News, but not the serious kind
Who ordered the cream of bream?
I swear, some days it seems like all I do is settle bets for people. Everybody wants Blog Guy to judge their stupid bar bets, just because I have access to lavish media resources all over the world.
“Bob,” a reader writes in, “please settle a bet I have with my great-grandmother. In a fight between a sumo wrestler and a fish, who would win?”
That’s an easy one. We set up a match between a sumo grand champion and not one, but TWO red sea breams, and the sumo wrestler beat the snot out of them.
Another reader asks, “Bob, is there any truth to the rumor that supporters of Senator John McCain don’t cast shadows? I have a bet on this with my sister’s dog groomer.”
Yes reader, this photo from a McCain rally clearly shows they DO cast shadows. I believe you’re mixing this up with the fact that they show no reflection in mirrors, which of course IS true.
“Blog Guy” another reader asks, “I bet my haberdasher a ton of money that you didn’t spend more than ten minutes on this post today. I think you just grabbed the first couple of dumb photos you saw, and made up stuff.”
Congratulations reader, this could be your lucky day….
