The JoePa Chronicles: Joe Paterno Meets Fergie

As mentioned below, in the Gridiron Bash promotion that's bringing Kelly Clarkson to Iowa, Penn State will be graced with Fergie's presence. One commenter pondered what would happen if Joe Paterno were ever to meet her. We, too, pondered. Enjoy.

Good morning, Joe! There's someone I think you should meet.

WHAT

Well, as part of our Grid Iron Bash, we're hosting a concert at Beaver Stadium! Isn't that something!

I HOPE IT'S DOROTHY HORNBAKER, HER DULCET TONES SOOTHED ME DURING THE GREAT DEPRESSION

Sir, you're not nearly old enough to have remem

YES 1966 WAS VERY DEPRESSING

Anyway. We're having Fergie perform at Beaver Stadium the night before the game!

FERGIE?

Yes, the kids love her!

I NEVER THOUGHT THE DUCHESS OF YORK WOULD HAVE A CULTURAL RENAISSANCE ON ACCOUNT OF HER OLD AGE AND HORSELIKE APPEARANCE

Ha, ha! No, not her! There's a different Fergie. She's with a band called the Black Eyed Peas

DISGUSTING, AT BEST THE NINTH TASTIEST LEGUME AVAILABLE

...and she's also a very accomplished solo artist as well. She should be here at any moment.

I NEVER DID TRUST THE BRITISH, AND YOU'D BE A FOOL TO DO SO YOURSELF

Sir. Not the same "Fergie."

BACK IN 1973, OUR TAILBACK WAS A HORSE OF A KID, JOHN CAPPELLETTI. FIRST TIME I EVER SAW A HEISMAN WINNER WITH THREE PAIRS OF DOUBLED LETTERS IN HIS NAME. BEFORE THE AIR FORCE GAME, CAPPO COMES UP TO ME AND SAYS, 'COACH, I CAN'T PLAY THIS WEEKEND,' AND I ASK HIM, WELL WHY NOT, AND HE TELLS ME HE'S GOT TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL BECAUSE HIS DAD'S BEEN IN A FACTORY ACCIDENT AND A PIECE OF SHEET METAL HAD RUN THROUGH HIS LOWER TORSO. WELL, I FIGURE THOSE AIR FORCE CANDYASSES HAD PLAYED A TRICK ON HIM. SO I DO WHAT ANY SANE COACH WOULD DO AND HAVE MY ASSISTANT COACHES HIRE SOME DELINQUENTS. NEVER DO DIRECT BUSINESS WITH A CRIMINAL, I SAY. SO THEY SNEAK ONTO THE BASE AND PLANT EXPLOS

Coach, if I may interrupt

LONG STORY SHORT WE ARE NOW NO LONGER IN GOOD DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS WITH BOLIVIA

(keep reading...)

Coach, Fergie's here.

WONDERFUL, BRING THIS WOMAN IN

Hello, Mr. Paterno.

GOOD HEAVENS A PROSTITUTE

Ha, ha, ha! You're funny!

ARE YOU HERE TO COPULATE WITH SEAN LEE

No, I'm Fergie!

HE LOVES PROSTITUTES LIKE YOU WOULD NOT BELIEVE

Coach! She's just here to meet you while we finalize the deal for her to sing at Happy Valley! She is not a prostitute!

WHY THEN GOOD MORNING, WELCOME TO PENN STATE FOOTBALL

Thank you, it's a pleasu

YOU WILL BE PLAYING CORNERBACK

I... I'm sorry?

THAT WAS A JOKE YOUNG LADY, WOMEN HAVEN'T GOT A PLACE ON THE FOOTBALL FIELD

Anyway. I'm very excited to be on stage at Happy Valley! I've never performed in front of over 100,000 fans!

I ONCE PERFORMED IN FRONT OF A LARGE CROWD. IT WAS 1986, AND WE WERE UP AGAINST THE MIAMI HURRICANES FOR THE TITLE. NUMBER ONE VERSUS NUMBER TWO! WE WERE CLINGING TO A 14-10 LEAD LATE, AND WE KNOCKED A PASS AWAY IN THE END ZONE ON FOURTH DOWN. BALL GAME, NITTANY LIONS! AFTER I RIPPED OUT A HANDFUL OF JIMMY JOHNSON'S HAIR, I GRABBED MY WIFE FROM THE STANDS AND MADE VIOLENT LOVE TO HER, RIGHT THERE ON THE FIFTY YARD LINE. SURE ENOUGH, FOUR MONTHS LATER, SHE GIVES BIRTH TO DERRICK WILLIAMS, THE NUMBER ONE RECRUIT IN THE NATION

Um... four months?

I PLACED MY WIFE IN THE TRUNK OF MY CAR AND DROVE ON GRAVEL ROADS FOR AN HOUR A DAY. THE VIBRATIONS CAN SPEED UP THE PREGNANCY BY ALMOST 300%

Anyway. I hope you're able to come to the show. It's a huge production, we've got dancers, pyrotechnics, an outstanding light show, it's awesome. You'd love it.

THERE'S TWO THINGS I LOVE, MISSY, AND THAT'S FOOTBALL AND A STIFF WHISKEY AND GINGER ALE. I DON'T CARE MUCH FOR THE DANCING AND PRANCING

Well, do you remember James Bond?

I KNEW YOU WERE IN CAHOOTS WITH THE UNTRUSTWORTHY BRITISH

No, I covered "Live And Let Die" for CBS! Take a look:

What do you think?

...

...

...

HOLY LORD GOD I DID NOT KNOW MANKIND WAS CAPABLE OF SUCH UTTER CRAP

What?!

THAT WAS WORSE THAN MY LAST BOWEL MOVEMENT

Hey, that's not ver

WHICH LOOKED AND SMELLED LIKE A DECOMPOSING RACCOON

Fine. Forget it. You're hopeless. This is worse than what they told me to expect

WHAT IS THAT

That... that you're a zombie and you'd try to feast on my brains.

"FEAST ON YOUR BRAINS?" WHY THAT'S JUST PLAIN RIDICULOUS

I know, but they were insistent that you've been dead since 1998 and

YOU DON'T HAVE ENOUGH GRAY MATTER TO FEED A HORSEFLY

Ugh. I knew this was a mistake. Are you insecure because of my good looks and singing ability?

LISTEN YOU TRANSVESTITE, THOSE LIPS LOOK GOOD FOR DOING ONE THING, AND IT'S NOT SINGING

I'm leaving.

WAIT, BEFORE YOU GO

Say it, you old sack of shit.

DO YOU KNOW DARRYL PRYOR

What? Who? No.

OH BUTTWHISTLES

(Part 2, 3.)
