So then Bill says to Barack…

August 31, 2009

Quick quiz: Former president Bill Clinton is saying to President Barack Obama…

a) I’m not kidding you, Barack, at Quiznos they’ve got a Primo Meatball sub THIS long, full of seasoned meatballs and zesty marinara!

b) PLEASE act like you’re listening to me, Barack! I don’t wanna have to talk to Hillary and George!

c) So that Kim Jong-il dude has a pumpkin head this big! It’s SO gross!

d) Psssst! Barack, this is a Catholic service – I’m pretty sure it’s time to applaud!

Is it just me, or does it look like Hillary is giving George W. a peck on the cheek in the background.

Robert, how do you come up with so many witty ideas for this blog. Humor is all in taking chances I guess. Like, making light of the goings on at someone’s funeral, not more than a few days after it has taken place. I suppose some might see that as a bit tasteless. But not your audience. They know that because Bill Clinton is somewhat overweight, for example, a joke about a sub is priceless. Or a joke about how to some “Kim Jong-Il” has an odd shaped head. Even more impressive are the responses you illicit, such as Mookey’s well crafted joke about the anatomy of asian women.

It was my pleasure to take a few moments out of my day to praise your work.

@Ben, Hillary is actually telling Dubbya and missus to excuse her husband for going at it again, trying to grab the spotlight by talking to Obama instead of paying attention to the services!
