News, but not the serious kind
…so help me God. Hey, where are my cookies?
Why are you looking so happy today, Blog Guy?
Thanks for asking. Because I’m going to testify before the U.S. Senate. I volunteered when I saw that they gave chocolate chip cookies to General Petraeus when he testified.
Okay, wait a minute, Blog Guy. What are you going to testify about?
Huh? I didn’t know it involved actually knowing something. I figured they would ask me how my weekend was and stuff. Look, that guy from BP testified before Congress and claimed he didn’t know anything at all. Can’t I just do that?
Actually, you’ve already convinced your blog readers that you know nothing, so Congress should be easy. But look here, Blog Guy, people don’t go testify before Congress just for free chocolate chip cookies!
You think they’ll let me have all I want? Do they have different kinds, like chocolate chunk macadamia and stuff? I mean, from the looks of this photo of cookie bakers in the Congressional Bakery, I bet they…
Focus, Blog Guy! Those are cookie bakers over in India. They don’t work for Congress. You’re blowing this snack thing out of proportion.
Will they have milk? Can I testify with my mouth full?
