Jon Hamm and Ray Romano are doing warring impressions of each other

Jon Hamm and Ray Romano are both funny, talented people, but they are also both above the age of 40, which means one thing: they play golf. And since they are famous, they play golf together. (This is how the world works.) A few months ago, Hamm was on The Tonight Show, where he displayed some of his low-key but masterful comic chops doing monosyllabic Ray Romano impressions, groaning “ah” and “c’mon” in that familiar bubble-throated tone. You will not believe this, but Jimmy Fallon found it all extremely funny.

It turns out that, while Romano is famously loved by everyone, he is not a man to cross. He has a long memory, and has been sharpening his blade for months now, waiting to extract his revenge. On last night’s Tonight Show, he finally found his moment, calling Hamm a “son of a bitch” and then laying into his own impression of the star:

It’s slightly off-putting to hear Romano emit a sound that is not his own weird voice, but this blood-feud against Hamm demanded it. You do not insult Ray Romano’s golf game on national television.
