The plot thickens: George Clooney lends a hand!

July 10, 2008

face-combo-one-220.jpgHey Blog Guy, last month some dude wrote in about a rumored conspiracy involving prominent newsmakers who communicate with each other through a secret hand gesture language. You said that wasn’t true.

Well, the rumors are growing, and we think the plot could go all the way to  the top. Yes, I mean George Clooney! The news media are aiding the conspirators, by running photos of the gestures so these people can’t be linked by phone calls and meetings.

Calm down. You obviously know nothing about the news media. What you’re suggesting would have to involve someone with a global audience who is so easily duped that he wouldn’t notice a consistent pattern. That would border on the moronic, wouldn’t it?
