Feb. 13 (UPI) -- Will Ferrell took his brand of comedy from the silver screen to live performance art on Tuesday, donning the red blazer of a Staples Center security worker and escorting the legendary Shaquille O'Neal out of the Los Angeles Lakers-Phoenix Suns game.
Shaq, as a certain 1970s newsman once put it, is kind of a big deal. But there's no word on why Ferrell thought he deserved the boot.
Sports Illustrated's Richard Deitsch tweeted out this photo of Ferrell's nametag, which reads (naturally), "Ted Vagina."
