Blog Guy, have you planned any special holiday events for your Goofy Face Museum and Doughnut Shop in Washington, DC?

You bet we have. We have new photo exhibits called “Goofy CEOs” and “Our Goofy Folks in Uniform.”

Plus, This week is our “Arm-Wrestle the First Lady” event, as you can see in the top photo.

Really? It surprises me that Michelle would participate in something like that at your museum, what with her commitment to eating healthy.

So, you guys here on that Groupon deal?

Blog Guy, wake up! Looks like you fell asleep at your computer.

Oh, yeah, thanks. I was going through the so-called “family photos” of finance ministers from the APEC Summit in Hawaii, and I keep falling asleep.

Can’t you get somebody else to do that?

Who? Who on earth is EVER going to look at these pictures, and yet they are a staple of every single summit. There are so many people, we don’t even bother to name them.

Join the army, and pamper yourself!

Now, if you just sign on the dotted line, son, it’ll be official. You’ll be a private in the U.S. Army.

I don’t know sir, I’m still not sure about this.

Look, I’m a professional recruiter, so I have to be totally honest with you. What’s holding you back, young man?

Bag? What bag, Baby?

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!

How the rich and powerful keep fit

Blog Guy, as someone who hangs out with the power elite, can you tell me how they manage to stay in shape? I mean, they must get free food anytime they want, so how do they cope with all that?

Good question. Powerful people usually hire other powerful people as their personal trainers.

The carrot and the shtick?

Hey Blog Guy, it’s me. That guy who collects photographs of famous people with vegetables. Bet you didn’t think you’d hear from me again.

Well, I did change my photo and got new sunglasses. What do you want? The last time I offered you photos of Michelle Obama with sweet potatoes and you said that wasn’t special enough.

Michelle, it’s time for a royal goof-o-rama!

“So here we are, sweetie, we’re about to meet the Queen of England.”

“Pretty cool, Barack. I’ll bet you fifty bucks you don’t have the guts to make a goofy face at her.”

Come on into Air Force One, sir. You’re the new hairdresser here to style the first lady’s hair for the big trip?

Yes, I am. I must admit I was a little surprised to be called in for such a big job.

The White House can’t afford plates?

Blog Guy, I’m disappointed in you.

Most of my readers usually are. What did I do now?

Easter came and went and you didn’t offer up your usual Goofiest Easter Photo. What gives?

I’m still waiting for our panel of judges. It’s down to two finalists.
