Because they rhyme
Billy Crystal‘s book, “Still Foolin’ ‘Em,” has some interesting company on best-seller lists: “Si-cology,” penned by Uncle Si of “Duck Dynasty.” It isn’t the first time the “Duck Dynasty” gang has been riding his coattails, Crystal said on Monday’s “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.”
The Robertson family’s entire hit A&E reality show is actually a rip-off of something Crystal did years earlier, “Schmuck Dynasty,” the comedian told Fallon. Naturally, the late night show had a clip to roll.
“Schmuck Dynasty” sees Crystal and Fallon sitting on a park bench, in full Orthodox Jewish garb, calling passers-by “schmucks” under their breath. Until Fallon breaks out the schmuck call — that’s pretty loud. And that’s pretty much it.
It probably took the two comedians longer to get in costume than to shoot the brief spoof.
