Poking fun at his longtime pal, George Clooney had the Golden Globes audience members in stitches over Brad Pitt and his cane.

The “Up in the Air” actor took the stage at Sunday’s awards show, holding a cane by his side and making a joke at the expense of his “Fight Club” friend, who has been in need of the assistance since injuring his knee on a ski slope.

Before introducing Pitt’s film, “Moneyball,” Clooney held up the cane and said, “I have to give it back to him. He can’t make it to the bar otherwise.”

With that, the camera shot to Brad and his lovely partner, Angelina Jolie, who offered up a small chuckle at the comedic comment.
