Yikes! They’re scarin’ the visitors!

January 19, 2009

Blog Guy, you did a recent blog piece about the Goofy Face Museum and Doughnut Shop opening a room of goofy tennis faces…

Stop! I know just where this is going.

Right. An agency that manages athletes for endorsements has attacked you for calling tennis players “naturally goofy people who enjoy making dumb faces.” The agency said that was an “outrageous thing to say about a very attractive group of people.”

Yeah, we have a difference of opinion. Anyway, they’re sending a hand-picked committee of five big-name tennis players to the Museum today to discuss their concerns with me.

I’m having my assistant dig out some photos of the five, so I’ll know when I see them.

Hey, Lonnie! We got any pix of some guy named David Nalbandian?

What are you lookin’ at? Join the Oddly Enough blog network!

These folks don’t spook me quite so much as it appears that Robert has discovered computerized invisible ink.

The civil thing, Bob, is to post a link where the translation software resides for the next post, “Sir, the Goofy Group is here now!”, (For which commenting is turned off).

@gwmc

….what?….

I think gwmc’s internet connection took a wrong turn from whatever planet he’s viewing this blog from.

No. We’re all on the same planet. Bob deleted the entry to which I referred. He screwed it up. He should respond.

You hear that, Bob? You just got called out! What now, blog guy!

An earlier, unfinished version of the post was accidentally published. When I saw it, I deleted it. Now can I get back to searing for stupid stories and photos?

[...] Guy, give us an update. A few days ago you were in big trouble for running funny pictures of tennis players. I believe some players were coming to talk to you [...]
