News, but not the serious kind
Thanks, so this is sort of like a Grammy?
Blog Guy, do you still arrange those fantasy photos for your readers?
Yeah, as long as my budget holds out. What do you have in mind?
Okay. I’m seeing, uh, Oprah….
Yikes, Oprah? She charges $30 an hour for fantasy shoots! What’s she doing in your fantasy?
Uh, she’s with that actor Russell Crowe, on a yacht. In Australia.
OMG that’s my whole fantasy photo budget for the year! Anything else?
Yes, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin is playing a grand piano, see…
Jeez! It has to be a GRAND piano?
There’s more. I see actress Anne Hathaway, at a Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in Oslo, and…
And? What else could there possibly be?
It’s coming, it’s coming… Hathaway is giving the Nobel Peace Prize to… Barry Manilow!
That’s a deal-breaker. Everybody knows how this blog feels about Barry Manilow music.
I see. Well, would you rather have her give the Peace Prize to a group of accordion-playing bullfighters instead? Huh?
Would you like Mr. Manilow to make a brief acceptance speech?
