How did this fruitcake get a blog?
Hey Blog Guy, I came by your house this morning but you weren’t at home.
No, sorry, I had a craving for navel oranges and went to the market.
Ah. Was it a fruitful trip?
No. Sadly, my quest for oranges was fruitless.
Why are oranges in short supply?
I believe there’s a navel blockade.
You mean a naval blockade, don’t you?
No, they’re blockading navel oranges on the highways, not on the waterways, so it’s not a naval navel blockade.
What about grapefruit?
That’s a second-rate citrate.
So what did you do, Blog Guy?
Well, you know my philosophy: when life hands you lemons, write a really dumb blog about oranges and then go have doughnuts.
