Looks like I didn’t get my wish…

October 6, 2008

trevi-full-240.jpgBlog Guy, all my life I dreamed of a Rome vacation. Last week I finally got there. I went to the famed Trevi fountain, and LIZA MINNELLI was there! She wouldn’t shut up, so my dream trip was ruined!

This doesn’t surprise me. The exact same thing happened to me at the Taj Mahal, the Great Wall, and some lounge in Las Vegas. She’s showing up all over.

But here’s what most people don’t know. Standard contracts with tour operators have a so-called “Liza Minnelli clause,” which mandates a full refund if this occurs. So demand your money back, and tell ’em Bob sent you.

Don’t think so much. Join the Oddly Enough blog network.

I just came across your blog today. It is brilliant; I even bookmarked it – something I do not do very often.

…In other news, Liza Minelli was on hand in Rome today to herald the birth of the Antichrist with a little song and dance….
