ice-cream-crop-120.jpgBlog Guy, I know you sometimes indulge your readers’ fantasies. I collect photographs of really rich people eating ice cream. It isn’t a large collection, but I’m hoping you can help get me some good ones.

I can’t resist a challenge, so I put our shooters on this one. I rejected a shot of Queen Elizabeth drinking a cherry Slurpee from 7-Eleven, on the grounds that it isn’t really ice cream.

But here’s the good news: a photo of billionaire Warren Buffett eating ice cream on a stick! We’re also staking out a Baskin-Robbins near Bill Gates’ house, in case he gets hungry. Is this a great blog, or what?

Sorry, you’re not my type…

Hey Blog Guy, it’s me!

Who?

Me! The guy who talks to you in italics so you can carry on pretend conversations in your blog everyday.

You really EXIST? I always thought those conversations were just voices in my head.

Lose weight the Christmas Party way!

“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!”

Eugene, please have a seat…

Say, Blog Guy, I’ve been wondering about that guy who’s sort of a living legend in your blog. You know who I mean.

Of course. You’re talking about none other than Eugene “Toilethead” Johnson.

For dummies who read this blog…

Blog Guy, you run a fairly low-tech operation, right? I mean, there’s nothing complicated about doing a humor blog.

You couldn’t be more wrong. We do consumer testing, focus groups, FDA monitoring, all that stuff.

Folks, we may be in for a Trumpy landing

Blog Guy, we know you were pretty upset about Donald Trump not running for president, clearly a huge loss of humor potential for your blog. Are you getting over it?

I don’t have to. My staff researcher found a loophole on page 466 of the book “The Bloggers’ Code.”

Big trouble when the chips are down?

Oh Dear Lord, tell me this isn’t happening!

I just wanted to watch some tennis, so I called the boss on our busiest day of the year and said I was sick with projectile vomiting, impacted wisdom teeth, temporary insanity and a fever of 106…

Then I got to my seat, and who’s right in front of me? The fricking PRIME MINISTER!

Cutest bear on earth visits my blog

Blog Guy, have you ever done anything as a blogger that you’re really ashamed of?

Nothing that anybody can prove.

Really? Nothing?

Okay, okay, I guess you’ve heard I hired Medo the Bear Cub to do cute stuff on my blog today. I mean, we’re heading into the summer lull and I need the traffic.

I’ve decided not to be President Trump…

Blog Guy, what’s wrong? You look like you’ve been sobbing.

Yeah, I have. I’m pretty broken up about Donald Trump not running for president.

But you weren’t going to vote for him, anyway.

Yes, but I figured my blog was practically written in advance through 2012. It would have been so easy. I’ll never find anybody like that again.
