Come back with my money, Supergirl!

February 8, 2010

chemmy face 220Hey Blog Guy, you haven’t written much lately about the Goofy Face Museum and Doughnut Shop, which I know is your pride and joy. Got any new exhibits coming up?

As a matter of fact, yes. We’ve been in delicate and costly negotiations for weeks, to get a goofy-face shot of that British skier, Chemmy Alcott, ahead of the Winter Olympics. Here it is, for the first time ever!

Um, not to complain or anything, but that’s not a very goofy face.

Look, she’s a skier, not a weight-lifter or a tennis player. She’s doing her very best to look silly here, so cut her some slack. It took a two-day photo shoot just to come up with this one.

chemmy use this 240Blog Guy, you got screwed. Sports Illustrated has a cover shot of  her without her wig or false teeth, and her eyes are bulging out and her tongue is stuck to the ski lift. It’s REALLY goofy!

Damn you, Chemmy, with  your minty fresh toothpaste-commercial face! Come back here with my museum’s money! I KNEW you could do a whole lot better than this!

If I remember my super-hero history correctly…which I don’t….wasn’t Supergirl Supermans cousin? If that is so how did she get off Krypton before it blew up is Superman was allegedly the only survivor?

Son of Jor’el, kneel before Blog Guy!!

C’mon, why can’t we just stick to the goofy girl in the red hoodie? Can you get a shot of her voting in the Ukraine?

Well, at least Bob gave you some pictures of some guys to make you happy. Does that help with the nightmares?

IamNotSomebody, they are not the guys I asked for… and they could add to the nightmare than help it…

Are we sure the pictures at the bottom aren’t from the Live Colonoscopy Museum? I’m never going there. I’m with Shra, nightmares await me.

Damn Sarabelle, I was thinking of starting a Live Colonoscopy Museum but did the Goofy Face Museum and Doughnut Shop instead. I should have gone with my gut, so to speak.

DnD … LOL!

Sarabelle … got any good meds? Doughnuts?

Ya think if they had to strain so hard they would add more fiber into their diet!

Speaking of Baz’ smile…he smiles like the Mona Lisa. Like he has something up his sleeve. (And don’t say it’s your arm Baz, that wouldn’t be funny).

He he he… Comparing BG to Monalisa eh? Can just imagine his face instead of the lady’s with all the usual details… I mean BG in a deep neck gown… long hair… ha ha ha ha ha!! Made my day! :P

It is, I believe, called being enigmatic. (I had to look that one up! But, there.. I did it: my big word of the day!)

PilotGuy, I am with you on this. Either some more fiber or some mild laxatives at night, just before going to bed. Probably not a great idea the night before the big final game, to avoid the potential embarrassment.

Chemmy has the look of someone who is thinking “Just hurry up and take the damn photo already – it’s freezing out here!”.
As for the scary tennis players, I didn’t know that Metamucil sponsored a tournament, and if they don’t, then by the looks of it, they should.
