Speeding And Donuts

[BlindGossip] This well-known funny actor is known to enjoy a drink or two over the course of an evening. While driving home (sober) after a recent dinner in Southern California, however, he was pulled over for speeding.

The officer walked up to the driver’s side and asked the actor for his license and registration. The actor smiled and asked the officer, “Don’t you recognize me?” The officer replied, “Yes. Now show me your license and registration anyway, Funny Man.”

Uh oh. This did not bode well for our actor. He produced the documents, but continued to smile and engage the officer in conversation, hoping that he could establish a rapport and avoid a ticket. The officer looked at the documents and then looked at the actor.

“Have you been drinking tonight, Sir?”

“No. Why?”

“Because your eyes look a little red.”

The actor couldn’t resist asking a question in return.

“Officer, have you been eating donuts tonight?”

The officer, visibly annoyed, said “No. Why?”

“Because your eyes look a little glazed.”

The officer stared at the actor for a few seconds, then burst out laughing. The actor got off with a warning, and the officer went home with a good celebrity story to tell.

    My initial reaction was either Adam Sandler or Chris Rock, but neither of them really have a signature style. I’m thinking someone with distinctive teeth/lips, etc. Maybe I’m reading too much into it, and it’s his trademark because he does comedy?

      Not true. My stepbrother was speeding one night and was pulled over. He got out of the ticket by telling the cop that he was rushing home to watch Cops.

      I feel there are references here to his distinct “trademark” smile, the fact that he’s a comedian who has portrayed a “funny man” in film (Andy Kaufman), he’s certainly got enough cheek to reply to an officer’s question with a question, and he’s had his issues with the drink. The doughnut joke also strikes me as both police-oriented and Canadian-esque at the same time. I only say that as I am a Canadian and there is some serious doughnut love up here. However, I can also acknowledge similar passions in the US so perhaps it’s moot.

    Jim Carrey? His [obnoxious] smile, his movie, “Yes, Man” and the “,Funny Man” connection. Im not sure of what else, but this seems like something he’d do. Also, he’s admittedly had an alcohol problem in the past…

    LOL. My guess is Jerry Seinfeld. But it’s a shot in the dark there are dozens of possibilities.

    For some reason I want to say Robin Williams. Whoever it is, nice way to get out of a ticket LOL

    This has to be Jim Carry. His smile is contagious! I’ve had a crush on him for as long as I can remember lol.I just pictured him the entire time I read this, it sounds like something he’d do and say!

    First comment!!! I’m going to go with Steve Carrell, Adam Sandler, or Kevin Hart???? I could be completely wrong though.

  7. WaitLemmeGuess says

    I’m thinking only Jim Carrey could crack a joke that corny/dorky. Plus, with his poor upbringing, it might seem like a big deal to get a speeding ticket to him, even if would barely put a dent in his wallet.

    Steve Buscemi? Trademark smile? I know he does serious acting but he’s been in some pretty crazy/funny roles.

    Adam Sandler. I don’t find his sense of humor funny…and that joke was not funny.

  10. Guestimate says

    I’m voting for Jim Carey too.

    He’s the only one that I would consider to have a “trademark” smile.

    I swear they oughta make “Don’t you know who I am?” the official motto of Los Angeles County. Just once I’d like for someone to answer that question with “Yes, I DO know, and that’s why I did it!”

  12. MoeschaB says

    Adam Sandler – Smile, the wit, the funny man, enjoys a drink or two. But really, only Sandler could pull that line off and actually get away with it.

  13. snews says

    David Della Rocco? “Funny Man” is a line in Boondock Saints. Plus the clue says well-known and not famous or a/b/c list. I think a main character in a well-liked though not a hit movie qualifies for well-known.

    jim carrey, my favorite…he looks like he would smoke something that would redden the eyes lol
