As any good student of TV and film knows, there is nothing funnier than when someone falls down. Dick Van Dyke built his entire career out of tripping over that damn ottoman, and he was in Tubby the Tuba; dude knows comedy. So the only thing surprising about the latest, greatest meme, “Scarlett Johansson Falling Down,” which naturally began with a photo of ScarJo sliding into the sidewalk in December 2012, is that it took so long to become a meme.
It’s only a matter of time before Johansson teams up with Kevin James, and they turn falling into mud puddles and toilets into an Oscar-winning extravaganza. They can call their first masterpiece, Have a Nice Fart.
