Top 100 reasons I’m not on the list…
Blog Guy, have you seen the Time Magazine list of the 100 Most Influential People in the World? I’m surprised you’re not on it, you know, what with your blog, your Goofy Face Museum and Doughnut Shop, your radio talk show, your tap-dance video….
Don’t EVEN get me started on that! It turns out I was number 101!
Golly. To come SO close!
Tell me about it. I got the famous Time Magazine Consolation Letter:
“Dear Bob, we regret there wasn’t room for you on our Top 100 List because we had to include such household names as Dominique Strauss-Kahn, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Sheik Khalifa bin Zayed al-Nahyan and Sandra Bullock.”
The consolation letter goes on to say they will bump me up to actually being on the list if one of the other people does something really awful and is de-listed in shame and disgrace.
So I guess it’s possible I could still make it. I’m talking to YOU, Lady Gaga!
