The sound of family getting closer…

January 25, 2011


Blog Guy, it’s me, the private detective you hired to track down your birth family when you found out you were adopted. I have great news for you!

FILM-CANNES/I’ve found your family and I’m sending photos of your closest relatives, including your two brothers, in this picture at the top.

Needless to say, your entire birth family, the Fekrats, were thrilled to learn you are alive and well and don’t plan to bring charges against them.

I know you’re full of questions, Blog Guy.

Generally speaking, the Fekrats tend to shout quite a lot, and love to talk endlessly about the weather, reality shows, the highway system, duct tape and accordion music.

I showed them your blog, which they said was “really fricking lame,” but they also said, “Give us a week with that guy and we’ll have him shouting with cheese on his head for sure!”

The big surprise is, the whole Fekrat clan is coming in a group to visit you at your home.

Don’t worry about watching for them. Believe me, you’ll hear them coming.

Wow! Your family! Though it appears the lovely Hulga is the quietest of them.

Are the cheese hats insulated? Is the paint? Or do guys that stand shirtless in the cold imbibe enough anti-freeze prior to the game not to care?

Wow! Your family! Just made me love mine that much more:)

Does this mean you wouldnt blog on weekends, coz your cheesy brothers would take you to shout at a football game?
Would that mean I get weekends off from commenting?

No Shra, it means I’ll let members of my family take over the blog on weekends, and you still have to comment.

BG and Cam are related? Wow!

So, I guess that means still no Taser-Free Weekends.
