The Runway’s Got Talent!

Photo

It’s the same old story, Lamar. We’ve got a major fashion show today, but we can’t afford to pay professional models. You always manage to come through with models on the cheap. Any luck?

Don’t worry, Boss, I got us a good group today, and they’re free.

FREE? Huzzah! But how did you work that?

Oh. Well, they’re under the impression we’re having a reality TV talent show, so they each get to do a little “act” on the runway.

UK’s Cameron rallies EU countries outside euro zone

At Wednesday’s summit, European leaders agreed a plan to provide debt relief for Greece, recapitalize European banks and boost the bloc’s rescue fund, though details have yet to be hammered out. Following a meeting of all EU members, Cameron held separate talks with some of the leaders of the 10 countries not in the euro zone; Sweden, Poland, Denmark and Czechoslovakia. ”

Your article mentions the country Czechoslovakia, which hasn’t existed for almost 20 years. I suppose the author meant Czech Republic.

In case some of you missed it because of the freak snowstorm, I’m going to mention an unusual political story from Saturday. It involves Herman Cain, one of the front-runners for the Republican Party’s presidential nomination.

According to the Associated Press, Cain said he will “dial back” his campaign and media appearances in order to avoid missteps.

Whoa! Did you see that, Clancy? Looked like Pope Benedict on that train that just went by!

Nah, it couldn’t have been, Lamar.That’s an express and the Pope takes the local.

Best of the month: my own Oktoberfest?

Photo

It’s time once again for my monthly blog traffic stats, and I see that October was kind of a bittersweet time.

Two of my 10 most popular items were farewells, one to Sarah Palin who isn’t running, and one to Muammar Gaddafi, who isn’t doing anything.
