News, but not the serious kind

Cheese it! It’s Wonder Woman!

August 13, 2011

Blog Guy, you have a lot of inside info on politics and I’m hoping you can clear something up for me. I’ve heard that Sarah Palin may actually be Wonder Woman.

Whoa! You may be on to something there, Ace.

It all fits! Palin rides a motorcycle, just like the real Wonder Woman, and she always travels with her faithful calf, Shep, and her wise-cracking sidekick, Todd….

Um…

And what could be a better secret identity than “former Alaska governor.” Who would ever suspect that?

I mean, she’s free to go fight evil in Iowa, New Hampshire, anyplace where crime is rampant and there may be voters!

I think you’re confusing your superheroes, Blog Guy.

Wonder Woman didn’t have a calf named Shep, at least not in most issues.

She was just a very hot, patriotic gal from a faraway place who reduced good and evil to simple comic book concepts and surprised everybody when she swooped in to save the day.

Oh, and she used special indestructible magic bracelets to deflect danger.

Like I said before, you may be on to something here, Ace.

Do you suppose she’s going to shoot that calf, perhaps mistaking it for a moose?

I’m trying to picture Shep as the lead calf on the calf sled team this winter in Alaska.

Shep has his ears perked up. Think he heard the words cheese, burger and fries.

Cheez Its! Yum.

I have a comment on this, but I need to go and check my dictionary. Don’t want to risk a zapping AND be wrong…

Blunder Woman, Blunder Woman
All the world is waiting for you
And the goofiness you possess

With your messy hair
And your glasses’ glare
Giving Russia a grizzly stare

Blunder Woman, Blunder Woman
Tell us about the midnight ride of Paul Revere
And how he warned the British to steer clear

Run the Senate floor
You can do so much more
Just stay away from the cartography chores

Crow, if you misuse a word in a comment it will be the first time….

Aw, thanks. :) In that case, I will assume that you meant Wonder Woman is patriotic to wherever it is she’s from, and just happened to be also keen on the US?

Posted by CrowGirl | Report as abusive
 

No,I’m pretty sure being patriotic means being loyal to the U.S. no matter where you’re from or where you live. For example you live in Wales, right, but to be patriotic you’d have to do something nice for the U.S. It’s just the way it works.

Dictionary says you’re wrong.

Perhaps the calf is her neighbor – from Russia! MILV – Mother I’d Like to Veto

Of course I’m wrong. I’m just staying in character.

Tom Brady gets PAID to be a Patriot! Can you believe that? I guess the rest of us just don’t care enough about our country.

You’re just trying to avoid a zap Mr B! I reckon Shra will give me a pass today, ‘cos I steered her in the direction of fantastic chocolates at a food fair near her.

Lol! Now, just wait a min, CG, just coz you directed me to amazing delicious, mouthwatering chocolates does not mean I will forsake my duty to the OE blog and its patrons…
No, ma’am.. my loyalty lies with the Blog…!
