News, but not the serious kind
The Hickey Queen of Floozy High?
Blog Guy, last week you did an item on a traditional Chinese therapy that involves putting suction cups on a person’s back, and you seemed to poke fun at it.
I SEEMED to poke fun at it? Maybe I’m getting too subtle lately.
As a practitioner of this therapy, I demand that you write about its benefits. Here you can see a very healthy woman who has undergone our treatment. I will admit that the suction therapy did leave a slight discoloration in a couple of spots on her back…
Slight discoloration? Oh my God, she looks like she ran from a paintball ambush!
Listen, Blog Guy, there is no reason to…
Slight discoloration? Did an angry shoe-shine boy beat her with his rag?
Now you see here!
Slight discoloration? Did she get drunk and pass out on a hot waffle iron?
How long is this disrespect going to continue, Blog Guy?
I never know. Slight discoloration? I guess she swam a family of lamprey eels across a river to safety?
Are you almost finished, Blog Guy?
Just about. Slight discoloration? Who is she, the Hickey Queen of Floozy High School?
