LOS ANGELES – Amy Poehler and Tina Fey have announced that they will be beginning yet another joint venture together with the opening of a new learning resources center geared toward helping women that don’t need any help from anybody to understand their relationships with the platonic life partners that they have difficulty doing anything without.
The announcement of the opening of The Poehler-Fey Sisters Doin’ it For Themselves With a Little Help From Their Friends Institute came as the two prepare to host the Golden Globes together Sunday night, which in turn followed their co-adoption of a Liberian war orphan. “We just have a special kind of soulmate-symbiosis with each other that really aids us in our quest to be the sovereigns of our own individual media empires,” the two women stated together in creepy, harmonic, Shining-twins style unison.
Fey and Poehler have been collaborating since their beginning days in the Chicago improv scene. Since then they’ve worked together at Saturday Night Live (where they shared joint anchorship of the Weekend Update segment), co-created the Oscar-winning film Baby Mama, and successfully disposed of the body of a drifter that they sex-murdered together. It should be pointed out that Fey and Poehler have also separately been the centers of their own sitcoms. That both feature characters based directly on the other. It’s… It’s complicated, you guys.
The P.F.S.D.I.F.T.W.A.L.H.F.T.F.I. is scheduled to open its first location in New York in 2015, with a Los Angeles location to follow. Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes have already agreed to lead a series of workshops for the center that will be geared toward men with codeindependence issues.
