The 10 Most Improbable Celebrity Fistfights

09Oct07

So, I wrote this article called The 10 Most Improbable Celebrity Fistfights for Cracked, and scant minutes after e-mailing my completed draft, I found out about this. Here’s Danny Bonaduce dropping Johnny Fairplay on his face and knocking out a few teeth.

It was too late to include it, but I just wanted you to see that.

Additionally, while reading the Andy Dick/Jon Lovitz entry, you may want to take note that, aside from his role in Phil Hartman’s death, Dick (known as the “Angel of Death” of the comedy community) was also the last person seen with Suddenly Susan star David Strickland before he hanged himself in a hotel room after a three-day drug and alcohol bender. Of course, as awful as this is, anything he did to hasten Suddenly Susan off the air is arguably a point in Dick’s favor.

There. Now you’re ready to read the article.

    “Getting dressed to the nines in the middle of the night specifically to, in a punch of Mortal Kombat proportions, almost knock some asshole out a window for waking you up? Charlie Watts may have more balls than anyone else on the planet.”
    — That is perhaps the best sentence I have ever read.

  2. I thought they called Dick “angel of death” in reference to what he was to funny.

  3. Hey Pete,

    It’s not my intention to post plugs on your blog, but my means of reaching you are limited.

    I just thought I’d let you know that Movember time is rolling around again–and this year it’s much more official, and sanctioned by the Prostate Cancer Research Foundation of Canada. Whether you’re thinking of participating or not this year, I thought I’d let you know about an opening night event taking place this Monday (I think you’re in Toronto, am I wrong?). Due to trouble with last year’s organization, hard-growing, money raising participants like you were robbed of their slated Movember Gala Party. This year it’s all pre-booked, confirmed and much huger of a deal.

    Anyway, I didn’t mean to distract your other readers from the delightful image of Andy Dick’s bleeding face for too long. You can always email me if you want any more details. Cheers!

  4. Would it be too forward for me to say that I’m now in love with Danny Bonaduce because of you? Thank you for that, Peter Lynn. Thank you.

    I always think of Charlie Watts in the ‘Start Me Up’ video, drumming away in his suit looking like one of my uncles drunk at a wedding.

    Just imagining him facing Mick Jagger at 5am, in a Saville Row business suit and right hooking him into oblivion and then mouthing off is possibly the greatest image i could ever EVER hope to have.

    Thank you so much Peter, i’m going to request they carve ‘i’m not your drummer, you’re my f**king singer,’ onto my tombstone.
