Meet Hulga, Queen of the Prom

April 30, 2010

Blog Guy, you said the Goofy Face Museum and Doughnut Shop was having some kind of a gala formal affair where you give out awards and stuff. What happened with that?

goofy stamp combo 180It’s coming. We only just found our Prom Queen, Hulga, the perfect young lady to reign at this great event along with Lamar, our longtime Goofmeister.

Then it took time to get the Postal Service to issue commemorative stamps with Hulga and Lamar, which go on sale next week. Here’s an advance look at a sheet of the attractive stamps.

Awesome! I can’t WAIT to buy my stamps and use them on my threatening letters and ransom notes and stuff! Where will they first go on sale?

Honduras. I wouldn’t try using them here.

So if we show up in person in Washington for the festivities, can we meet Hulga and have our picture taken with her?

That’s probably not a great idea. She’s, um, moody, and she didn’t come voluntarily.

Well, I’m not attending unless I can meet Hulga.

Sigh. I guess if you’ll sign a waiver, we can loosen her restraints for just a minute.

Come on now, the lady in the first photo is just ordering two Krispy Kreme medi-donuts, with extra sprinkles.
I mean, who DOESN’T look like that when around Krispy Kreme donuts (medi or original).
