Yeah But Which Farrelly Brother Was It?


One thing I definitely have in my lexicon of knowledge is there are the Coen brothers and there are the Farrelly brothers. What I don't know is which one is which when looking at each set. Anyway, the point of all this is that Bobby Farrelly was arrested in Stowe Vermont earlier this month for getting into a bar fight. Not a big deal if you think about it until you realize that the two people he got into a fight with were police officers. It is hard for me to think of a bar fight in Stowe Vermont. All I can imagine is a bunch of rich people sitting around drinking cognac and talking about the lack of powder and discussing the merits of east coast vs west coast skiing and how they would prefer to be in Europe, but of course business has kept them in the States.

So, then along comes Farrelly. Yeah? Did you get that? Good for you. I don't need to use the word allegedly here because Bobby has already admitted to it. It was after a hockey game and I'm guessing Bobby was still a little wired after being hip checked all night. I mean those 10 year old kids in his league can be tough.

"It happened really fast," he said. "Nobody was hurt. It was a lot of, like, bluster. I'm embarrassed and I'm going to apologize and make sure it never happens again."

Farrelly was booked on charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. You or I would have been booked with assault on a police officer and looking at 10 years in prison. He is looking at community service which is going to amount to a free showing of Dumb and Dumber and providing the popcorn.

There's something about a Mary Christmas that brings out the Dumb of Dumb and Dumber.

LOL, Gladys & Enty!

Don't you think in a town like that they give all tourists a slap on the wrist, not just famous ones?

Celebrities seem to get away with murder.

Stowe is a nice town. I went hiking around there a couple years ago. Ben and Jerry's factory is about an hour away.

I wonder if it will make it into one of their movies - big fight scene with the underdog against the cops while Why Can't We Be Friends by War plays.
