News, but not the serious kind
Quick, I’m gonna sneeze, Muammar!
Blog Guy, what can you tell us about yesterday’s meeting between Ukraine’s prime minister and Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi?
It was a fiasco. It seems his people asked her people what topics she would like to cover, and they said she ”always discussed issues.” Now, say that out loud, and it sounds just like TISSUES. Go ahead, try it.
“Care for a Kleenex, Madam Prime Minister.”
“Er, yes, thank you, Mr. Gaddafi I see you like the large white variety.”
“Oh yes, I don’t like the pastel-colored ones with lotion in them very much.”
“Very nice. These come out of the box easily, one at a time. May I take some more in case I need to blow my nose later?”
“But of course. Take four if you’d like. Now perhaps we should turn our attention to toilet tissue?”
And so it went, for hours. Then Gaddafi gave her a ceremonial nine-pack of Bounty, and she headed back home to Kiev…
Blog Guy, you’re spinning this whole insane story just because you have photos of Gaddafi with a fricking Kleenex box!
No! That’s a tissue of lies!
