Honey, how do you spell RSVP?

September 21, 2009

Blog Guy, I’m hosting a super-glitzy dinner party and I’m hoping you can come. The guest list includes Barack and Michelle Obama, Nelson Mandela, Angelina Jolie, Tina Fey, Bob Dylan, Pope Benedict, J.D. Salinger…

Can I sit next to Tina?

Sure, I guess. So you’ll be there? Great! It’s tonight at 8 p.m.

Are you INSANE? Tonight is the two-hour season premiere of House! Like I’m gonna be anyplace other than right in front of my TV at 8 p.m., with a very dry martini and a big bucket of fried chicken!

Let’s be reasonable, Blog Guy. What if I promise to put a big-screen television in my dining room so you can watch the whole thing while you eat?

No thanks, I’ve watched TV with the pope before. He talks all the time….

And let me ask you Mr. West, did you, by chance, enjoy those fish sticks?

Posted by Aaron | Report as abusive

Yes. I enjoy putting fish sticks in my mouth.

Another question, Mr. West, did Beyonce then go ahead and smack you in the face, by letting someone else take the crown for “Best Dinner Party Ever”?
Guess you ended up with the cake on your face… AGAIN!
