The Dallas Cowboys and Jerry Jones are making a complete joke of an already ridiculous situation, releasing "Jerry Wipes" eyeglass cleaners.
The Dallas Morning News (h/t NFL.com) reports Jerry Jones has taken a great deal of amusement from a silly little glasses incident that involved his son-in-law Shy Anderson. Now, he will sell "Jerry Wipes" for those who want to clean, or not clean, their glasses like a true gazillionaire.
After days of ribbing about the incident, Shy may get the last laugh with a new product that will soon be offered in the Cowboys’ online store. He has designed and ordered eyeglass-cleaning cloths with the words “Jerry Wipes” printed on them.
“They can also be used for spontaneous shoe shining, if necessary,” he says with a chuckle. Is he serious?
“Absolutely,” he says. “It started out as a joke, but let’s see how far we can take it.”
If you read those lines correctly, you begin to see something that resembles, it started out as a joke but we could probably make a boatload of money on this, so we are going to sell them."
Perhaps that's just my cynical heart that never pulled the lever casting my lone vote to the Cowboys for the title of America's team. Maybe, just maybe, I find it silly that a grown man once cleaned another grown man's spectacles and it was captured on live TV.
Jerry Jones may in fact be Darth Sidious, laughing in the face of what you consider to be horrible and insufferable acts.
The owner recently sounded off on the silly scandal, via NFL.com.
We're having fun with it, too. And one of the great things about him, he does have a big-time sense of humor. We're having more fun about how ridiculous it is. But it's fun. Let's keep it going.
Please read: Let's see if there is a penny behind what should have been an embarrassing moment.
Yes, I understand this is all a joke and not worth reporting, like most NFL reporting nowadays.
I have every right to think this is far too ridiculous to be funny, just as Jerry Jones has every right not to clean his glasses.
I would have enjoyed it better if Shy Anderson was rented out to clean other people's glasses. Now that's an idea with some legs.
