Los Angeles 2030:

Mike: Hi, uhh…is this the fame office?

Attendant: Yes, is there something I can help you with today sir?

Mike: Well, yeah, I'd like to use my fifteen minutes of fame now.

Attendant: Alright sir, let's get your file up. What's your name?

Mike: Michael O'Brien.

Attendant: Okay Michael, let me just get this up here. Oh dear…

Mike: What is it?

Attendant: Well Michael, I'm sorry to have to be the one who has to tell you this, but the majority of your fifteen minutes have already been used up.

Mike: What?! How?

Attendant: Well sir, it looks like you parents posted a video on YouTube of you laughing as a baby, and well, it was quite popular…

Mike: What? There's no way that could use up the majority of my fame!

Attendant: Sir, it received over fifty million views…

Mike: You've got to be kidding me! Well how much fame do I have left?

Attendant: Approximately 40 seconds…

Mike: This is just unbelievable! I didn't even get to enjoy it!

Attendant: I'm sorry sir, there's nothing I can do about it. However, you do have some time left, at least.

Mike: True.  Maybe I can date a famous girl or something.  Maybe, like, get a cup of cofffee spilled on me by some actor or something?  Maybe I'll…

Attendant: Ooh, sorry, I have to stop you.  Time's up.  You've spent the remainder of your time being a character in an online article.

Mike: What?  That's not being famous!

Attendant: It's relative.
