Hey, Blog Guy, I’ve been looking at your photo file. You just had a shot of China’s President Hu Jintao, in Shenzhen.


Yes, Hu! He was near Macau, where that snooker player is from.

ws howe 220What?

That’s him! Si Tau Chong Wut. And while Hu was in Shenzhen, China’s premier was in Tianjin.


Right, Premier Wen Jiabao. Try to keep up, Blog Guy. I like all three of them.

You like Hu, Wut and Wen?

Yeah. Hey, did you catch the Cowboys game? How ’bout that linebacker, DeMarcus Ware! He’s great!

So you like Hu, Wut, Wen and Ware?

Do I? And Howe!

Um, that would be the legendary hockey player…

Gordie Howe! Of course!

I see. Gordie Howe, of Hu, Wut, Wen, Ware and Howe?

Sigh. Yes. Sometimes you seem kind of dense, Blog Guy…

If one were to follow this blog on Twitter how would it be presented if Twitter only allows for 140 characters? I don’t have Twitter and am curious to know.

And snooker reminds me, to the rest of the world on behalf of the United States of America, a once great nation of the world, I apologize from the bottom of my heart for Snookie. I can no longer condemn Canada for unleashing Celine Dion and Justin Bieber. Snookie, rest of the Jersey Shore losers, and everything they represent are an abomination of this planet. :::Sigh::: we are shamed.
