Brian Wilson Cracking Jokes as a Dodger Is as Weird as It Gets

Gabe Zaldivar@gabezalPop Culture Lead WriterAugust 1, 2013

It took a while, but Dodgers fans finally get the joke.

Brian Wilson, the enigmatic reliever who electrified AT&T Park and loyal San Francisco Giants fans for so many years, is now playing for the Los Angeles Dodgers after signing a one-year deal.

It's a shocking move that both fanbases are sure to have mixed opinions about. To make matters worse (or better depending on what floats your boat), Wilson is back to cracking jokes.

Here is a recent tweet from the former closer.

Yes, The Beard is in a picture, albeit a photoshopped one, alongside the likes of Vin Scully, Jackie Robinson, Sandy Koufax and Tommy Lasorda.

Dodger fans, soak it all in and savor the not-so-subtle notes of humor touching every last part of your palate. Giants fans, you can go ahead and do that spit take now.

Let's assume the many who bleed Dodger blue found very little to chuckle about when Wilson introduced the world to "The Machine"—his gimp neighbor who came over for sugar.

They surely felt his shtick had tired once he donned a sailor outfit for an interview with George Lopez. And when he wore a faux tuxedo onesie to the ESPYs, many around Los Angeles cringed over a dude who was just trying too hard to be funny.

Suddenly, from Venice to Altadena and from North Hollywood to whatever area they call south of the 10, baseball fans are demanding to know where the Dodgers found this hilarious personality.

On the flip side, those of you in the Bay Area may now find Wilson a tad more annoying than you used to this morning. It comes with the territory.

Wilson has always been a love-him-if-he-is-on-your-team type of guy. Well, Dodgers fans just looked at an @BrianWilson38 tweet and smiled for the first time.

If they ever have a Wilson bobblehead night at Chavez Ravine, we can officially freak out and accept that the end of the world is upon us.
