The Awkward Meeting Between that Guy 127 Hours was Based After and the One-Armed Drummer from Def Leppard

- Hello sir.

- Hello.

- I'd shake your hand but, well... you know...

- Right.

- We could hook hooks?

- Yeah, I am really not comfortable with that.

- How bout we bump shoulders?

- Not comfortable with that either.

[awkward pause]

- You're that guy from that movie, right? The dude that cut off his own arm?

- Yep.

- You really sucked it up on the Oscars, you know.

- That wasn't me.  That was James Franco.

- I was wondering why his hand looked so real.

[awkward pause]


- So, you're the drummer for Def Leppard, right?

- Yep.  That's me.

- Amazing how you can drum so well with one arm.

- Well, you're still mountain climbing, right?

- Yeah, but I had to give up my dream of becoming an OBGYN.

- Oh.  Wow.  Well, I suppose that is in the best interest of women.  And babies.

[awkward pause]

- How did you lose your arm?

- Car wreck.

- That bites.

-  No, Love Bites.

- What?

- Nevermind.

[awkward pause]


- Well, I probably should get going.  It was nice meeting you.

- Yeah, me too.  You parked close?

- As close as it gets.

- Me too.

- Hey, we have something in common!

- Really?...  Really?

I have no idea who the crap the drummer from Def Leppard is!

They could start a knitting circle!

That was great!!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Wait a minute - did someone just say they didn't know who Rick Allen of Def Leppard was? I feel so old...

Pat Tillett said...

That was hilarious!
Awkward...

I'm just thinking, if they interlock their hands, they can greet each other with the church-steeple thing. Just an idea.
I liked this, especially the awkward pauses.

You are a mess. I like it. You have too much time on your hands, but I like it.

Jason, as himself said...

Wow. How did you hear overhear THIS conversation?

What's the saying about the one-legged cowboy in a butt kicking contest?

randine said...

How do you come up with this crazy stuff? But keep it coming! That was funny!!

The Church Lady said...

Oh, Armageddon It now!

Get it - "Arm"! Bwaaahaaaa!!

I know, that was lame. I'm a Def Leppard fan.

Still wanting to see 127 Hours.

The drummer is a hottie. The bear? Not so much.

Funny post!

The Stiffs said...

John Grisham said that he writes what he knows so Stephen King terrifies him. Makes me wonder what exactly is going on in your head... and you teach!

mintifresh said...

Wow! I would have thought they would become fast BFF's! Maybe it was because the Def Leopard dude wasn't wearing a shirt..

Julie Musil said...

ROFL!!!! And seriously, an OBGYN? With a hook?

Dave said...

To help break the ice, they could talk about how annoying it is that the US Marshals won't leave them alone about the murder of Dr. Richard Kimble's wife.

Glamazon said...

Hahahaha, that was awesome

Connie said...

I just read this to my 19 year old son. His comment was, "that's weird!" What does he know?

Crystal Pistol said...

A one-armed OBGYN would be a slippery slope indeed. Babies flying in all directions...

"Little Johnny was dropped on his head as a child" would no longer be facetious. eek

Cathy Webster (Olliffe) said...

"That wasn't me. That was James Franco."
"I was wondering why his hand looked so real."
Buahahahahaha!
You are hilarious, man 'o cheese.
Seriously, though, I can't believe Kristina doesn't know about Def Leppard. Then again my son didn't know who Paul Newman was until we made him watch Cool Hand Luke. And that chick on American Idol who had never heard of the Beatles?????? Don't get me started...

gigi said...

Well, Mercy!!

Everyday Goddess said...

sorry, all i got out of that was james franco. thanks!

Pedaling said...

loved that movie...and I'm an 80's girl, so love the music, too!

by the way,
you're a weirdo:)

Teachinfourth said...

I probably shouldn't admit that Def Leppard rocks...or that I want to see that movie, either, should I?

Silver Strands said...

hahaha! I love the "best interst of the babies too" part. Yup - awkward!

PBJdreamer said...

ha!

Only you could think this stuff up.

I love it!

that is all

Emmy said...

Oh come on, don't you think they would instantly bond over having one arm :)

Lazarus said...

Oh Cheesey One,
That sound you hear is of one hand clapping. Nice post!

purseblogger said...

LOL! How DO you come up with this stuff??

M-Cat said...

Had to give up my dream of being an ob-gyn - LAUGH OUT LOUD funny!

baygirl32 said...

AWKWARD! lol

Kelley said...

Your imagination is one to be envied! Love the part where they hooked hooks, or at least it was offered. Love does bite. It also bleeds. It brings me to my knees.

Jenn said...

James Franco really did stink up the Oscars. Maybe if he had actually only had one arm he would have been more entertaining!! LOL

tammy said...

"No, Love Bites." - LOL

Pat said...

They should sit together so they could clap.

This is funny stuff!

The Mom @ Babes in Hairland said...

Ah ... To be a fly on the wall in that brain of yours! :-)

Joann Mannix said...

I am more of a "Pour Some Sugar On Me" fan. I know every single word of that song "Step inside, walk this way..." and now I will be singing it the entire day.

Thanks, Cheese.

And James Franco was a total D Bag on the Oscars along with your favorite annoyance and mine, chirpy little Anne Hathaway.

Okay, BACK TO WRITING. Cannot be distracted by the Cheese.

That would be a little awkward...
