News, but not the serious kind
Doesn’t her jaw ever start to hurt?
Blog Guy, you know Angela Merkel, the Chancellor of Germany? She reminds me of somebody, I just can’t think of who.
I know what you mean. Imagine her mouth on someone else, like maybe one of those old-time “comedians” like Martha Raye or Joe E. Brown.
That’s it! Those comedians who weren’t funny, they were just kind of sad and embarrassing. But people didn’t know that, because really funny stuff hadn’t come along yet.
Is she always like this?
No, I think this is just a teaser for that new German television quiz show, “Open Wide.”
Really! How does it work?
Each week, contestants guess what items will fit in a guest celebrity’s mouth, such as:
a) der Apfel (apple)
b) das Stinktier (skunk)
c) der Liegestuhl (reclining chair)
d) Bavaria (Bavaria)
Blog Guy, you’re making this all up, just to go with some photos of Merkel with her mouth open very, very, very wide. Right?
Maybe, but it’s a holiday today in the U.S. and Canada. What do you expect?
