Cigar Guy continues to show up randomly, less and less amusingly


Cigar Guy is back (technically, he never really left), milking his 15 minutes like a prize Guernsey.

Today, 30-year-old Rupesh Shingadia hit "Today" in what surely must be Minute 14:59.99 of his run to discuss his utterly random appearance in one of the best sports photos ever and to bring the hilarious hijinx by cropping up all over the show's set.

In case you've been living under a cyberrock, Shingadia's pic was snapped at Ryder Cup play in Wales earlier this month; his wig, false mustache (no!) and ceegar were an early Halloween costumea tribute to Spanish golfer Miguel Angel Jiminez. He's been photoshopped into photos all over the internet. Even he admits it's a little he and his whack-a-mole meme pops up yet again.
