Will Ferrell And Zach Galifianakis Announce Chicago Cubs' Lineup, Recycle Pet Jokes

With Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis in town to promote a new movie, the Chicago Cubs decided to steal a page from the New Orleans Hornets' book and have the comedic stars introduce the starting lineups for the North Siders' Thursday tilt with the Miami Marlins. It was only a few months ago that Ferrell zinged the Chicago Bulls during a date in the The Big Easy, and apparently he's versatile enough to lend his wit to baseball, too.

Only one problem: he recycled the same jokes! Or, at least one. Ferrell once introduced Luol Deng by saying he "collects rare birds and has a pet dolphin named Chachi". When Bryan LaHair was introduced on Wednesday, Ferrell noted "he loves playing the banjo and doing tricks with his pet dog Chachi."

OK, then. Last time, Deng's dolphin got it's own fake Twitter account. Is @ChachiLaHair next? Video, after the jump...

Special shouts-out to longtime bro Phil Barnes, who is the strapping young man holding the microphone up to the comedians' faces. Doin' big things.
