Ellen: Matthew Perry’s Controversial Joke
“A man is walking down the street and he sees a man with a peach for a head. He tells the guy, “You have a peach for a head? How’d that happen?"
The man with a peach for a head says, “Well, it’s a funny story. I met a genie and he said I had three wishes. First, I wished to be rich and a man with a briefcase of money ran up and gave it to me. Second, I wanted to be married to the most beautiful woman in the world. Mila Kunis walked up to me and said we’re in love and getting married next month. Third, I asked to have a peach for a head."
Thousands weighed in on the joke and Matthew came back to discuss the controversial results. He said that since the show, he’s really fallen in love with the joke. He thinks it’s hilarious that no one had ever brought it up to the guy before. His three wishes were strange. If he wanted a peach for a head, why not make it your first wish? Also, Mila Kunis got the raw deal here. Her peach headed husband is never home.
Portia and Ellen think the joke is hilarious, but what did the viewers think? 55.7 percent thought it was stupid and funny. 24 percent thought it was funny and 20.3 percent thought it was stupid. There were some very nice comments and there were really mean ones. It was called the “stupidest joke I’ve ever heard.” One viewer thought the joke was dirty. Matthew wants to know how that got dirty.
Ellen: Matthew’s New Joke
This is just too fun, so Matthew wants to keep the jokes going.
“A man is standing on a street in New York screaming at the top of his lungs, “PUPPETS. PUPPETS. PUPPETS. PUPPETS.” A guys walks up to him and says, “How’s business going?” The man turns to him and says, “Business?””
