News, but not the serious kind
The carrot and the shtick?
Hey Blog Guy, it’s me. That guy who collects photographs of famous people with vegetables. Bet you didn’t think you’d hear from me again.
It wasn’t. First ladies with sweet potatoes are a dime a dozen, going back to Lucretia Garfield.
How about the Michelle Obama with red peppers? Here’s one on the left.
What would you say to Michelle Obama holding a carrot?
Are you just toying with me? There has been chatter about a carrot photo for the last couple of days, but I didn’t dare believe it. What with the recent changes in the food pyramid, that would be worth its weight in gold.
Gold? Twenty-four carrot gold, I suppose?
You shut up, Blog Guy! This is a serious hobby! Big money is involved.
Let me ask you something. Let’s just say I could lay my hands on a shot of Mitt Romney smirking at an ear of corn?
You’ll never have anything like that. Not on a blogger’s salary. That shot is only a rumor, and it’s already on the fast track to be Goofiest Photo of the Year.
Yeah, silly me. I guess that’s the stuff dreams are made of.
