Put me in, Coach, I’m ready!

goofy clinton 490

Blog Guy, we’re all aware that there is tough competition among contenders for the summer exhibition at your Goofy Face Museum and Doughnut Shop there in Washington. A few days ago you published the all-time goofiest Michelle Obama photo, which seems impossible to beat. Has Hillary Clinton just given up on winning the contest?

goofy clinton 2 260Far from it. Clinton has hired world-famous goofy face coach Hamid Karzai and is working long hours with him to perfect her best faces.

Not THE Hamid Karzai, President of Afghanistan?

Let me check. By golly, yes, it turns out he IS the Afghan president as well, although frankly I don’t know where he finds the time to do a second job.

Anyway, he recently spent hours coaching Clinton in a private garden in Washington’s trendy, elegant, leafy, historic Georgetown neighborhood.

If you don’t think Clinton can be scary, too, here she is apparently screaming at some kids to “get the hell off my lawn!”

michelle fists 220Wait a minute, Blog Guy, the caption says that photo shows her arriving at an airport in Shanghai.

Yeah, whatever. I bet they still got the hell off her lawn.

I take your point, Spinster, but it’s probably been a few months since you visited the museum. There have been so many goofy faces in the last year that we’re running out of room. Go ahead, try sending in the goofiest face you can make – we’ll try to find a place, but I can’t promise anything.

I think Hillary Clinton was trying to teach him the words to “When Irish Eyes are Smiling”.

There could be a rumble in the next presidential elections? No?

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive

word… LOL 😀

Ok, I know I’m not one to talk or judge, but why does Hilary wear such shapeless clothes? I mean really! She could dress sooo much classier!

I know I’m no skinny minx, but mu-mu’s and kaftans and other tunic-type outfits with no shape to be seen are just no-no!!

:sigh: Ok that was good to get off my chest! Thus spake Egeria.

It was that the words of Egeria rang through the blogs of Oddly Enough and her fellow commenters did rejoice upon hearing them! They then did braketh the medidoughnut amongst them and did feast in her honor!

For she will guide them to salvation as foretold by Basler, a mighty blogger, from the land where bloggers dwell. It is a land of bathrobes and slippers.

“For ye who follows me,” spaketh Basler “shall surely join together in unity of a great party! Thou shall drinketh of the liquors and beers of plenty and none shall thirst! Thou shall eateth of the doughnuts and all doughnuts shall be medi! None shall glaze thy doughnut that is not medi nor shall one sprinkle..eth.. of it neither and none shall be hungry!”

Egeria did look upon her fellow commenters and she did feast with them.

And it was good.

The Oddly Enough gospel as told by Mr. Pilot. Act I.

That’s not Karzai. Karzai always wears that Russian Cossack hat.

Egeria…aka Pythia. (And I’m betting everyone commenting knoweth who that is-eth…without having to googleth!

Huffing methane? Not a chance unca! But ethylene, that’s another matter altogether. 😀

As for your future…I see much mirth and hilarity. And…wait a minute something is appearing in my ethylene induced trance…something dark and terrible…

Oh wait. It’s just Baz’s next blog post.



Posted by egeria | Report as abusive

E, are you quite sure you’re not mistaking your ethylene with your ethanol?

If you are, that would clarify a couple of things. And I must say it wouldn’t surprise me, you being in Ireland and all…

[…] on to that goofy face coach in the photo. He may even be better than that coach Hillary Clinton uses. Whatever you’re paying him, it’s worth […]
