News, but not the serious kind

I’m Mr. Bozo, I’ll be your attorney…

March 16, 2010

So Alan, another Monday morning at the office. Whatcha got going on today?

fashion red suits crop 280Oh don’t even ask, Gordon! I got an Executive Board meeting all day to discuss the IBM acquisition.

That sounds awful, man. Yeah, I’ve got a visit from the SEC regulators. Those guys put me to sleep.

I hear you. I think I might already be late for the Board meeting, but I can’t see my wristwatch because these sleeves hang down 18 inches past my hands. My tailor says that’s how they’re wearing them now.

PORTUGAL/That’s pretty strange, Alan. I just picked up this new suit, and MY tailor says they’re wearing sleeves four inches ABOVE the wrist I wonder who’s right?

Well, at least we know that classic pinstripe suits are finally giving way to red and white polka-dots, so we’re ahead of the curve on that one. Look sharp, here comes the CEO….

At least the “attorney” on the right has the GREAT BIG HANDKERCHIEF act going. How many times in court have I wanted to pull out one of those, dab my streaming eyes, and blow my nose very, very noisily. And then, it would be time to pull out the tiny violin out of my brief case….

And my whole law firm, with GREAT BIG BRIEF CASES, could pile out of a tiny, little Lexus (or Mercedes)on the courthouse steps….

Just let go of it, Doc. The profession is changing….

I think someone messed up on the footwear, though – those shoes actually seem to fit the models.

It’s Tuesday morning and I started the day with egg on my car.

Literally.

Someone egged my car last night and I am beyond pissed off.

Arms are gonna get broken if I find out who did it.

Basler…. I am gonna get in touch with whoever is haunting you and make sure that you dont get any sleep tonight…..
Mr.Pilot… you know me, dont you? I wouldnt ever egg your car….now, if it was Basler’s car, then maybe I would… I mean, I REALLY would!(Kidding, Basler!)

As for these clowns… fwd.. I had rather see you in them clothes… I am sure you would be better eye candy then these gents here…
Maybe Mr.Pilot could accompany you as “Alan” ?

Speaking of being haunted, I think I have a ghost “living” with me. There is often a “cold spot” in my kitchen (usually in the fridge, in fact,) “disembodied voices” in the vicinity of my telephone, an “orb” outside my back door (usually on moonlit nights). Gotta be spooks. What else could explain these supernatural events?

The world is full of the unexplainable. Take for example, the fact that the Brooklyn Bridge is in — of all places — Brooklyn! What are the odds of that happening?

Sorry Doc, but I can top that. Did you know that Lou Gehrig actually died of Lou Gehrig’s disease? You can look it up if you don’t believe me.

Shra my dear if it was you I would be more impressed that you tossed an egg clear across the pond and managed to hit my car dead-on than I would be angry. I mean that’s skill!

Hell yeah I would accompany fwd079 as “Alan”. After you go to the birthday party of your nephew, we can hit the birthday party of my nephews! :)

Mr. B., so which came first then, Lou Gehrig or Lou Gehrig disease?

Heck, Shra I’ll help you egg Baz’s car :P He’s gone and made me cry!!

Those models…srsly? I mean..SRSLY??? The fashion industry needs to get real, grow up and get a life!!!

ifly, hope you find out who egged your car. That’s rotten! (The egging I mean, not the eggs)

I hope it wasn’t rotten eggs.

Yes, I’ve heard that about Lou Gehrig. What are the odds, Baz? Coincidence? I think not.

REALLY, Unca? I had a ’69 Mustang, too. Yellow with a black top. Wish I still had it.

Were they free range?

The man on the right of the photo is wearing the wrong tie / cravat thing.

No Iam, the eggs were not rotten, just the kids that threw them.

I know it doesn’t compare to a Mustang, but my first car was a ’70 Cutlass. I loved that car, but being a teenage driver, I beat the snot out of it. I had a tank of a car with a huge engine…. yeah I was stupid with it. I still miss her! :(

@Ifly: Cool…sounds like a plan :D

Am I the only one who thinks Bozo & brother are good looking?

I just love your fashion advise, Robert. I would have never thought of wearing this kind of thing to a board meeting! Just you wait ’till I get the wife to look at this! Yeah!!!
