News, but not the serious kind

Johnson, get in my office! You call yourself a news photographer?

What did I do this time, Boss?

I sent you to cover that Paris Hilton event where she’s pushing her line of shoes, but I told you NOT to make it look like free publicity. You know, it has to seem newsworthy.

After all, she is one of the 10 most hated people in America, AND she’s just trying to sell shoes.

It was tough, Boss. Every time I pointed my camera she held up a shoe and smiled, or crossed her long legs so her shoes were in the shot. I mean, normal people don’t just smile and hold up shoes, do they?

That’s a good point, Johnson. Maybe we can go for a tragic human interest angle here. You know, we’ll say she’s deranged.

Our ten-second in-flight movie will be…

Blog Guy, recently you wrote about a bunch of ambitious homemade inventions around the world. A submarine, a helicopter, stuff like that. Do those things actually work?

You bet they do. Here is that farmer in China testing his homemade flying device yesterday. It’s powered by eight motorcycle engines.

Get my cell phone, Hon, it’s in the toilet…

Blog Guy, like most of your readers, I come here for news about toilets, which you cover better than anybody else. I was wondering, are women’s bathroom habits any different from men’s, apart from the obvious?

They may be, judging from a new survey of women.  Among other things, the survey asked about items that women accidentally drop in the toilet. Money, jewelry, medicine, toothbrushes…

Is that Pig Latin, Mr. President?

Blog Guy, I was surprised to see you missed “Talk Like a Pirate Day” this week. It was fun!

Oh please. All that “ahoy” and “matey” stuff? Sorry, I waited for today instead, when we talk like presidential pirates.

Looks like that one passed the test!

Sarge, look sharp. I’ve got a job for you.

Sure thing, Captain, Sir!

We’ve captured all these big weapons from the Gaddafi loyalists, and we need to test ‘em.

Can you take care of that? And start with that big anti-aircraft gun over there!

Fashion models, name your poison…

Here we go again, Lamar. We’ve got a major fashion show coming up, and the cost of paying good models would bankrupt us. Have you found a source for bargain-priced chicks, like you usually do?

I sure have, boss. I think you’ll be very happy.

So what’s wrong with this batch, Lamar? Are they zombies, genetic mutations, snake handlers, extremely moody….

Ramen Museum? My cup runneth over!

Okay, kids, I got the tickets for our big vacation trip today, and you’re gonna love it!

Yay for Daddy! You’re the bestest! Where are we going? Disney World, Universal, Dollywood?

I left my part in San Francisco?

Blog Guy, I always come to you for my news about the movie industry. What’s my favorite actress, Halle Berry, up to these days?

She’s shooting a movie on location in Glasgow, Scotland.

Ah, so I guess this is another Glasgow movie that’s SUPPOSED to be Philadelphia, like that Brad Pitt zombie movie you wrote about recently?

The club doesn’t have a dress code, huh?

Welcome to another edition of our popular feature, “Stuff Maybe We Should Have Mentioned in the Photo Caption, but didn’t.”

For newcomers to the blog, the concept is simple. We just show photos that seem to raise a lot of unanswered questions.

What’s better than camping out drunk?

Congratulate me, Blog Guy! I’m going to Oktoberfest this year! It’s a life-long dream come true!

Hey, that sounds nice. Where will you be staying?

I‘m not totally sure, but I’m paying about $80 a night, so I’m guessing it will be very, very swanky. Maybe like a suite or something.
