You’re just wasting these goofy shots?

September 26, 2010


Boss! What are you doing here? You NEVER come to the Oddly Enough Blog office!

BRITAINJust keeping the staff on their toes, Lamar, auditing the books.

Sure, Boss! Sit down. Somebody bring Blog Guy a doughnut! No, a CLEAN one!

Lamar, it’s almost the end of the month, and I see a stack of goofy photos we’ve paid for but haven’t used. What a waste of my goofy photo budget!

You know how it is, Boss, some of ’em look real goofy so we buy ’em, but then the writers can’t think of anything funny to say.

goofy extras miss 200Damn those overpaid writers!ย  Maybe we don’t even need them. Look here, Lamar. Let’s use this priceless shot with the platform shoes and the lipstick, and this crazy one of Prince Charles, and goofy Mass Missedonia…

You mean Miss Macedonia?

That’s what I said. Oh, for Lord’s sake, ANOTHER Hillary Clinton goofy face shot? Well, we bought it, so let’s use it. Use all of them!

But Boss, pictures without any funny commentary?

Sigh. Just run them on a Sunday, Lamar! Can you imagine who even READS this blog on a Sunday? Now where’s my clean doughnut?

Is there a mirror on the heel of that shoe?

Ahhh, who wouldn’t want to at least visit Skopje? What a cool name. I wonder if she needs a shoulder to cry on? ๐Ÿ˜€

Perhaps she is using Boots lipstick:)

I’m just here for the pictures today. Though a clean donut would be nice.

I’d like to help you out, Onedoor, but if you get a clean doughnut, everybody will want one.

Blimey, what would she be reacting like if she’d lost? If that bottom lip sticks out any further she’ll be able to put her vase of flowers on it.

She’s not putting on lipstick. She’s smokin’ something. Whatever it is, she clearly keeps it in her friend’s shoe.

Do you ever anything else on Sundays besides donuts? I like lemon Danish, just so you know when you go to the bakery next week.

Prince Charles: “Oh and when I get an ice cream cone I do so like to bite a hole in the bottom after I have eaten all the ice cream and use the cone as a telescope. Lookie there mates I spot a ship on the high seas! Tee hee hee I do so love ice cream!”

Or she is testing out what the fuss over cigars is about.

Photo one – helpful lady applying lipstick points out to shoe owner that she left the display stands attached to her footwear.

Photo two – Charles spots his mummy while using his imaginary telescope and is about to wave to her.

Photo three – Miss Macedonia is sad because she thought she was going to get her own Thappa as a prize.

Photo four – Hilary reacts as yet another foreign leader asks when her husband will show up, as he had previously promised to ‘hook him up’ the next time he was in town.
