Oddly Enough Blog

News, but not the serious kind

A reader needs my help…

April 15, 2010

Blog Guy, I’m a regular reader of your blog, and I need a personal favor.

Sorry, I can’t really get involved with helping people, I’ve got a lot of readers.

UKRAINE/Please! My daughter is going to Washington DC, and I know you live there. She doesn’t know a soul, and I’m hoping you can help her meet some nice young men.

Gosh, I’m not comfortable with….

I’ll be honest, she’s a bit eccentric. She wears a huge feathered bird in her hair. Her eyes look like some kind of space alien, and she uses strange make-up.

She wears her hair in multi-colored braids, and she tends to like homemade outfits made from knotted hemp….

She’s made some mistakes. She did hard time for manslaughter and arson, and held up a convenience store…

Yikes. Look, I’d really like to help, especially for the daughter of a regular reader, but I don’t…

Here, Blog Guy, here’s a picture of her, so you can spot her at the airport.

Well, why didn’t you SAY so! If I can’t help a faithful reader, then for heaven’s sake, who CAN I help!

Thanks. I’ve already received more than 62,000 offers to meet this poor young woman at the airport. Looks like we’ll have to organize a caravan.

The rumors must be true: The rumors that the Blog Guy was a “D” student.

Lemme guess – the “mug” handles convinced you…

Let’s just say the reader could produce two very powerful reasons to convince Robert…

Those are the biggest jugs I’ve seen on a model yet. It seems she might actually make a better living in a slightly different type of employment…

Eh, if you have to go through all that just to get to the boobies then it’s not really worth the trip.

If she got rid of the alien eyelashes then maybe it would be a consideration.

BG, maybe you could introduce me to her two friends? ;-)

LMR would have screamed “Wowie Mugs”….

You know, I wondered what Yulia Tymochenko was doing, now that she’s no longer Ukranian Prime Minister.
Err, that bird has nice, umm, wings?

Real women don’t have giant fake boobs, are so skinny that you can’t see them from side-on, and certainly do not walk around with a Peacock Pinata on their head.

Hmmm…. We’re supposed to be looking at the hairstyle! I rather like some of these:

Am I going to be the only nitpicker to call out RB?
Not “who can I help” but “whom can I help” — objective case.

Although RB perhaps had a different objective, or perhaps two, in mind.

Yes, you are.

That bird can sit on my, oh, nevermind.

Looks like she’s smuggling bocce balls…

*yawn*

Let me know when you guys come up with some interesting comments. I’ve heard all this before.

Posted by LMR | Report as abusive
 

You’ve heard a man say he liked some of the hair styles? Wow. You really have heard it all.

Are those mugs really even that attractive to you guys? They don’t look even in the slightest bit real, and to be honest, I’m sure would be just plain uncomfortable, for her and anyone who was … well … assisting her.

Posted by LMR | Report as abusive
 

LMR, no, I don’t find her particularly attractive. (And yes, Baz, I do have big hands.) I don’t find attractive women who conjure images of a safety net.

Posted by DoctorDoll | Report as abusive
 

@Ifly: LOL ok whatever makes you happy :D

@LMR: **slap** now wake up buddy :-|

Posted by fwd079 | Report as abusive
 

Well LMR, those mugs, from what little we can see, look nice and plump and firm and obviously fake. The rest is left up to the imagination. I mean who knows really, when she takes off whatever it is that she is wearing, those things could feature a portrait of Lyle Lovett on one and Susan Boyle on the other.

So sometimes some things are just better left up to the imagination.

Unca, I would rather she let the bird use her head as a crapper than the bird using my car.

In my opinion, anything more than a handful is a waste.

I’m just sayin’.

:P

E, I agree. And I would say that even if I had hands as small as the rain….

Welcome Harold ! Everytime someone is nitpicking about grammar, anywhere in the world, it makes me feel better about once having drunkenly heckled a magician for his inappropriate use of was/were during a card trick.

Gosh, CrowGirl. At least you didn’t beat him to death with a shovel, as I did to that plumber who confused uninterested and disinterested….

Regarding female anatomy: It’s not the size of the wave; it’s the motion of the ocean.

I personally wouldn’t want children who had stretch marks on their lips!

No, but I did later loudly accuse him of just doing tricks rather than being magic. I was a little vehement. It’s possible that I may not have been on my best behaviour that night…

Emmmm…. So… Are those boobs attractive to the men on this blog or not?

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive
 

Well, out of the past 20 Blogs by our illustrious leader, only one has generated more comments. That one also utilized cleavage. I am betting that this particular blog will surpass that one, so I would say that, yes, the breasts, while obviously fake, are still attractive. That’s why we all keep coming back to this photo.

Posted by Billl | Report as abusive
 

Now that you say it, Bill, I hadnt really seen the number of comments…

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive
 

Bill, I personally keep coming back to this blog for the uncanny ability of us all to make a conversation out of practically anything, regardless of how dull a subject, or subjects in this case… I meant, left subject and right subject…

Posted by justM | Report as abusive
 

Fair enough, justM. But we are approaching the magic number.

By the way, those breasts are not the subject of the Blog; they are the objects.

Shra, we may never approach the number of comments generated by your Birthday Blog. Wear your Crown with pride.

Posted by Billl | Report as abusive
 

Bill, you are right on all counts: those things are really objects, although not of my personal interest…
