Here is the "ridiculous celebrity" that pushed the button to drop the ball last year:

Iraq war veteran Karolina Wierzchowska, who was also a Ground Zero guard worker and a New York Police Academy valedictorian.

The year before: Master-at-Arms 2nd Class Liliana G. Perez, assigned as a K-9 handler at Naval Weapons Station Earle, N.J., and Electricians Mate 2nd Class Oswaldo San Andres, assigned to the Navy Operational Support Center Amityville, N.Y., were chosen to represent the Navy during the New Years festivities.

In 2004, it was COlin Powell -- I hear his dance moves are fantastic.

And if you go back it time,to 1998, you get this tabloid senation: Sang Lan, the Chinese gymnast given little chance of walking again after landing head-first on a mat while practicing a vault at the Goodwill Games in July.

In 2000, it was Muhammed Ali, and we all know he is every bit as fluffy a personality as Britney.

But the most egregious of all was 1999, when pure empty headed celebrity sensation Dr. Mary Ann Hopkins from Doctor's Without Borders was chosen to push the button for the ball drop.

Yep, you got it nailed.

on edit -- I left one out -- the first invited guest to push the button to drop the ball in Times Square: Oseola McCarty. Just another ridiculous celebrity. You can read about her here:
