A chance to Trump myself…

June 1, 2010


Blog Guy, say you could do anything you wanted to Donald Trump. What would it be? Go wild.

What a fun game! Um, I’m seeing him driven around for days in a Mini Cooper, all covered with itchy poison ivy and listening to the “Complete Works of Salmon Rushdie” via Books on Tape.

BRITAINFrankly Blog Guy, I expected something more creative  from you.

Gosh. I’m sorry. Okay, I’ve  got it. All he gets to eat, for a solid month…..

Let me stop you, Blog Guy. It can’t involve brussels sprouts because you’ve already used them recently for a cheap laugh.

Please give me one more chance. Okay, Trump is out in the middle of nowhere, with bagpipers playing, and he can’t get away from them. All he has is a golf club, and when he can’t take it anymore he has to use the club to knock himself out. You like that one?

trump 3 club 260 thisThere’s a big flaw. Wouldn’t he just use the golf club on the bagpipers to get them to stop?

Nope. Real bagpipers won’t stop playing no matter how much you hit them with a golf club, but please don’t ask me how I know that.

“say you could do anything you wanted to Donald Trump. What would it be?”

I have no desire to do anything to Mr Trump, I don’t agree with some of the decisions he makes, okay a lot of the decisions he makes, but that is the job of a wanna be critic, to be critical, and on closer inspection there is a lot to be questioned while we heal earth otherwise we become cows graising in the field.

Fun Game ?, well if its a matter of fun then make him a contestant on his own show.

I’ve just developed hatred for Trump :-O

Well Spinster, I’d lend you a golf club, but like I said….

Right on justCAM! :)

@lightwayvez…what’s this I hear about cows?

Hang on, Spinster. You’re eight floors up above this guy? Have you never seen a Daffy Duck cartoon? Can you get hold of an anvil or an office safe or a grand piano?

Look at that guy in that first picture, wearing that oddly coloured, freaky headpiece – the one standing next to the piper.
He may have most of the money in the world, but he still can’t buy a decent haircut/wig/implant/hamster/whatever-the -heck-that-thing-is-on-his-head.

Exactly, Unca! Acme, when you care enough to drop the very best!

where is my kick -in-his-face comment??

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive

Sorry Shra, I thought it was just a tad harsh, but I suppose you get a similar point across in this one, anyway….

Posted by rcbasler | Report as abusive

This would be his media event to try and persuade the locals that they’d liked to stop objecting to his planning application and let him trash their beaches?

I’m with what I’m guessing Shra was saying – in his face!

Just what the world needs — another golf course.

I would make DT privy to the private thoughts of others about him. He would see the contempt and disgust and total lack of respect I believe most people hold for him. They may respect his money, but if the money left, they would follow it.

Without his money, he’s nothing but Yosemite Sam. Just once — and just for me — I would like him to belt out “Great Horney Toads!”

I think they’re playing ‘Scotland the Brave’, because that’s what you have to be to allow Donald Trump within 10 feet.

Blog Guy, you are just too thoughtful. Men in kilts. If I hold my hand up to the photo, only the piper is in the shot. Did I mention I have a thing for men in kilts?

Posted by Onedoor | Report as abusive

Ondoor… there are quite a few good looking kilt-wearing guys in my town… always a pleasure to see them… eye-candy, you see.. (wink wink)

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive

Shra, the scenic opportunities in your town make me smile..though I am managing to contain the drool. Parades here are my best source of men in kilt viewings. Hey! You should have a business taking tourists out in busses to see men in kilts! Men in Kilts is starting to sound like a band’s name or book title. Oooh, photo book…

LOL! I like the way you think, One.. :)

Nice sporran ! Is that a dagger in your sock, or are you just pleased to see me ?

Posted by CrowGirl | Report as abusive

Lol Unca, unsure of your fanny? 😛

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive

I did mean the fanny in the “hiney” terms, yes Unca… though people in these parts do refer to it as fanny at times.. 😛
