Ultimate fantasy photo throw-down?

November 16, 2009

Blog Guy, prepare for your ultimate throw-down! You’re good at coming up with fantasy photos for your readers. Do you think there’s any limit to your archive?

None whatsoever.

Okay, I’m drawing random names from two different drums. One contains the stars of the old sitcom “Seinfeld,” and the other contains everybody else who ever lived. First, I’d like to see, uh, Jason Alexander, with, let’s see, U.S. Senator Richard Lugar.

Here you go. This one is from last Friday, unless you prefer one of their earlier pairings.

That’s stunning! Okay, now I want Jerry Seinfeld with – aha! – Shimon Peres, the President of Israel!

Okay, check this out.

My God! You’re diabolical! Next I want Julia Louis-Dreyfus, with former first lady Mamie Eisenhower.

Oh, sorry, only two requests per reader. I can’t make exceptions. It’s a shame, too, because that one is a real doozy…

Is Seinfeld doing a George Clooney here? Or maybe a Berlusconi?

I am also requesting your Julia Louis – Dreyfus/Mamie Eisenhower picture!

No, Shra, Jason Alexander is doing himself; it’s Richard Lugar who’s doing Seinfled… the problem is he’s funnier than Jerry proper, which is the reason why he was never invited to cameo on the show!

And, of course, is the reason why Jerry had to go international to try and keep the number one spot!

Sorry Tim, but now it’s too close to Thanksgiving….

Sorry guys, but I do believe Mamie Eisenhower is dead.

She is unable to pose for a photo, unless you have a backhoe and know where she’s buried.

Of course Mamie is dead. But she did overlap with Julia several years, and pictures were taken. I can say no more.

Or else you’ll have to kill us?

Or else the members of the White Hat Conspiracy will come and take you away?

It’s getting more mysterious by the minute.

Mamie Eisenhower is buried in Abilene, KS.
Julia Louis-Dreyfuss is buried at CBS.

I am beginning to think that the White Hat Conspiracy may be true.. Coz I have a white floppy hat meself… :P

LMR, what is getting me scared is that not only is there a White Hat conspiracy, it also appears there’s a Stretched-Out Hand conspiracy. How else could you explain both Jason Alexander and Jerry Seinfeld have theirs like that in these shots? I’m sure it’s some kind of signal they send to each-other via blog pictures… shhhhh!!!
