News, but not the serious kind

We lose more Santas this way…

December 20, 2008

Blog Guy, I know you sometimes do fantasy photos for your readers. Do you have any money left in your 2008 budget?

Some, and I have to spend it by December 31. What do you have in mind?

A guy riding a bicycle underwater.

I should be able to manage that.

Hey, not so fast. I want him dressed as Santa Claus.

You’re very weird. Anything else?

Can you throw in a live shark?

You know what sharks cost in December? Oh, okay.

Can he be holding a waterproof copy of Dogs Playing Poker?

Sorry, that puts me over-budget. Just take this and shut up.

Be somebody. Join the Oddly Enough blog network!

Why on Earth would ANYONE dress up in a Santa suit, get on a bike and go into a shark aquarium?!

well, I looked so… the answer is that people will want to see it.If I were at Sea World, I would have tried to get a look. Then again, we are members so anything out of the norm is cool by us since we see the norm regularly.Nice job!

Circumstantial evidence that even King Neptune may be prone to shout those immortal words, “Hey, you kids! GET OFF MY LAWN.”
