Go ahead, make my jour!

Blog Guy, I read that Clint Eastwood got a major honor from France on Friday, presented by French President Nicolas Sarkozy himself. Awesome!

Yeah, but Sarkozy tried being an even tougher guy than Eastwood, and got all up in his face like he was gonna punch him. It wouldn’t surprise me if…

Blog Guy, you’re pathetic. Sarkozy and Eastwood got along great. If you read the caption, you’ll see the “tough guy” Sarkozy photo was from some other event, three weeks ago.

Okay, this is happening WAY too often, that readers are learning stuff from the real captions. I think it’s time for extreme measures on my part.

You’ll start reading them yourself?

Nah, I’ll just stop running them.

Do you know what I’d like to see? Sarzoky in a little elf suit and hat. Don’t you think he looks like one of Santa’s elves, particularly in that bottom photo?Don’t mind me, I’ll just get back to my day job, and my pills…

LMR, I think that is completely inappropriate an attire for such a man, a Head of State.Probably he’d look more appropriate if dressed up as one of Sauron’s assistants!

Sarkozy is hanging on to Eastwood’s arm because he doesn’t want to fall off the box he’s standing on.
