I'm not calling bullsh*t, but I am calling "you've been waiting for the right moment to use that photo."
Maybe you've heard or maybe you haven't, but last night someone said Amy Schumer looks like the lady from that iconic "American Gothic" painting. Or a descendent of her, in any case. #NoDisprespect, of course.
Hilariously, and to everyone's delight, Amy Schumer responded with a picture of herself and beloved actor J.K. Simmons being dead ringers for the portrait's subjects. "Complete with plastic fork!" raved everyone. But here's the thingamajig about this here image. It was posted two minutes later. How did she get J.K. Simmons so quickly? Because the photo's from April. How do I know that?

I wondered to myself "How do these two know each other?" So, and this is what makes me a genius, I Googled their names and only searched things before yesterday. Turns out, the last time they were seen together was when Schumer hosted the MTV Movie Awards back in April. In her opening bit, she did the ol' celebrity-packed-revisiting-of-the-year's-big-movies montage, which included J.K. Simmons yelling at her and calling her a "tramp stamp." At some point while filming that, these two must have realized who they look like, or someone on set commented on it, and they took the picture. I'm not saying Schumer got impatient with people not realizing she looks like a poor 19th Century farmer and paid Vicky Rogers to tweet it, I'm just saying that's a long time to wait to use a photo. (I'm really not saying that this is all fake.)
