Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
The actual caption for this photo below says these workers are TESTING FIRECRACKERS at a firecracker factory. I am not making this up.
Um, what kind of stuff am I testing for?
Well, some of our firecrackers have wicks that are too short. So we need to test ‘em to see.
Is that all?
No, some of them seem to be too heavy to throw very far, so we want to identify those.
I’m embarrassed for these guys. The photo captions say they are in the Air Force, and are displaying their “skills.”
But here’s a tip. If you find yourself slithering along the dusty ground with a bayonet on the end of your rifle, you may have joined the WRONG Air Force! There’s a chance you got drunk and signed up for that other branch, Dudes Who Crawl Along With Bayonets Until They are Strafed by the Air Force.
You were smart to come to me. Below is a photo of a rocket-leader at work, walking a few feet from the business end of a Soyuz spacecraft.
Have you thought about being a freak?
Well geez, I’m no Brad Pitt, but…
You have to dream big, son! Gone are the days when you had to be lucky enough to be BORN a freak! Just watch our video about this young man who underwent countless operations, tattooings and piercings to WORK his way to lucrative freakdom!
Blog Guy, you’ve helped others with specific fashion problems, so here I go. I’m a female janitor, and my profession isn’t exactly known for high fashion. I work in a nice pre-war building in Manhattan, so I want to dress like it. I also want a more glamorous title than janitor.
I love it! Now about the wardrobe…
I think you’ll find what you need in a Barcelona fashion show last week. This outfit makes a bold statement: “Your kitchen sink is stopped up? Wash your dishes in the toilet!” Or maybe it says,”A whole twenty bucks for a Christmas tip? YOU keep it, hotshot!”
Blog Guy, your career advice for recent grads seems to be the best available, and I just wanted up update my list of jobs to avoid before I send out my resumes. Any new scams I should know about?
For sure. There has been a real promotional blitz lately about the so-called “exciting field of crocodile dentistry.” Well, no matter what adjectives they use to describe this career – lucrative, glamorous, enjoyable - it really isn’t any of those things.
Now, this may seem like a great summer job, but there are problems…
- The First Lady never picks up the dog poop, so good luck with your shoes.
- Old Man Bush always hollers out the screen door: “Stop that racket, I’m nappin’!”
Apparently, judging from some new photos. Here, you can see a number of firewomen sliding down the poles in their firehouse, heading for action.
Um, I can’t help noticing they are wearing thigh-high leather boots with spiked heels.
