THE INSIDE OF CHARLES BARKLEY’S ASS: MUST SEE TV

August 20, 2008

 

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.

No!!!!!!!!!!!

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.”

Former NBA star and current TNT announcer Charles Barkley says, “I’m not going to gamble anymore.”

Barkley made the announcement during TNT’s playoff coverage last night less than a week after acknowledging he owed a $400,000 debt to the Wynn Las Vegas casino.

WYNN CASINO SUES CHARLES BARKLEY FOR $400,000 MAY FILE CRIMINAL CHARGES

It appears former NBA star Charles Barkley’s gambling habit may have finally caught up with him.

A story in today’s Las Vegas Sun says the Wynn Las Vegas casino is suing Barkley for $400,000 in gambling debts. And, there’s even worse news for the TNT announcer

Under Nevada law, gambling markers can be treated the same as bad checks and can be CRIMINALLY PROSECUTED. The Sun says,

The casino also persuaded the Clark County district attorney’s bad check unit to open a criminal investigation. The unit has authority under state law to investigate gambling debts in the same manner as bad checks.

District Attorney David Roger said Barkley will be notified of the investigation and given an opportunity to make restitution to Wynn Las Vegas to avoid being charged with a felony.

“We prosecute cases like this every day,” Roger said. “Mr. Barkley will be treated the same as everybody else.”

In an interview with ESPN, Barkley once said he’d lost “probably $10 million” gambling.

Spectacular piece of reporting (including this picture) by the website Can’t Stop The Bleeding.

In a story the mainstream media missed, the website reports that both John Madden and Charles Barkley are suing Dish Network over parody ads featuring Frank Caliendo. (Caliendo impersonates both Barkley and Madden in the ads.)

To quote Can’t Stop The Bleeding, “If being unfunny was a crime, Frank Caleindo would be on death row.”
