Not just another pretty face…

October 16, 2008

Blog Guy, I was intrigued by your item this week on the Oddly Enough Goofy Face Museum and Doughnut Shop. Is that a real place?

mccain-1010-200.jpgIt’s as real as anything else you’ll read about in this blog.

I was wondering why you have John McCain but not Barack Obama?

Several readers asked about this. Obama doesn’t make goofy faces, at least not while we’re looking. Of COURSE we at the Museum and Doughnut Shop want to include him. We’ve even sent one of our Goofy Face Coaches to follow him around and offer some pointers.

Well, okay, that seems fair.

But meanwhile, you can help, too. Go to Obama’s rallies and make the most grotesque faces you can, until he gets the idea.

Turn the economy around. Join the Oddly Enough blog network!

That photo is proof positive that Barack is a knot head.

Can’t you show us the other half of the photo of McCain. I bet Obama is standing behind him if not with a goofy face than at least with a goofy smile.

She’s shocked because she’s just hit her face against the pane of glass she didn’t see. The end of her nose is slightly compressed and her hat brim has been pushed back.

Has John just seen the rabbit that Jimmy Carter saw from the row boat?
