It’s not exactly groundbreaking news to state that Dane Cook isn’t funny.
Typically, however, our response to his terrible jokes is to roll our eyes or shake our heads.
When it comes to Cook making quips about his relationship with Kelsi Taylor, though, we need to be restrained from calling the police.
Cook, you see, if 46 yeas old.
Taylor is 19 years old.
The pair went public with their inappropriate relationship in January, at which time Cook referred to Taylor as a “gift.”
This week, meanwhile, in an Instagram Q&A with fans (We know, right? Who knew that Dane Cook had any fans?!?), the so-called comedian responded to a number of inquiries about his unusual romance.
How did they meet, for example?
“At a game night I host at my place,” Cook replied. “We were friends for a while and soon after fell in like with each (other) and then upgraded to love.”
So… they were friends for awhile?
And they actually started dating when Taylor was 18?
Which means Cook was in his early 40s and isn’t just sleeping with a teenager, but he’s sleeping with a teenager who he knew since she was maybe a sophomore in high school?
That is disgusting, borderline illegal and most definitely not a subject to joke about.
But Dane Cook has never met a bad joke he didn’t tell, so he continued…
What advice can Cook give to others in a relationship that involves a large age difference?
“The only thing you have to do is plan that your deaths will be somewhat far apart,” he wrote back.
Do their families approve of the relationship?
“I love her family and we are pretty close and go to dinner and hang,” Dane responded, adding:
“My family pretty much all died years ago but @_courtneycook_ my sister likes Kelsi a lot.”
What do they like most about each other?
“Kelsi is smart, kind, creative, loyal & honest. As for me I think Kelsi would say I’m tolerable.”
Back in February, in an Instagram caption, Cook noted that Taylor “is warm hearted, smart, sincere & more than anything else we just click.”
He added at this time:
“I have to say I’m the happiest I’ve been in a long time in both my career & personal life.”
Kelsi is an aspiring singer who just released her new album, “Fear of Yourself.”
She has also performed background vocals for Grammy nominees such as Demi Lovato and Little Big Town.
Cook, meanwhile, has dated such stars as Jessica Simpson, Nicole Scherzinger, Julianne Hough and Raquel Houghton.
If Taylor makes him happy, that’s great we guess.
And it is conceivable that two people at these stages of their lives could find true love with one another. Once again… we guess.
But there’s also something sketchy and flat-out gross about a grown man sleeping with a teenager. There just is.
Anyone out there disagree?
