He must be quite a guy…

November 20, 2009

You all know me, I’m not a judgmental kind of guy. But on some rare occasions I DO form strong opinions, and gosh darn it, if I’m not careful I’m afraid I’ll go after somebody with this pickle fork I’m holding.

What do I see on our photo file? Levi Johnston at TWO glitzy Los Angeles galas in one evening, including the GQ magazine “Men of the Year” party.

In one of the photos, he’s shown with his “bodyguard.” I am not making this up.

I won’t bother telling you who this guy is – if you’ve been awake at some point over the past 18 months you already know – but cripes! Men of the year? Levi Johnston?

I can only presume, then, that former presidential candidate John Edwards, South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford, Lenny and Squiggy and Ratso Rizzo, all equally deserving, were not available?

Hey look, Levi, you ever seen a pickle fork? Say, what time does your bodyguard go home?

Can I assume from the facts that Johnson’s Johnson was impaling, hence in consideration for Man of the Year? Is that too many Johnsons?

Robert, I am afraid I disagree with you on this one. A guy who has the enormous ability from being an unknown loser nobody to being an internationally known loser somebody deserves to be recognised publicly for that uncanny ability!

sorry, I think I have to rephrase that…”… who’s gone from being an unknown loser nobody to being an internationally known loser nobody, and did so only through having stupidly unprotected sex …”

Will I be judge harshly if I admit that I don’t know who he is?

Well, Little Miss Random, I would describe who he is to you, but the language I would use would be unpleasant and might not be acceptable on this web site.

Oh wait, I figured it out by the tags ‘Sarah Palin’ and ‘Stupid’.

Don’t mess with Levi. His bodyguard will get upset, have a heart attack, and fall on you.
