Are these the missing links?

November 13, 2011

Blog Guy, I want to order one of those elaborate fantasy photos you set up for your readers. You know, the really strange stuff, like that hotel suite with chocolate furniture, and like Sylvester Stallone’s bathroom, and…

Let me stop you right there. it’s November. My fantasy photo budget is almost gone, and I can’t manage anything that elaborate.

Oh. What can you give me, then?

How about a guy drinking what looks like a bottle of vodka, with sausages hanging from his hat?

Are you kidding me? Sausages?

It’ll be tasteful. He’ll have a nice earring, and the sausages will dangle at a jaunty angle. I’ll post it in my blog.

If you’re using a photo like that in your blog, this must be a Sunday. So what will happen to that guy drinking with the sausages?

He’ll wake up tomorrow with the wurst hangover…

Competing in what, precisely?!

I was curious about that too, Crow, but then I figured we probably don’t want to know.

Dude, what’s with the sausage fest? I thought you said there would be chicks here!

@Crowgirl – I think the contest involves seeing how quickly a Police dog will attack you, once released by it’s handler.

@Crow: The competition might be who can wear/display the most interesting accessories, one of which must be sausage.
