Shaq Broke Out a 'Charlene Barkley' Cutout, Almost Nailed the Tommy Tutone Joke

By Mike Cardillo

Charles Barkley made a fat joke about the women of San Antonio earlier this month and brought it up again tonight during TNT’s broadcast of the Western Conference Finals on Monday night. Master humorist Shaquille O’Neal trolled, or at least tried to troll Barkley with a “Charlene Barkley” cutout at halftime, including singing some lyrics of Tommy Tutone’s seminal, 1981 classic, “867-5309/Jenny.”

Shaq was only off by one number, so I’m not going to hold it against him. It’s the effort that counts.

Guess: this song has gotten a lot of airplay on the set of the various Adam Sandler comedies Shaq has appeared in over the last decade.

Better guess: tonight is the first time the words “Shaquille O’Neal” and “Tommy Tutone” have appeared together in the same sentence.
