Okay gang, you all know the deal. We’ve actually persuaded Prince Charles to endorse our brand of coffee for a TV commercial!Yeah, he said it’s only Canada so nobody will see it anywhere important, and he can use a few extra bucks.It’s a real advertising coup, but we only get one take, so it has to be perfect the first time.Now, the prince is going to just be walking along doing prince stuff, and ask for a cup of our coffee. He’ll try it, and then give us a big smile of delight.Oh my God! This is our one take? This is supposed to make people buy this crap?Well, we’ve paid for it so we have to use it, but at least edit out that last few seconds where he drops to his knees and spews his lunch on the crowd.
Oddly Enough Blog
Blog Guy, you haven’t done any fantasy photos for a few days. I want some!
I’m here to make you happy. What the hell do you want?
I want a photo of a billionaire dressed like a clown.
Sigh. Any special setting?
No, it can be anyplace, so long as it’s in Red Square.
Holy crap! Anything else?
Yes. I want a photo of actor Sylvester Stallone in his private bathroom.
Geez, I sure hope the authorities are watching you. Okay, here are the two shots you requested.
Blog Guy, you have written lots about exotic homes of the world’s leaders. Interesting stuff about 10 Downing Street, where Britain’s prime minister lives, and your amazing look at the unique home of Russia’s president. Can you tell us about other official residences, please?
Blog Guy, as a journalist I imagine you’re happy to be in a country with a free press, unlike some other places.Amen to that! Like Canada, for instance.Um, I believe they have a free press in Canada, don’t they?Yeah? Tell that to the reporters who went to a local official’s news conference yesterday, where he waved a big snake at them every time they asked a question!Did you read that someplace? Nah, I just saw a picture.I’m sure you know that didn’t really happen. Why did you make it up?So I could show our actual photo caption below, which carefully identifies the guy as (C) for center, so that easily-confused readers won’t mistake him for the snake.
