And Now, For The Time A Very Upset Pregnant Amy Poehler Was Comforted By Jon Hamm

June 3, 2014 / Posted by:

Because Satan always needs new reading material for his book club in Hell, Amy Poehler is releasing a memoir titled Yes Please at the end of October. In it, she tells the story about when she met Jon Hamm (a highlight of anyone’s life, really) while he was hosting SNL for the first time. Amy was next-level pregnant (her baby basically had one foot out the door) and found out during the rehearsal of a Mad Men sketch that her doctor had just died:

“I was due the next day. So it’s my first kid, I’m in a Mad Men outfit, I turn to everybody and I hysterically start crying, and a really pregnant woman crying is terrifying. So, juicy tears just like squirting out of my eyes. And it was like the punch line to a joke, it’s like, my doctor just died and I’m due tomorrow. And Jon Hamm, who I am just getting to know, comes over and puts his hands on my shoulder and is like, ‘This is a really important show for me. I’m gonna need you to get your shit together.’ And I laughed so hard, I probably peed myself – I believe that going through crying to laughing adds like five years to your life.”

That’s a lovely story, but it sounds like she cleaned it up a bit at the request of her publishers. I bet the original version went something like this:

“Shit was bad and I couldn’t stop crying. Then all of a sudden, I felt something heavy resting on my shoulder. I turned around and saw a giant penis. It spoke no words; it simply looked at me as if to say ‘Please, gaze upon my beauty and forget your troubles. For I am The Hammaconda, sent from heaven above to comfort you in your time of need.’ Then it picked up my suitcase and drove me to the hospital.”
