News, but not the serious kind

William, what year is it here?

Blog Guy, I’ve been reading your stories about Britain’s Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and their visit to Canada. With her incredible fashion sense, I’m guessing she must really be dazzling those Canadians.

Well, they don’t quite know what to make of her modern outfits, since your typical Canadian still dresses kind of turn-of-the-century.

You mean like they wear fashions from the year 2000?

No, the turn-of-the-century before that. Like in this photo above, where you can see William and Catherine walking among average Canadians festooned in their finery.

Holy crap! Are you kidding me? What is Canada, just a great big Seurat painting?

You have something on your…oh, never mind!

Blog Guy, I need your advice on my dating life. I’ve tried everything, but can’t seem to get guys to notice me.

Have you tried tobacco?

Smoking? Gosh, so many people do that, nobody would even care if I did it.

No, not smoking. Have you tried jamming the tobacco right up your nose?  That’s a very chic, very sophisticated look.

Blog Guy, thanks for finally giving us some coverage of William and Catherine’s royal tour of Canada. We want more!

Well, Catherine did a cooking workshop at the Institut de tourisme et d’hotellerie du Quebec, in Montreal.

We’ve got fresh Kate, direct from Canada!

Blog Guy, I have a complaint. Kate Middleton has been in Canada for several days now and you’ve written nothing about it, even though some of your readers are seriously addicted to her.

Look, I no longer actually cover stories, but I’m a professional, so I can wing it by looking at our photo file. Here you go.

The top 10 posts for a goofy June…

June was a very good month for the blog. Our traffic statistics showed that readers flocked to information they could use, along with our hard-hitting exposés of, you know, stuff.

We suggested a Father’s Day gift Dad will never forget, we told you how the rich and powerful manage to look better than you do, and we even told you how to get George Clooney’s ex-girlfriend. Maybe.

So you’re ALL named Jaydon?

Sometimes I despair for us all. And it turns out those are actually my giddy moments.

An item in the “New York Times” informs us that among the names that have gained the most in popularity in America over the last six years are Jayden, Landon, Addison, Khloe and several others.

Sorting through Gaddafi’s knick-knacks…

Guys, listen up! We’ve captured some sort of depot and bunker that belonged to Gaddafi!

This is a great victory for us, but we need to sort through it. Lamar, you keep your squad here and make a list of everything you find.

The easiest job on earth?

Blog Guy, I’ve just graduated from college, and I would like some of your famous career advice. Can you help me?

If it doesn’t take too long. What are you looking for?

I want the easiest job on earth. Let me make it clear. I want to live someplace wonderful, and have a job that takes no energy whatsoever. I want a job I couldn’t possibly screw up if I tried.

Don’t look up, it’s NUTTY in the sky!

I used to pride myself on having the goofiest content on reuters.com, but then this week I took a look at our space news, and saw what real scientists are telling us.

For instance, did you know astronauts had  to take refuge aboard the International Space Station’s “lifeboat” crafts yesterday?  The Russian space agency said “space trash” was passing very close to the station.

The most romantic protests ever?

Blog Guy, I read that they’re having street protests in Casablanca. Can you give us some details?

You know I don’t like to do research.

Well, maybe you could just look at some recent photos and guess what’s going on, as usual?
