Adam Scott won the Masters‘ tournament this weekend. No, not that Adam Scott. I’ll explain.
There was golf on my television this past Sunday and I didn’t put it there. I’m sure I’m not the only one this happened to. I have never purposely tuned into golf, but I’ve seen it several times in my years here on Earth because golf is a tricky little thing. Your dad/boyfriend/ghost-that-controls-your-remote turns it on and suddenly you find yourself actually watching. You don’t understand how the scoring works or what an eagle or birdie is, but the announcers voice is just so soothing. The repetitiveness is calming. The grass is so… green. Slowly your eyes glaze over and you find yourself falling asleep until you hear those two words that jerk you back to reality: Adam Scott.
Wait. What? What’s going on? You were starting to fall asleep but heard a name that made you think there was something more out there…or on there, rather. Parks and Recreation is that you? No. No it’s not. It’s just golf and the eventual winner of the Masters’ name is also Adam Scott. Golf was just continuing it’s sneaky mind games.
Some people decided to take advantage of the Adam Scott name connection. If they were going to get tricked by golf, then at least they could make some pun-tastic jokes in the meantime, right? Wrong. Adam Scott the actor does not want to be dragged into your stupid jokes and he appeared on Conan last night to make sure everyone knows it.
At first Adam Actor thought the attention was kinda cool, “but it got old… fast.” Here’s a few of the jokes Adam was subjected to:
In very slight defense of the second joke, I thought it had a triple meaning (very difficult to achieve) before seeing it written down. I thought it was “polar opposites” and was supposed to be funny because Adam Golf is Australian, therefore from the other pole of the Earth… If that even makes sense…? Oh man, that joke is so not funny either way. The point is, Adam Scott The First wants everyone to just ”shut the hell up!”
It didn’t end there though. It couldn’t. Once you get Adam Scott in person you have to (HAVE TO) make the ultimate golf joke. After finishing his speech, Conan rewarded Adam for his bravery in discussing the issue with a Green Jacket. It kind of suits him. He should wear it the next time he parks his golf cart at the recreation center. Yay lame jokes! Sorry, Adam.
