George Clooney tries to throw down with Fabio


George Clooney and his girlfriend were out to eat in L.A. over the weekend and just happened to be seated next to Fabio and a group of women. Things were cool until one of Fabio’s friends started snapping pictures which seem to ruffle George Clooney’s feathers, according to Page Six:

According to numerous eyewitnesses, Clooney, assuming the woman was taking snaps of him, asked her to stop – prompting Fabio to explain that the shots were of his group, not Clooney, and to tell the superstar, “Stop being a diva.” Clooney started arguing back, and he and Fabio then got into a shoving match. “The waiters broke it up before it got out of hand,” a witness told In Touch.

“George was drinking . . . He wasn’t drunk, but he certainly wasn’t stone sober, either.” Fabio’s manager told the magazine, “George is lucky he didn’t end up in the ER.”

I wonder who would win in a fight between Fabio and George Clooney. On the one hand, Fabio is a pretty solid dude, but didn’t he get sucker punched by a bird once? Then there’s George Clooney. Not exactly a heavyweight but he’s pretty athletic. Also, he seems to have a drinking problem which gives him a distinct and awesome advantage in my book. Then there’s that chin. That wonderful, wonderful chin. “Give me a man with a solid chin over a muscle-bound brute any day,” I always say. I mean, in a, uh, totally heterosexual way. Women are awesome, yeah. I love them. Everyday. I sometimes make intercourse in the pelvis with them. Because I love them so much. The, uh, women. Save me with your magic, George Clooney’s chin!
