RUSSIA/

Blog Guy, I hear your career advice is great. I’m graduating soon, and I’ll be looking for something good. My dad always said I should have a desk job.

Then I’ve got a great career path for you. Check out this guy in the photo. That could be you.

desk job crop 240Um, not to complain or anything, but I don’t think that’s what my dad meant. This guy is HOLDING a desk in his teeth.

Well sure. What do you think I’m doing as I write this blog? You think they let ME sit down? What’s your point?

Just that maybe this guy could find something better.

What, and leave show business?

Look, Blog Guy, I don’t want to be rude, but don’t  you think this is a little pathetic?

No. I think that dude you can see in the crowd using his phone to take a PICTURE of this guy, now HE’S pathetic.

He is not taking a picture, he is shaving his nose hairs.

Great comrades! Glad we won the “big one” and we didn’t end up having to fight these guys. I can imagine having a platoon of snarling chompers that could bite through bayonets and catch bullets from the air.

The camera phone guy’s name is Kaczynski. Or something like that.

They must strengthen their teeth by eating rye bread.

Woww. I hope that guy’s just texting ‘cuz it’s the only thing to do in this situation. He looks trapped. Maybe txting the police for help?

I wouldnt want to go out to dinner with him….

Well, no. Because he’d be nibbling the table while I was indulging in serious detailed menu reading. But maybe I’d catch up with him for a drink later.

This could work out quite well.
“I’m sorry Miss Crow, we don’t have a table for this evening.”
“It’s OK, I’ve brought my own.”
He’d be a very cheap date. :)

He could bring the chairs, too. Looks like he has two ears that aren’t doing anything. If only humans were equipped with an anatomical feature that would make it easy to carry things, something like feet, but not used for walking….
