Check out the shawl, y’all!

November 25, 2008

Blog Guy, you always have a lot to say about movie remakes. I’ve heard they’re going to redo those Sergio Leone “Spaghetti Westerns.”

Yes. The hot gossip is that President George Bush will take over the Clint Eastwood role. Look at the picture below.

Now see, I don’t believe that. But why IS Bush wearing that poncho, anyway?

Those ponchos were specially designed for the world leaders at s big weekend summit meeting in Peru.

Specially designed for leaders? Why, what is it called?

The “Honcho Poncho.” And you know what they called the big villa where they housed the leaders?

Don’t say it. Please don’t say it.

I have to. I can’t control myself. The “Poncho Villa.”
