Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Blog Guy, you set up a lot of fantasy shots for your readers, and we appreciate them. Maybe it’s time to share one of your own fantasies with us.
Wow, I’ve had that same one, having chicks feed me from a bottle and I don’t have to do anything but sit there. Well done, Blog Guy!
You must be an idiot. See, MY dream would be to HOLD one of those really adorable, cuddly polar bear or panda cubs. I can’t imaging anything more fun.
Johnson, get your butt into my office!
What did I do now, Boss? I thought I was improving as a news photographer.
You are! I see all of our clients used YOUR photos of new those tiger cubs at the zoo. It’s as if the competition didn’t even send anybody!
They did send a photographer, Boss. The tigers ate him. It was pretty gross.
And while this poor guy was being torn limb from limb, you just kept shooting the cute little cubs?
Blog Guy, I’ve read that some pandas are being reintroduced into the wild. This fascinates me, but I worry that panda cubs raised around humans won’t be able to adapt.
That’s not an issue. All the humans these cubs come in contact with are dressed as pandas.
Regular readers know this blog normally overflows with irony, sarcasm and the absurd, and is no place for sloppy sentiment.
Except where animals are concerned. Several times a year, I feature animal photos that I hope will bring a smile and make readers happy to be alive.
Indeed, it just happened. I got my 20,000th member two days ago.
Congratulations! You and your staff must be so proud. What did Reuters and Facebook do for you this time?
Blog Guy, this is the Sunday before Thanksgiving, our family’s favorite day of the year! Our children, Paige and Preston, know this is P-Day, the day your blog is devoted entirely to “Cute Stuff That Begins with the Letter P.”
The children are sitting here with their steaming mugs of cocoa, their eyes sparkling with excitement. What do you have for them?
Kids, gather ’round for another bedtime story. I know how you love really evil characters. Let’s see. We’ve covered Hannibal Lecter, Vlad the Impaler, Rod Blagojevich, Mad King Ludwig…
Okay, Timmy and Sally, turn the lights out, get under the covers, and I’ll tell you about a naturalist named Chris Packham…
Blog Guy, I remember when you used to run photos of really cute animals now and then, to lower people’s blood pressure. You haven’t done that recently.
But what about us? Your readers? Couldn’t you just find one extraordinarily wonderful shot that brightened your whole month, and use that really big?
