Recently, my 65-year-old mother called me up and said: "Guess what! I discovered the most amazing actor ever!"
Mom: "His name is Richard Gare."
Me: "Richard Gere?"
Me: "How is it possible that you're just discovering him now? He's been famous since, like, the 80s."
Mom: "Well, I knew who he was. But I didn't know how wonderful he was!"
Apparently, she watched some movie called Primal Fear and now she's in love with Richard Gere (who she keeps calling Richard Gare). Anyway, I told this story to my husband.
Me: "How could she not know who Richard Gere is! He's so famous."
Husband: "He was the one in Pretty Woman, right?"
Me: "Yes, and he was married to Cindy Crawford."
Husband: "He was?"
Me: "Yes! How do you not know that?"
Husband: "The only thing I know about Richard Gere is about how he put that hamster up his butt."
Husband: "You haven't heard that story?"
Husband: "It's pretty well known. That's probably what most people think of when they think of Richard Gere."
Me: "I really don't think so."
Husband: "Yes. If you asked a group of guys, I bet that would be the first thing that most of them would say about Richard Gere."
Me: "That's definitely not true."
But apparently, it is true. Thanks for proving me wrong.
So now settle another argument:
Is the term "amazeballs" more likely to be said by a man or a woman?
