Clint Eastwood was at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am golf tournament this week, just hanging out and saving lives of essential personnel. At a volunteer dinner Wednesday, Steve John, tournament director, started choking on some cheese when Dirty Harry stepped in:

"I gave him three good jolts, and that got it out," said Eastwood. "The look on Steve's face was different than when somebody is just coughing or joking around. I looked in his eyes and saw that look of panic people have when they see their life passing before their very eyes. It looked bad."

You read that right: He recognized "that look of panic people have when they see their life passing before their very eyes." Clint Eastwood even talks like a badass in the newspaper. [San Jose Mercury News]
