Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Blog Guy, as a professional observer of the human condition, you must feel inspired when you see man at his very best, reaching for the stars, dreaming his dreams.
Indeed I do. For instance, when men and women give their all to make the biggest taco or egg salad sandwich or pizza , just to get into the world record books.
But there is an exception. A couple of times a year folks will try to make the world’s biggest batch of hummus, and that’s where they lose me.
I’m sorry, but once you fill anything larger than a toilet bowl with hummus, it starts to look pretty damned unappetizing. It just comes across as a whole lot of something from a gigantic zit, or like,well, let’s not even go there in mixed company.
Dammit Johnson, we’ll make a photojournalist out of you yet! You finally did something right!

Blog Guy, I’m amazed at how many world leaders President Barack Obama has met in his first year in office! Who’s the latest?
I believe yesterday the Obamas welcomed the King and Queen of Keebler Forest to Washington, DC. We have some photos of the event.
Blog Guy, you’ve helped a lot of college seniors focus on a career to match their education. As a soon-to-be-graduating philosophy major, what should my next move should be?
That depends. Have you had a lot of offers from the recruiters that philosophy companies send around to the better schools? I mean, is there a respected employer saying he can’t wait to put your philosophy skills to work?
Welcome back to another edition of our popular feature, Stuff Maybe we Should Have Explained in the Caption, but Didn’t.
The captions for these shots from today tell us that Former Philippine President Joseph Estrada “eats with his hands” after a political rally.
Blog Guy, many college seniors depend on you for career advice. Are there any new opportunities out there? I am a woman with a creative writing major. I enjoy swinging from ropes and being around alcoholic beverages. Any advice?
Yes. Look into the exciting field of “wine angelry.” Apparently some hotels and restaurants are now storing their huge wine collections vertically, several stories high, and “wine angels” are sent up to retrieve bottles that are ordered, to entertain diners.
