Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Blog Guy, I was very interested in your report yesterday on the San Fermin festival, in Spain. May I ask a question about it?
Good question! I think it would look something like this photo here.
Very interesting. One more thing. If the woman in that photo was a long-lost love child of actor Dick Van Dyke, calling to say “Daddy, it’s your daughter, I’m running with the bulls at Pamplona!” What would his reaction look like?
It would probably resemble the picture below.
Thanks, Blog Guy. Your resources are simply amazing! I didn’t think you’d be able to pull that one off.
Quick quiz: The people in these photos are smiling because they got tickets to…
a) A $40 million lottery
b) A dinner with President Barack Obama
c) A private audience with the pope
d) A memorial service
Yeah, surprisingly, it’s the memorial service thing.
I guess this finally explains that old expression, “as happy as a guy going to a memorial service.”
Blog Guy, how can I get Reuters to take my picture? I imagine I’d have to do something VERY newsworthy.
Not really. All you have to do is put on silly outfits and go from city to city like that butthead British actor whose name I’m not going to mention. We’ll take your picture everywhere you go and put out 46 pictures in two weeks, and it probably isn’t over yet.
Blog Guy, I’m planning a vacation in New York City. I know you’re a cosmopolitan traveler who used to live in the Big Apple. Any inside advice?
Use the bathroom before you arrive. There are never enough to go around when you’re doing tourist stuff.
Don’t laugh. Looking through our photo file from yesterday I see that singer Mariah Carey seems to have run into this problem.
Television. Especially classic TV, when Dad came home from the office in a suit and kept it on until bedtime, and maybe didn’t even take it off then. To me, nothing says father like a scripted dad getting paid to love his pretend kids.
Blog Guy, you haven’t written anything about that singer, Susan Boyle. After she didn’t win “Britain’s Got Talent” she was admitted to a London clinic, and I want to know what’s going on there.
When something touching and beautiful happens to someone, I want to make sure it doesn’t last long, and that they pay for it by being hounded to the gates of eternal hell until the day they die.
Quick quiz: Well-to-do socialite Paris Hilton and this guy here are…
Discussing if they can get to the bar in time for Wednesday night $1 margaritas.
Singing that Captain and Tenille hit, “Muskrat Love.”
Shooting a mouthwash ad that will only be seen in Japan.
Flirting shamelessly; She’s saying, “I’ve done hard time, big boy, that changes a girl!” and he’s saying, “You’re a socialite? So you think the government should own everything?”

How does it feel, How does it feel,
To be on your own, with someone else’s poem?
I love this one. We did a story yesterday about Christie’s plans to auction a hand-written poem by a teenaged Bob Dylan. Christie’s said the poem was believed written in 1957 when Dylan, then still using the name Bobby Zimmerman, was at a summer camp in Wisconsin.
Blog Guy, I heard there was some kind of financial disaster involving your Goofy Face Museum and Doughnut Shop.
It’s horrible. We spent a huge portion of our 2009 acquisition budget for the photo on the right of comedian Jerry Lewis mugging in Cannes this week. We were told this was the only Jerry Lewis goofy face shot in existence.
Blog Guy, Since you seem to be writing about television these days, are you following the great Showtime series, The Tudors?
