News, but not the serious kind

Look, up in the sky, Joe!

October 4, 2011

“Jeez, Joe, what are you doing with those aviator shades? You think you’re Tom Cruise, or what? Take those things off!”

“Put a sock in it, Mr. President. I look SO cool in these babies!”

“Good Lord, Joe. Look, I’m covering my face with a hanky, so folks can’t see me laughing!”

“I’m BAD, Mr. President.”

“You’re pathetic, Joe. You look like some damn humor blogger in those things!”

“Yeah? Let’s go talk to some chicks, Mr. President. Let’s ask them what they think…”

“I’ll tell you what I think, Joe. Ya see that drone up there in the sky? It’s waiting for my signal. If those sunglasses aren’t off in four seconds….”

If you swap the first two pictures, one would assume that a pigeon dropped its load on the President…

Birdy, birdy, in the sky. Why’d you drop that in my eye?

or:

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s Rick Perry, and he just dropped something in my eye.

Joe, I blogged with Bob Basler, I know Bob Basler, Bob Basler is a friend of mine. Joe, you’re no Bob Basler! …and the GFM&DS crowd goes wild ;)

I just realized that in the picture where Obama is wiping the dump off his face, Joe’s expressions also seem to suggest he’s smelt something really bad…

The future’s so bright, Joe’s gotta’ wear shades.

BG, Obama wouldn’t use a drone to convince Biden. Why bother! I’m sure Obama carries a “little midgy cricket” on him.

Or that memory eraser, just in case.

Obama: It’s 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark… and we’re wearing sunglasses.
Joe: Hit it.

Poor Joe, he just can’t get no respect.
Ever since POTUS sent him to the Mongolian desert, he has had to wear those prescription sunglasses, due to the retina burn.
On the plus side, he can now look directly at Sarah Palin without the risk of being turned to stone.

In the second pic, it looks like the President is looking at the main event of the fly-over, and the Vice President is playing the blind man.

It’s time for deux haiku:

Aviator shades
Battle between the Blog Guy
And Vice President

Blog Guy wins battle
He looks better than Biden
Obama said so

Birdie, birdie in the sky
You droped some whitewash in my eye
I don’t pout and I don’t cry
But how glad I am that cows don’t fly

They were witnessing a BT-69 fly-by. Joe had to turn away as the engine sputtered. Someone pulled the wrong lever and dumped the lav. :-)

@Nosmo, more like Joe can pretend to look directly at Sarah Palin while looking at her bewbs instead.

“I’ll tell you what I think, Joe. Ya see that drone up there in the sky? It’s waiting for my signal. If those sunglasses aren’t off in four seconds….”
Meanwhile the next scene is Good Ol’Joe sitting alone on a train still wearing his sunglasses. Who wants to fill in the blanks?

“the Vice President is playing the blind man”

Is that a euphemism? Is THAT what the handkerchief is for?!

ifly, allow me some filling in.

The drone attacks, “and like that, *poof*, he was gone!”.

Next thing Joe knows, he’s on the Polar Express.

Blimey. I didn’t think that would make it past Mr Spam Filter.

Georgia, surprising isn’t it?

ifly? Didn’t quite get what you mean there, so can’t answer that. Try calling him.

The Polar Express. Isn’t it that kid couldn’t hear the bell ring from Santa’s sleigh because he didn’t believe enough in Santa or something?

Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive
 

I have to admit I haven’t watched that movie yet, but I know there’s a train involved. That answers your question, at least in part?
