    I have to relate this story.

    My wife is one of the docs at a street clinic for the homeless. Recently, she went to the Kelowna Gospel Mission to try to find a client. She started to introduce herself, but the counselor stopped her and said, "I know who you are, you're ghetto famous!"

    Now, my kids have taken to introducing her like that.

    If there are any reasons to be famous, this is certainly one of them. Hats off to your lovely wife for taking care of the downtrodden.

    Ghetto famous might be better than actual famous.

    Yep, better to be respected on the streets for truly good deeds than be a social media hack influencer, speaking nonsense to make money and draw attention to yourself.

    Though you can still be both ;)
