Dude, You're Not Adam Sandler

Come on Jimmy Fallon, just because you're some washed up SNL'er with a frightfully unlucky film carreer, and no chance of making anyone laugh, that does NOT give you a license to keep on pretending you're the Adam Sandler mini-me.

Fallon is going to marry Drew Barrymore's business partner of ten years, after meeting on the set of that movie where Jimmy was doing a Sandler role. I'm sure she's a nice lady, whoever she is, but even SHE has to admit that Jimmy's crush on Adam is starting to border on creepy instead of just the usual annoying.

And why Adam Sandler? If you're going to rip someone off all the time, why not choose someone who is funny? Adam and Jimmy both have to laugh at their own jokes, because nobody else will. Can't he just pull a Dennis Leary, and only rip off dead guys?

It doesn't matter if he is staring in romantic comedies with Drew Barrymore, bouncing around the Tonight Show with his Adam Sandler inspired songs, or literally pretending to be Adam Sandler in SNL skits, Fallon is a failure with a stutter and floppy hair.
