News, but not the serious kind

Look, up in the sky, Joe!

“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!”

“I’m BAD, Mr. President.”

“You’re pathetic, Joe. You look like some damn humor blogger in those things!”

“Yeah? Let’s go talk to some chicks, Mr. President. Let’s ask them what they think…”

Is that Pig Latin, Mr. President?

Blog Guy, I was surprised to see you missed “Talk Like a Pirate Day” this week. It was fun!

Oh please. All that “ahoy” and “matey” stuff? Sorry, I waited for today instead, when we talk like presidential pirates.

So, Doc, is it a boy or a girl?

Blog Guy, I’ve heard our elected officials don’t earn much, and they have to find ways to supplement their income. Is that true?

Uh-oh, I suppose you’re going to ask me about former vice president Spiro T. Agnew, right?

Obama’s golden opportunity?

Okay staff, we all know we’ve got a problem. The president isn’t as popular as he used to be. His numbers are down, and the Republicans are slinging mud. Anybody got an idea?

Uh, could he save a small child from a burning runaway freight train, Boss?

Hmmmm. Not bad, Lamar, but he’s done that twice already. I think he needs something different this time.

I guess it must be Sunday again?

Lamar, come to my office for a minute.

Yeah Boss?

What’s this big stack of goofy photos I found in the wastebasket?

That’s just overflow, Boss. You know, we bought ‘em for the blog but then the writers couldn’t come up with anything clever.

So it’s the fault of the writers?

Of course, Boss. Isn’t everything?

Lamar, we can’t afford this kind of waste! What have I told you to do with leftover goofy photos?

Michelle, it’s time for a royal goof-o-rama!

“So here we are, sweetie, we’re about to meet the Queen of England.”

“Pretty cool, Barack. I’ll bet you fifty bucks you don’t have the guts to make a goofy face at her.”

When life is just a beer commercial…

Advertising staff, today we’re here to honor Lamar, whose work on the Guinness Stout account has been pure genius!

Gosh, thanks, Boss. You’re much too kind…

Not at all, Lamar. Who would have thought you could get photos of Barack and Michelle Obama, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip boldly showing Guinness Stout, all in less than a week?

The White House can’t afford plates?

Blog Guy, I’m disappointed in you.

Most of my readers usually are. What did I do now?

Easter came and went and you didn’t offer up your usual Goofiest Easter Photo. What gives?

I’m still waiting for our panel of judges. It’s down to two finalists.

YEAH! IT’S ME! I’M IN THE QUIET CAR!

Blog Guy, I know you’re a Washington insider. Can you tell me what, more than anything else, President Obama respects in other people?

sunglasses obama 200I mean, is it honesty, loyalty, intelligence, empathy, the ability to communicate?

“I thought I’d die laughing!”
