Joey C. and Mark Wahlberg separated at birth?
If you’re like me, you may have found yourself wondering, “What do Joey C. and Mark Wahlberg have in common?” on more than one occasion.
Fear not, I have done a bit of research for you.
Well, for starters, they’re both in their 40s, their first names both consist of four letters, and their last names are both easy to misspell. But that is rookie stuff.
Joey is from Gloucester. Mark really loves Gloucester and spent time here filming the Perfect Storm….which Joey has seen!
Uncanny, right. But it doesn’t end there.
Mark’s brother was in The New Kids on the Block and Joey auditioned for The New Kids on the Block (I may have that part wrong…)
Mark was an underwear model for Calvin Klein….and Joey. Wears. Underwear.
I know what you’re thinking. It’s almost like they were separated at birth.
Mark made his big screen debut in the film Renaissance Man done by Penny Marshall. Joey once had a crush on Penny Marshall’s character Laverne from Laverne and Shirley. (That’s what I heard anyway).
According to our most recent Podcast, Joey would order a burger over
“Dog Shit, Seagull Shit, Crap on a Shingle, and Corned Beef and Cabbage”
and Mark owns the burger joint Wahlburgers along with his two brothers.
Joey has been to the new shopping mecca MarketStreet in Lynnfield (although was deterred by the long lines) and rumor has it that Wahlburgers will be opening there soon. (which may or may not be the real point of this post).
And then there’s the little 3rd nipple thing. Which, until yesterday, they both had.
So, if Wahlburgers is indeed opening in at MarketStreet, would you go? I think I might.
