I guess it must be Sunday again?

July 10, 2011

Lamar, come to my office for a minute.

Yeah Boss?

What’s this big stack of goofy photos I found in the wastebasket?

That’s just overflow, Boss. You know, we bought ’em for the blog but then the writers couldn’t come up with anything clever.

So it’s the fault of the writers?

Of course, Boss. Isn’t everything?

Lamar, we can’t afford this kind of waste! What have I told you to do with leftover goofy photos?

Oh. Use ’em on Sundays, when nobody will see ’em anyway?

Exactly, Lamar! And what day is today?

It’s a Sunday, Boss.

Then the next time I look at the blog, I want to see all of these. Even the one of Hillary Clinton. You remember what Ben Franklin said about waste, Lamar?

Yes, I believe he said, “Fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can’t get fooled again.”

Words of wisdom, Lamar. Words of wisdom…

Yay! Coolest World Leader Dude makes an appearance!

the Prez is getting lots of white hair. Why in the world would anybody want a job that ages you at least 15 years in 4?

so…that third picture is Ben Franklin? He looks good for his age!

Gotta goofy face? Join the OE Blog Network!

My first reaction to Prince Charles was, “No, no, you need to put your hands up to your head and go, ‘Wah!\'”

Wow! First photo makes it appear the cool leader dude is taking his head off/putting it back on his neck!

Tibetan singing bowls? Judging by the look on his face, combined with clapping his hands to his ears, they must sound awful. Hillary just looks scary.

Has anyone ever seen a photo of Hillary where she didn’t have a goofy face? I swear you’d think that there has to be an angle where she could get a decent look about her.

Nice to see Mr Boycott featuring here.

@LT – I think the world will end if one surfaces.

if Shra grants a zapper pass, could somebody explain cricket? There’s a group that plays every Sunday behind the YMCA. I’ve watched them a good bit, but darned if I can figure out the game. Reading Wikipedia didn’t really help. I need “Cricket for Dummies” 😉

@GeorgiaPeach, no unfortunately no one can explain cricket. It just sort of exists and no one is really sure why. Kinda like soccer in America.

Georgia, you asked for it. The first thing you must do is forget, disremember baseball.

Doc, now see, I am running out of reasons NOT to zap you and I sure dont see why you dont get it!! No teaching!!


Posted by Shra | Report as abusive

thanks for the link, Doc. I think we are both safe from the zapper ’cause there’s just no way to learn what cannot be explained (Mr. Pilot, you were right)

Prince Chuckles describes just how large his ears were, before the surgery.
POTUS spies a person eating a luther burger in the crowd, and is moved to say ‘Now, THAT’S what I’m tlaking about’.
Looks like Hillary may have pulled her hair back just a little too hard.
Geoffrey Boycott. Polite, respectful and reserved as ever.

Before I hit the submit button accidentally, this is what I was gonna say
“CG, agree, dont think anyone does goofy like Mr.Boycott”

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive

Spin, I thought BG worked from home and wrote his blogs while in his pjs.. he sure never mentioned an office..
I say we call his bluff!

evidently nobody will fall for the Prez’s “pull my finger” joke anymore
