The stuff dream photos are made of…
Hey, Blog Guy, I’m here! Do you recognize me?
No, you dimwit. This isn’t “A Christmas Carol.” I’m the guy who sets up all those great fantasy photos for your readers, so I’m sorry to see it’s going away.
Well, thanks for all your good work. You’ve pulled off pictures I would have thought impossible, especially the ones involving world leaders.
You’re much too kind, Blog Guy. With the huge budget you gave me, let’s just say miracles could be performed.
I loved that time you got Nicolas Sarkozy to grab…
Yeah, I know the one you mean. You’ve used it over and over in your blog.
And getting Muammar Gaddafi and Hugo Chavez to drive around together. I’ve used that one a lot, too.
So there’s still some money left, Blog Guy. Any fantasy photos of your own before this all ends?
Could you have Russian President Vladimir Putin and former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi dress up like shaggy dogs and eat pickles and radishes?
That’s easy. Here you go, Blog Guy.
Wow! Okay, one more. Can you photograph German Chancellor Angela Merkel doing dishes?
Hmmmmm. Not in a sink with suds, but I think I can get her to use a dishwasher. Is that good enough?
That sure works for me!
