Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Blog Guy, I know you’ve blogged about the TV series “24″. I see the two-hour season finale is coming up. Is it too late for me to start watching?
So the ship has sailed?
Nah, you can always jump into this series just for the finale, as long as you remember the unfailing “24″ rules:
Everyone you think is good is really bad
Everyone you think is dead is really alive
Everything you think Jack Bauer’s daughter knows, she doesn’t
Everyone who ever worked for CTU was a mole, but somehow they all missed seeing each other at the annual CTU Mole Christmas Party
That’s awesome! When did you figure all this out?
I guess it was in Season Five, when Mother Teresa opened fire on the U.S. President with an Uzi, but Adolf Hitler stepped up and saved him.
Well, THIS is a FINE mess!
We’re right on deadline for the Time cover story about Pope Benedict meeting Israeli President Shimon Peres in Jerusalem, and we don’t know which is which!
We’re losing money with every minute that goes by! Does anybody have the slightest idea who’s who?
Hey Blog Guy, I recall that you set up fantasy photographs for your readers, bringing bizarre pairings of people together. I have the strangest request yet. I want Janet Napolitano, the Homeland Security Secretary, and Ashton Kutcher, the actor.
Here you go. The caption says he’s on the right, she’s on the left.
Thanks! It must be hard to get shots of movie stars. You know, following them in high-speed chases, bribing hotel clerks for info…
“I’m gonna need a hacksaw!”
Judy Benjamin: I think they sent me to the wrong place.
Capt. Lewis: Uh-huh.
Judy Benjamin: See, I did join the army, but I joined a *different* army. I joined the one with the condos and the private rooms…
As a film buff, I hate lame remakes of classic movies more than anything. Well, more than anything except for dumb fashions, bullfighting, brussels sprouts, gyrocopters, clothing on dogs, Adolf Hitler…
Blog Guy, it’s me again, the aspiring photojournalist you’ve been helping. I know shooting photos of celebrities is a huge part of news photography, and I think I’m ready. Who is THE hardest celeb to photograph?
Tilde? That squiggly punctuation mark?
No. TILDA! Swinton!
That British actress who was in…um… whatever she was in?
She’s the one.
That seems strange. Why?
Just look at all these attempts in our photo archive. I gather she moves her head up and down so you can never get a full frame, and she makes horrible faces.
Hello, police? I need to report a robbery. My department store was robbed today. They took a bunch of wristwatches from our jewelry department.
What? Did I notice every person on the street today? Now that you mention it, they WERE all wearing surgical masks! Oh, right - the flu.
Blog Guy, I know you own a high-powered personal security company with some huge clients. What’s the latest thinking on protecting VIPs? Bullet-proof limousines, Kevlar, decoys, or what?
Harlequin masks. I disguise my clients with masks they can hold in front of their face in public. Here are some photos so you can see how effective it is.
