Here comes Jerry’s tongue again!

May 20, 2009

Blog Guy, I heard there was some kind of financial disaster involving your Goofy Face Museum and Doughnut Shop.

It’s horrible. We spent a huge portion of our 2009 acquisition budget for the photo on the right of comedian Jerry Lewis mugging in Cannes this week. We were told this was the only Jerry Lewis goofy face shot in existence.

And that isn’t true?

What do you think? It turns out that’s all this guy does. You lift a camera within a mile of him, his tongue flops out like he’s on Novocaine.

As far as I can tell, over the last decade he hasn’t made one serious face. Not at funerals, tax audits, not even at “Marley and Me.”

I’m so sorry. How are you going to make up your loss?

Don’t tell anyone, but we have an inside track on buying Jim Carrey’s only known goofy face photo. Our future is riding on this.

It’s not as bad as you’ve heard. join the Oddly Enough blog network

Man, this guy’s 83 years old and look at how good he looks! Just goes to show you what clean living and a goofy sense of humor will do for you. Keep up the good work Jerry!
