News, but not the serious kind
The food is greasy, but your hair is great!
Blog Guy, I need some advice on home entertaining, and I know you’re an expert. Can you help me with some nagging problems?
Well, we have some friends coming to dinner soon, but it falls on the same day of the month that I wash my hair! I can’t figure a way out of this one.
It’s a dilemma, that’s for sure, but I suggest you go for the new Panasonic hair washing robot, seen here being demonstrated on a mannequin.
This way, you can have the robot wash your hair, leaving you free to prepare a gourmet dinner for your guests. Problem solved?
Er, I was just going to zip over to a fast food drive-through to pick up the meal. You think the hair-washing robot comes in a mobile version?
Gosh, I wouldn’t be surprised. Good luck with rinsing and driving at the same time. Anything else I can help you with?
Actually, yes. I use drive-through windows all the time, but I have a hard time understanding what they say on those speakers.
Why yes, I think I can help you with that problem, too. Check out this new gadget on the left.
Thanks, Blog Guy, you’re the best! Can I repay you by inviting you to my dinner party?
Darn the luck, I’d love to come, but that may be the very same evening I brush my teeth…
