Oddly Enough Blog

News, but not the serious kind

The importance of…Have I used this headline before?


It’s summer, Blog Guy, and that means lots of funny local competitions. I hope you’re monitoring those for your readers.

I’m all over it. Looks like they just had some kind of “Plump Old Coot” contest in Key West, Florida, open to guys with big guts, white beards and Boy Scout uniforms. I have a photo of six of them.

Wait Blog Guy, I think this was that Ernest Hemingway lookalike contest that they have down there. They hold it every year at Sloppy Joe’s Bar.

You always write about it, and you always use the same headline, “The Importance of Being Ernest.”
