Double-life celebrity cross-referencing scheme

One for the National Enquirer ...

It's a notable fact that certain celebrities and public figures never seem to ever appear in the same place simultaneously. For instance, no-one has recorded seeing the Pope and Kylie Minogue together, or more worryingly Kim Jong-Un and Justin Bieber.

Spookily, Elvis Presley was never seen again after Mork and Mindy premiered.

The reason is blindingly obvious; these public figures are leading "double lives".

The idea is for a scheme to cross-reference millions of citizen reports of meetings of celebrities - "Los Angeles, 23 March, 14:32 - shook hands with Ewan McGregor, no sign of Celine Dione anywhere."

Then, by exclusion, it is trivially easy to work out who's been playing on public gullibility for years.

       No, because you make your guests play with warped cues, the balls and pockets aren't the regulation size, and we know about the "secret" mechanism* you had Sturton install to allow the table to be tilted by remote control.   

       *You might have got away with the pneumatic pillar jacks, but leaving the air compressor in plain sight is just foolish.
