News, but not the serious kind

Put your mask and knife in the bin, Ma’am…


Blog Guy, I’m a huge fan of super heroines and I’m wondering what else is on the horizon from that genre.

Plenty. There’s a good new season coming up. Here’s a publicity still from NBC’s “Amazon Woman!”

Awesome! So she’s like from the Amazon, and she has all the mojo of the rain forest and she…

No. She has a secret hideout back in the stacks at amazon.com. She’s very smart, and when she gets the crisis signal she reads books. See those thick glasses?

Don’t I look sexy now, Popeye?


Blog Guy, I really need some fashion advice! I’ve been dating a sailor for oh, 70 years or so, and I need help keeping him interested.

How about taking cooking classes?

No, he has very simple dietary tastes. I’m afraid I’ll have to do it with a “new look.”

Lips the color of bug-splat on a windshield


Mr, Johnson, the police are very grateful for your help, since you’re the only witness who has come forward about the murder.

May we please go over your description again? I can’t believe our sketch artist got it right.

A Study in Scarlett


Blog Guy, I’m ready for more of your sage advice for aspiring photojournalists. if I want to reach the hearts and minds of the public, what should I be shooting? What’s most important to the people?

Scarlett Johansson’s hairstyle.

What? Who gives a flying… about that?

She changes it quite often, so it’s important to be the first one to shoot the latest. Here you can see seven versions, from this week back to 2003.

What’s that THING on his head?


Blog Guy, I saw a very strange wide shot of President Barack Obama yesterday. It looked like he has a pompadour haircut. Does his hair grow that fast?

I saw that one, too. Remember, it was Groundhog Day. I believe Obama had Punxsutawney Phil perched on his head. Yes, that’s what it looks like.

Doll! Love your new squaredo!


Blog Guy, I’m off to France tonight, and I know how fashion-conscious they are over there. Any beauty tips for moi?

Well, I hope your squaredresser gave you a good squarecut for the trip.

Squarecut? You mean a haircut?

Oh, I was afraid of this. Where haveĀ  you been, girlfriend? The very latest in chic is to have your hair modeled around a geometric frame, like these models at the Paris Haute Couture show.

Dear, you look positively radishing!


Here’s a video report on a cook who also uses vegetables to make clothes and stuff, like for instance the carrot wig on this lady in the screen grab.

Now, I could write cute stuff about 24-carrot accessories, leek chic, unbeetable fashions, dressing in the legume room… but I’m way too mature for that.

My shoes match! I have to go change!


Okay, fashion design staffers, there’s a recession on. We have to find a way to squeeze more money out of teenage girls, because they’ll buy ANYTHING!

Pay attention. We’re telling them the cool new look is those silly hats bullfighters wear. Yes, I’m serious. Now, Lenny has come up with some goofy, hideous dresses that will sell like hotcakes.

Oh, it’s one of those fright wigs!


Welcome back to our popular feature, “Things Maybe we Should have Explained in a Caption, but Didn’t.” The actual caption here tells us this soldier is “wearing a wig” as he smokes near the front lines.

Excuse me? “Ernie, we’re gonna see combat today. Is my wig on straight?” That just doesn’t sound right.

Another can of hairspray, Stumpy!


Blog Guy, now that our election is over, I need a political fix. What are some interesting parties to watch?

I like the guys in these photos. They’re an opposition faction in Egypt, and I just call them the Genius Party. You can spot them using aerosol cans to spray fire.
