Folks, we may be in for a Trumpy landing

June 22, 2011

Blog Guy, we know you were pretty upset about Donald Trump not running for president, clearly a huge loss of humor potential for your blog. Are you getting over it?

I don’t have to. My staff researcher found a loophole on page 466 of the book “The Bloggers’ Code.”

Wait a minute. There’s a  “Bloggers’ Code” and it’s a BOOK?  Shouldn’t it be online?

No. there’s just the coffee table book. Pretty ironic, huh?

Anyway, it turns out if a person continues to fly around in an airplane with his name in huge gold letters on the side, even if the FOR PRESIDENT part is crossed out, then I can keep making fun of his campaign.

I’m sorry. You’ve lost me. What campaign?

The one he didn’t run. Don’t  you see? He never entered the race, and yet, in my world it’s as if he never left it.

Er, congratulations, Blog Guy. I guess you owe a big debt to “The Bloggers’ Code.”

Yep, is that a great book, or what! I just hope someday they publish it in English.

Is this Bloggers Code an actual ‘code’ or is it more like ‘just guidelines anyway’?

“Trump speaks at the Faith and Freedom Coalition “…
Now that is a sure sign of the impending Apocalypse!

Looking at Trump makes me giggle and think of Obama, is that bad?

You know, if William Shatner ever retires, Donny can take over his role on ‘Sh*t my dad says’.

All apprentices
yearn for the same thing: Their name
on a plane. Trump that!

E. – I’m fairly sure that the only difference between the Bloggers Code and the Pirate’s Code is that the word “Treasure” has been crudely crossed out and “Intellectual Property” penciled in above.
Also, by claiming that it’s ‘just guidelines’ in an untranslatable language, you can pretty much open it at random, point to any line and claim that it proves any point you want. Very convenient!

I’d ask you to tell the people who Gregor Samsa was, jc, but it wouldn’t go well for you…

Look closely — is that a loose hair piece flying around between the two guys on the top steps?

New movie idea:

“Snakes on a Plane II: Trump on a Plane!”

Where Samuel L. Jackson can issue the famous line, “I’ve had it with these Mo****-F***** Trumps on the Mo****-F***** plane!”

She doesn’t unless he’s going to the BonJovi concert tonight.

See if Lamar can get us a pic of the little bumper sticker on the tail of the plane that says, “You’re fired!” 😉

It’s just a regular ol’ Boeing 737 painted black. Nothing really impressive. Hell the Southwest Airline 737 is practically the official bird of Long Island considering about 100 of them fly overhead going in and out of MacArthur every day.

Still humming the songs….

Watcha say about learning, JC?

@Shra – I think he’s halfway there.

So, if the Don ate too much, was in a bad mood while wearing ugly clothes, that would make him lumpy grumpy frumpy trumpy.

Readership will jump,
It’s all thanks to Donald Trump –
And the Blogger’s Code!

U aint trying to flip me, are you, JC?
The concert was fantastic! It was my first ever concert, and I went alone..
I ended up dancing with these 2 nurses, who labelled me brave and mental in the same breath…

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive

Regarding Shra’s message, I believe those were the two nurses who must accompany Shra anytime she leaves the institution.

Posted by rcbasler | Report as abusive

Yeah BG, they were pretty much fun.. shame I cant even remember their names.. no harm done, am pretty sure that may change when they get me my meddies for the day..
