Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Blog Guy, it’s me, the dude who’s addicted to Prince William’s fiancée, Kate Middleton. I need another fix.
Sorry pal, she hasn’t been out in public recently. I can’t help you.
You must have something. You’re the one who got us all hooked. I need it real bad!
I was afraid of this. Okay, here are pictures of an actress and actor starring in a TV movie next month called “William & Kate.” Does that help at all?
Surprisingly, Hollywood has kept me at arm’s length, mostly through restraining orders, but that will change when they see my latest treatment for a TV sitcom.
Blog Guy, I really love that actress Julia Roberts. I think she’s so cool that I got a huge honking tattoo of her on my chest. Do you want to write about me?
Not unless you get about 80 more of them. Then you could match this newspaper vendor in Chile, who already has 82 of them and plans to get more.
Blog Guy, I think I’m going mad! I woke up this morning and the radio was saying something about a “U.S. President Taylor.” Who the hell is that?
Where have you been for the last two years, buddy? They were talking about President James Taylor.
“Michael, hold still so I can see myself in your fancy sunglasses. Do I have something between my teeth? I can feel it…”
“Ewwwww, Catherine! I told you not to have that spinach quiche for breakfast! Cripes! There’s a huge chunk of green stuff hanging out of your mouth!”
Quick quiz: The resplendent full dress uniform seen above, with blue lapels, gleaming buttons and rank stripes on the sleeves, will be worn by…
a) the commander of the Sri Lankan navy.
b) members of the Raccoon Lodge.
c) Britain’s Prince William at his upcoming wedding.
d) waiters at a party for the Oscars.
Don’t feel bad, this one fooled me, too. These are indeed specially designed uniforms for waiters at the Governors Ball, part of the Academy Awards festivities.
Okay, it seems a large fire swept through Rio de Janeiro’s Carnival center this week, “destroying thousands of costumes and floats and throwing preparations for Brazil’s annual festival of hedonism into chaos.”
I know this is a serious thing. They work pretty hard all year long on that stuff, and Carnival starts in three weeks.
Psssssssssst! Blog Guy, it’s me!
Wally? My old roommate from the Witness Protection Program?
No, you dimwit, I’m The Elephant Man! I was famous when my movie came out, back in 1980, and I’d like some of your fashion advice. I want to start hitting the singles bar scene, but I need a hip wardrobe.
Ah, that empty oat bag over your head and the stupid floppy cap aren’t making it any more, huh?
