Later on, we’ll conspire…

November 29, 2009

Blog Guy, thanks to your readers, by now most people are aware of a major plot involving prominent people like Brad Pitt, Jake LaMotta, Madonna, Salma Hayek…

Members of their secret society identify themselves to each other by wearing distinctive white hats, as you have shown repeatedly.

Now, the blogosphere is ablaze with rumors that you’ve uncovered a major new twist in the conspiracy.

Yes, I’m writing this from an undisclosed location, and I’m in great danger, but the truth needs to get out.

Have a look at these photos from Queen Elizabeth’s recent visit to Bermuda. It’s a regular white hat orgy!

At this rate, look for Jake LaMotta to show up at Buckingham Palace any day now.

This is very interesting. Blog Guy, not long ago you yourself were making fun of people who believe in conspiracy theories, calling them nutjobs.

That was before I learned this one really exists. I must be sane or I wouldn’t have a blog, would I? Plus, this could be my only chance to meet Salma Hayek.

Shocking! BG, you may be on to something really big here. I have not seen a single white hat since I have been in Afghanistan. Maybe that’s part of the problem? Is a white hat surge part of the Administration’s big plan?By the way, what exactly does this conspiracy do anyway? Are they seeking world peace (whirled peas)? An end to hunger? More odd blogs? Surely they have some honorable purpose? (Yes, I called you Shirley). Please, enlighten us, since we all come here to laugh, er, learn.

Of course, one has to be rich, to keep them there hatties purely white, you know.I prefer a nice black fedora. I can change the pick up trucks oil AND wear my black fedora.That is, if I feel like changing my oil. As a matter of fact, when I want my Bentleys oil changed, I always call on my butler Alfred to do the honors.Miss Betty! Coffee, if you please! Chop chop!Maids are hard to choose correctly, aren’t they, Mr Robbie?

That’s a good question, Dave. I’m trying to ask Salma what their plan is. Her people gave me her home phone number, but I’m having trouble with this 555 prefix….

This conspiracy is getting more and more frightening by the day. Today I was afraid of leaving the house. Who knows – tomorrow I could be in bed with tissue boxes on my feet using my white hat as a shield against all those who might attempt to enter.

I feel like I’m in the twilight zone. 24 hours later and there’s still no more comments on this blog. Should I be worried? Are the white hats coming for me?
