Catching bayonets, what could go wrong?

October 23, 2011

It’s not that I don’t think you know what you’re doing, but we hired you to spiff up our military honor guard with some great new moves, and I’m just not sure about your plan.

WARNING: avert your gaze!

Blog Guy, as the proprietor of a very visual blog, can you tell me the easiest way to get people to look at a photograph?

It’s the Great Pumpkin, Mr. President!

October 21, 2011

Do you believe this, Michelle?

What’s that, Barack?

I’m the president, and I’m pulling my own pumpkins!

Pulling your pumpkins from the patch to the plane?

Precisely.

Where’s the presidential pumpkin puller?

In Pacific Palisades.

Presidential Pumpkin Puller Peter Piper is in Pacific Palisades?

Positively.

Poop! That explains why I had to pick my own peck of pickled peppers!

Farewell to the Gaddafi Goof-O-Rama

October 21, 2011

Blog Guy, have you been crying? What’s the matter?

Oh, you know, I just hate to see Muammar Gaddafi go.

Are you nuts? He was a brutal dictator, overthrown by his own people!

Sure, but he was a madcap, zany goofball, too. He was in a class all by himself, and my blog was richer for him.

Quick quiz: You realize your job may sort of suck if you…

a) find yourself on a flight from Malta to Tripoli

I’ve ALWAYS wanted whatever this is!

Blog Guy, anything new for us from Williams-Sonoma? I’m starting my Christmas shopping early this year.

Taking a stand for a place to sit?

Blog Guy, nobody has better connections to the 2012 political campaigns than you do. I’ve heard that President Obama has chosen his official campaign slogan for the presidential race.

Suddenly, it’s GREAT to be Ronald!

October 19, 2011

Blog Guy, awhile back you showed us lots of spam you were getting by mistake. It was meant for a guy named RONALD Basler. He seemed to be having a pretty rough time, what with debt, depression, a leaky roof… Have you checked on him lately?

Well, time to slap the old vodka bottle!

Blog Guy, I know you’re an expert on other cultures, and I have a question.

New iPhone? No Siri, Bob!

October 17, 2011

Blog Guy, I read your review of the new iPhone 4S the day it was released, and found it ridiculous. You bill yourself as one of the top technology bloggers in your zip code, and yet you didn’t even mention Siri, the phone’s incredible voice recognition feature, which answers questions and obeys commands.
