hurricane???
