Duh Aficionado Magazine: Orlando Bloom Is Not A Cop

This picture has had me laughing for two days, so I figured I would post it. Whatever. It’s Friday, you ain’t got no job, you ain’t got shit to do. Look at him. He’s on the set of his new movie, Main Street, but he might as well be on the Big Pharma research campus helping to develop Goof Pills. Total goofball. FREEZE, OR I WILL GOOF YOU. Very convincing, Orlando Bloom. Authoritative. To be fair, I have no idea what Main Street is about, so it could be a biopic about this guy, in which case Orlando Bloom is well cast. If, on the other hand, Main Street is a serious cop drama about real cops doing cop stuff, then LOL. Forget it, Jake, it’s Elizabethtown. There are other pictures, too, and they’re almost all completely hilarious, but this is the one that really gets me. It’s like reverse-9/11. No one feels compelled to serve a more noble calling when they see this guy. Paul Blart: Bad Accent Cop.

“The mayor is putting a lot of pressure on the department to clean up its act. The D.A. is turning it into a total goofhunt.”

“I need you to turn in your badge and your gun. And your moustache.”

Look at him. “I like a clown in uniform.” To goof and protect.
