Extra grease on those onion rings!

February 28, 2009

Blog Guy, we’ve all read a about how thin those haute couture models are. How do they keep themselves that way? Why aren’t they hungry?

Because they think they’re eating whatever they want.

Excuse me? How does that work?

Look at the photo below, taken backstage during Milan Fashion Week a couple of days ago. Those models are deciding what to order from the “Cheesy-Greasy Fry and Pie Pig-Out Model Menu.”

I don’t see anything printed on there.

You’re not a model. But those women see crispy warm deep-fried onion rings, double-rich cheesecake, pastrami sandwiches… No wonder they look excited.

But wait! What makes them hallucinate like that?

That’s not for me to say, but the fresh surgical bandages on their skulls are a clue.

Stick it to the man! Join the Oddly Enough blog network!

Blog Guy,
Where do I get that surgery? Will it also let me drink all I want without a hangover?

So just to make sure I understand, you come to a blog called “Oddly Enough,” filled with funny photos and 100-word bits of sarcasm, in search of useful articles?

Gripe, moan, bite me. You see the words ‘Oddly Enough,’ and you have no clue as to what this blog is about?

Robert Basler, to me, writes one of the funniest short set of blogs that I have ever had the joy of being a reader of!

So, please? Save your ever so witty comments for where they are needed. As in, when you are trying to find a job, and your never to be employer fires you without hiring you.

And Mr Basler, I have figured out what happened to the print on the menu.

The models have chowwed down on those delicious looking words!

Even if its called Oddly Enough…this didnt even make sense if you actually look at the pic. It like putting up a pic a someone drinking from an apple juice bottle and saying “omg the economy is so bad people are drinking urine”. translation, just because you call it sarcasm doesnt mean we’ll call it funny. (less is more sometimes…dont try so hard)

“…so bad people are drinking urine”. That’s funny!

It is really stupid article…

Look out Rob! I think guy11288 is after your job! It seems he has figured out your formula!

I actually LOL’d at his urine comment. “Just because you think you are writing a disapproving screed doesn’t mean I won’t find it funny…”

Isn’t stupid the point? With all the seriousness in the world it is fun to stop by this blog and see silly.

Wait .. this isn’t real news?!

Damnit! No wonder my boss fired me when I showed up sporting the “latest fashion” of adult underros.
