Was it a week ago? I think so. I was listening to the Tuesday 6:40 replay of the Monday 8:40 Fake Jerry interview.
Gordon started the bit not with his Cartoon Jerry foghorn voice, the one he always uses, but instead his Actual Jerry genuwine impersonation that he brings out once in awhile, but only rarely and briefly. He only got through a phrase -- possibly even less than a sentence -- when he decided it wasn't happening the way he wanted, and he made a very brief reference to it not working and then shifted back into Cartoon Jerry for the balance of the bit.
But not this week. He did the whole interview, for the first time I can recall, in his Actual Jerry voice. Which, for my money, may be even more brilliant than Cartoon Jerry.
|Gordon, you're getting me all . . . confused.|
Wondering why, not that I care. Both Jerrys are very funny. I wondered briefly if Gordon might be thinking that Actual Jerry might be more amusing -- the shock of recognition -- to a national audience that might pick up one of the bits during a time that the Cowboys are more in the national spotlight.
Nah. Nah. Anyway, it was excellent.
