When an attractive blonde woman asked Modern Family and Married… with Children star Ed O’Neill for a photograph at the airport, he said yes. It was something he was pretty used to, after all. So the woman posed with him excitedly, got her photograph taken and went on her way. And O’Neill thought nothing more about it until the woman posted the shot on her Twitter account. Then he was told what had happened to him, and it was pretty damn funny.

Ed O’Neill shot to fame in 1987 with the TV series Married… with Children. He played the main character, Al Bundy, a one-time high school football star-turned-husband and shoe salesman. And the show was a big success, with both O’Neill and his character going down in American sitcom history. By the time Married eventually ended in 1997, in fact, it had run for an impressive 11 seasons.

But Ed O’Neill wasn’t a one-hit wonder. During and after Married… with Children,  he appeared in plenty of high-profile movies and TV shows. He showed up in cult hit Wayne’s World, for example, played Relish the Troll King in The 10th Kingdom and was later cast as recurring character Eric Baker in The West Wing. He also did plenty of commercials, meaning that he was rarely off screens.
