Normally, it is to our great shame that we miss something sort of awesome and another Canucks blog happens upon it first. We do our best to be on top of this stuff. But in this case, we’re not ashamed to admit that this one escaped us the first time around.
Why? Because it means we don’t watch the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. (No offense if you do watch it. It’s just that we’re #TeamCoCo. Also, when we watch late-night comedy, we like to laugh occasionally. But seriously, no offense.)
However, lucky for all of us here in the Canucks’ blogosphere (also known as the Smylosphere), Jordan Bowman of the Province’s Legion of Blog has been working the Jay Leno beat. Hard. And Monday night, his fervent, completely unexplainable devotion to Leno finally paid off. In honour of the NHL lockout coming to an end, Leno debuted a new gag, titled, “Hockey mouth or meth mouth?”
I think you will recognize the mouth.
Okay, that’s actually pretty funny.
Yes, that is indeed Zack Kassian’s gappy grin from the photo that tops this post. It’s a good choice of mouth, although I’ll admit I’m a little disappointed they didn’t debut this little game during Dustin Brown’s visit with the Stanley Cup, when they could have played the game with Brown, and with Brown’s mouth.
No surprise they went with a hockey mouth, by the way. Did you really think the Tonight Show was going to give us a meth mouth? Come on. This isn’t HBO, this is NBC. At 11:30. On the major networks, all meth humour is reserved for post-midnight; everybody knows that.Jay Leno, The YouTubes, Zack Kassian
