Okay, I thought this was a goofy idea 17 months ago, and I haven’t changed my mind.
Back in mid-2010, I made fun of a Russian science experiment where six guys were about to “simulate” a trip to Mars, by spending 520 days in a mock “spaceship” on Earth.
Lamar, where did you get the models for today’s fashion show?
From my psychiatrist. They’re all in therapy for various things, so they’re happy to have the work.
Oh sure, Boss, most of the ones with violent tendencies turned down the gig. My shrink says one of these chicks is being treated for narcolepsy.
It’s been a few weeks since I’ve written about any new signs of that onrushing Apocalypse, so I foolishly thought things might be getting better.
Let’s see here. Roman Catholic bishops in Wisconsin are urging their parishioners not to bring weapons TO CHURCH, now that a new law permits state residents to carry concealed firearms and electric weapons such as stun guns or tasers.
Jobless veterans say military experience is not valued
Rick Combs, a 27-year old who retired as a Sergeant in the Army, says he was given management training in the military as part of becoming a Sergeant. So far, that training has not translated into a comparable private-sector job.
Your writer doesn’t seem to have any knowledge of the military.
No one who is 27 years old can retire from the Army. One must serve a full 20 years to qualify for “retirement.” I doubt Combs joined at 7 years of age.
So, pal, what do you do for a living?
What do I DO? I am FABIO!
I am an actor and a model!
Oh! Have I seen you in anything?
Probably. I played the Handsome Man in “Scenes from a Mall,” the Blind Date in “Boogies Diner,” and I have done numerous cameos.
No. The short kind.
Hmmmm. You do look familiar.
I am also a spokesman.
Spokesman, huh? For what?
I can’t believe it’s not butter.
What, this stuff on our plate isn’t butter?
No. I am a spokesman for I can’t believe it’s not butter!
Ah, I don’t watch much TV.
Do you read? I write books and my bare chest is on the covers! Perhaps you have read “Rogue,” “Comanche,” “Viking…”
So, Blog Guy, as a keen observer of the political scene, what’s your take? Can Herman Cain be elected president at this point?
Because of the….
Exactly. Because of his name.
Now I’m confused. His name?
Of course. What did you think I meant? Check out the U.S. Bill of Rights, and you’ll see that nobody named Lemuel, Enoch or Herman is allowed to become president.
