CHARLES BARKLEY: OPEN WIDE AND SAY AHHH! (no, the other end)
Brace yourself. This might be the worst mental image you’ll ever picture in your life. I haven’t seen this blurb receive as much publicity as I thought, but it was in the Philadelphia Daily News and on Foxsports.com today.
Former NBA star Charles Barkley is going to undergo a colonoscopy Friday and it’s going to be TELEVISED.
Great! I mean, who doesn’t want to see the inside of Charles Barkley’s ass? At first, I thought this would just be another goofy little TNT segment with Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson. Nope! Barkley’s giant butt is going network. Make that THREE networks. Barkley is undergoing the test as part of the “Stand Up To Cancer” event being televised on September 5th. It will be aired on NBC, ABC, AND CBS making Barkley’s colonoscopy one of the most widely televised events in broadcasting history.
The televised event actually led to some creative writer at Foxsports.com penning this lead:
“We may not know what Shaq’s tastes like (or really care to, for that matter), but we’re about to find out what Sir Charles’ looks like.”
The article also contains another classic Barkley quote,
they were “probably just looking for the celebrity with the biggest ass.”
