Cut!

Clipart image of a clapperboarxd.

(Almost) inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 16 November 2021, ungainly.

The eight-foot tall extra was hired,
His big break in a movie, inspired,
But with ungainly appearance,
And lack of coherence,
The director announced he was fired.

Actually, the word ungainly reminds me of one man… Tommy Cooper.

He was a giant of a man who just looked awkward in everything he did. As a performer, he would have the audience in stitches before even doing anything. He was actually an accomplished magician and I thought it was so skillful, how he got tricks so perfectly “wrong”.

  1. Richard Kiel “Jaws” from Roger Moores Bond days that’s the first person came to mind but he did really well ! Also Andre the Giant from The Princess Bride he almost stole that movie but for Mandy Patinkin
