There are a number of great teams in history: Starsky & Hutch, Bonnie & Clyde, Donnie & Marie, Laurel & Hardy, Abbot & Costello, BJ & The Bear, Batman & Robin, Electra Woman & Dyna Girl, Dick & Jane, et and al. Fortunately, we too have a dynamic duo in our goofy midst: Wee Man & Preston Lacy, the oddly shaped men in underpants that first took the nation by tighty-whitey storm in the first season of jackass and later conquered the Third World with a little help from some little friends in jackass number two.
Between these two points, however, they once did don the Dahl-inspired duds of Oompa Loompa land to reprise the "origin" of Wee Man on the pilot episode of jackass. With most of the action filmed in Florida and the somewhat sorta barely synchronized lip and dance shit done on the studio lot where our office was located, "Oompa Loompa 2" bounced around the show boards for a while until it was finally assed out altogether when Johnny Knoxville pulled the plug on the TV show. I think it may have eventually leaked online during the ridiculous run of jackassworld.com, but to be honest I may have had a few when we did that. But did you know that the sound stage above was the very same one later infiltrated by 10,000 crickets in one of our greatest studio lot fuck-ups of all time? It is! Nothing like a pesky little chorus of "chirp chirps" to bring a big time movie shoot to a screeching halt and a sound man to tears.
Eskibonus: Did you spot the peeping Guch in the taint between Wee Man and Preston? If so, suck it!
