The stuff dream photos are made of…

Hey, Blog Guy, I’m here! Do¬† you recognize me?

I am in the presence of the Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come?

No, you dimwit. This isn’t “A Christmas Carol.” I’m the guy who sets up all those great fantasy photos for your readers, so I’m sorry to see it’s going away.

Well, thanks for all your good work. You’ve pulled off pictures I would have thought impossible, especially the ones involving world leaders.

Seinfeld, a show about bupkis…

Blog Guy, you have the most authoritative entertainment news anywhere, so I’m coming to you first about something I heard.

There’s a rumor that my all-time favorite sitcom, “Seinfeld,” is coming back to TV next season. Any chance it’s true?

Yule laugh, yule cry…

Blog Guy, what do you think is the biggest holiday for your blog?

Christmas, for sure. We celebrate it for most of the year. Not only that, we’re able to appreciate BOTH holidays.

You mean the religious Christmas and commercial Christmas?

No, I mean the magical goosebump childhood excitement Christmas, and the darkly absurd, “Look, somebody shot at Santa’s helicopter!” Christmas.

You mean that total stranger whose spam keeps landing in my rbasler e-mail account?

Your favorite posts of all time…

Photo

I mentioned a few days ago that this blog is going away soon, so it seems appropriate to take a look back at what readers clicked on the most.

I must say, this list of the top 10 posts for the past five years surprised me. But I can’t argue with our official traffic statistics, these little nicks by the snack room vending machine were definitely made by Lamar.

Nine ways to lose weight and live forever

People say to me all the time, “Bob, your blog is SO stupid, how do you get people to read it?”

These folks don’t understand how online journalism works. You can write anything you want, and if you put a good headline on it people will read it. Especially if you hint at immortality, easy weight loss or better sex.
