How do I listen to onClick events for a Bootstrap modal button using JQuery?

I have this JavaScript, but the event is never firing.

jQuery(function() {
    $('#emailButton').click(function() {

The HTML is

<button type="button" class="btn btn-default" title="Email Page to a Friend" data-toggle="modal" data-target="#emailModal" id="#emailButton">

The modal pops up, but the click handler isn't working. Nothing shows up in the console. Here is a jsFiddle:

  • OK I found it. I added a hash in the id field. But what's really strange is that I uses Chrome's console to view the object, and it returned a value!

    j?y.fn.init {context: document, selector: "#emailButton"}
    [<button type=?"button" class=?"btn btn-default" title=?"Email Page to a Friend" data-toggle=?"modal" data-target=?"#emailModal" id=?"emailButton">???</button>?]

    However, now I see they return different results.
