Museum gets a goofy facelift?

April 20, 2011

Blog Guy, you haven’t told us anything about seasonal plans for your Goofy Face Museum and Doughnut Shop. Are you gearing up for something huge?

goofy new combo 340We are indeed, but right now, Washington, DC is overflowing with tourists here for that Cherry Blossom Festival.

So?

Well, we like to wait until the crowds thin out. As Lamar, our marketing director, likes to say,  “There’s no sense in filling the place up with paying customers…”

I see, yeah, I guess you wouldn’t want to actually appear successful or anything. But you will have some new photos, right?

Absolutely! Actor Antonio Banderes sat for a great goofy portrait for us, and we’ve also added new works in a number of our wings.

goofy men sports this 340You know I love your museum, Blog Guy, but have you ever considered that maybe you have a few too many shots of people sticking out their tongue? Maybe you should limit them to like 60 percent of  your photos or something.

No way. In the goofy face museum game, tongues are almost everything. If you limited those, I’d be…

Sigh. Go ahead and say it, Blog Guy.

Tongue-tied…

Gotta love the debutante’s photo. She’s shocked that anyone would take a picture of her.

Wait; they were taking pictures of her gown. :)

Welcome to the museum, oh young unknown female.

Didn’t do so bad with only 60% of the pics featuring people sticking out their tongue here though. Well sticking out their tongue on purpose anyway. The debutante doesn’t count as it appears her tongue saw a really tasty doughnut and is trying to escape her mouth to get it.

Ok…here goes…

Antonio Banderas is right now peering out of the screen at me… and its not the least bit disconcerting.. :D

Marcia Strassman (whoever she is) doesnt have the right expression for sticking her tongue out…

The debutante looks so made up that she puts Anne Hathaway to shame… there is something odd that I cant put my finger on…

Got nothing to say about that Blair guy…

And somebody PLEASE tell me, that THAT is NOT Werth’s tongue…

If I had to look at Melanie Griffith as often as Antonio does, I’d have that same pained expression as well.

As for the debutant’s picture, are you certain you didn’t accidently publish a photo from a catalogue of, well, certain inflatable items aimed at lonely men?

Ms. Tiara looks like she’s posing as an inflatable…um… “companion”.
