We've been trying to get Brangelina to adopt us for years, but we've had no such luck. Thanks to George Clooney, we have a new strategy for getting adopted into a celebrity famous.
"I always wanted to be adopted, but I couldn't find anyone," said Clooney during a Newseum event in Washington, D.C., with his father, former Ohio news anchor Nick Clooney, and veteran journalist Bill Small on either side of him, reports People magazine.
"Will you adopt me?" George said to Small. "I'm very wealthy. I'll take care of you." We'll adopt you any day Georgey. We'll play dress up and climb trees together. It'll be loads of fun. Where do we apply?
With two Clooney's under one roof, you know the jokes didn't stop there. After George joked that his father was an old man who needed a walker, Clooney senior, 75, shot back, "You aren't my walker…but you are my retirement plan."
George and Nick were out promoting Nick's Reel Journalism film program. Talk of adoption started before a screening of "Good Night, and Good Luck," a movie about iconic CBS newsman Edward R. Murrow, was screened to the room.
The movie is now being shown in journalism schools across the country. Maybe Nick should get George to sign off the royalties from the movie into his retirement plan. Not a bad idea. We still want to know details about adopting George.
