Tommy Chong Among New ‘Dancing With The Stars’ Cast
I have never watched one single episode of Dancing With The Stars. It's not that I hate the show or anything, I just don't see the point of watching a bunch of privileged people doing the mambo. I mean, don't they get enough face time as it is?
That changes this year. While I don't know most of the "stars" competing this year, I am pretty geeked to see Chong, MMA's Randy Couture, and Alfonso Ribiero (aka Carlton) shake what their momma's gave them.
Obviously, there's a joke in here somewhere about Alfonso doing the "Carlton". I'm just too lazy to find it.
Randy Couture is one of the most decorated MMA fighters in the history of the sport. While athletes are known for their coordination and agility, Randy was a wrestler who spent most of his career on the ground. So...will his instincts kick in as he's dancing, and will he end up putting his partner in a guillotine? That would be classic.
Tommy Chong in a serious competition? I doubt that. Odds are, he'll be the first one booted from the show. But that's OK. He'll most likely be so stoned, he'll think he's won. Again, classic.
