Well, time to slap the old vodka bottle!

Blog Guy, I know you’re an expert on other cultures, and I have a question.

I just heard an Eastern European expression, “slapping the old vodka bottle.” Jeez, I’m really hoping that’s not a euphemism for…

No, it’s not. Relax. In some countries, they open a bottle of vodka by slapping the bottom until the cork comes out.

Pushing shakes for a sheikh?

OMG, Blog Guy! A few days ago, in an item about Paris Hilton helping open a shopping mall in Poland, you said, “Coming soon, Kim Kardashian appears at a milkshake bar opening in Dubai,” and here she is!

Who would have thought you were serious about that?

Come on, it wasn’t hard to predict. I mean, the woman was married less than two months ago, she is thought to be the highest-paid reality star on television, so why wouldn’t she go to Dubai to promote a milkshake bar? It just makes sense.

Opinionated rant?

Photo

It’s extremely disturbing when I come here for news and I find articles like this being promoted here. I left CNN (for the most part) and came to Reuters because I believe you are a better source for news. I strongly believe you are less biased, less opinionated, and just an overall better news source.

However, when I find posts like the one, it makes me question my decision. Promoting, and allowing, any opinionated rant claiming people are better based on their race or gender (in this case gender) is disgusting to see.

New iPhone? No Siri, Bob!

Photo

Blog Guy, I read your review of the new iPhone 4S the day it was released, and found it ridiculous. You bill yourself as one of the top technology bloggers in your zip code, and yet you didn’t even mention Siri, the phone’s incredible voice recognition feature, which answers questions and obeys commands.

I don’t think you even HAVE a 4S yet!

That’s where you’re wrong. I was just carrying on a conversation with Siri, and I’ll paste it into my blog to prove it.

Playing Pachelbel’s Cannon at my funeral?

Photo

Blog Guy, not to bring up a depressing topic, but have you made plans for what will be done with your body when you die?

I’m arranging that now, thanks to several readers who sent me info about a company called Holy Smoke. They put your cremated ashes into shotgun shells or rifle cartridges, so your friends can shoot you off. Even in death, you can be helping to kill some poor creature.

Oh, so this is a SERIOUS bike lane!

Okay, listen up, troops! I’ve got your duty assignments for the anti-Gaddafi army!

Smith, you’re riding in a tank. Jones, you’re a bombardier. Williams, you fire rocket-propelled grenades and blow up big stuff all day long. Johnson, you’re on Bike Patrol. Williams, you’re…
