Mr. Ferrell goes to Washington

(CNN) - Comedian Will Ferrell popped into the briefing room on Friday afternoon while on a tour of the White House with press secretary Jay Carney. Ferrell is in Washington D.C. to receive the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor on Sunday at the Kennedy Center.

While in the briefing room, Ferrell stood behind the podium and took a picture with Carney and said jokingly, “Jay, why are you forcing me to take a picture? This is all for your benefit.”

    It would have been a hoot to see him do one of his characters, like Little Bush.

    Would have been a bigger 'hoot' for him to do something that showed talent. Another pathetic excuse of an 'entertainer' which explains why when hollywood wants talent they turn to imports.
