Oddly Enough Blog

Enjoy, and don’t send me a postcard!

skywalk-300.jpgBlog Guy, some of your postings  offer vacation  tips.  Are you a travel agent? Can you help plan my holiday?

Gosh, this sub really dives fast!

Blog Guy, you’re always saying to be careful in choosing a career. I just got a brochure inviting me to check out the world of homemade submarines, and I just don’t see the downside.

Binge and purge: easier than ever!

As the song says, kicks just keep getting harder to find. The amusement park industry is having its big convention, and the hot new thrill seems to be dining 165 feet above the ground, at a table suspended by a crane.

Bogong with the wind…

It’s an ill wind that doesn’t fill somebody’s skillet, or however that saying goes. Strong winds in Australia are blowing migrating Bogong moths off-course and into Sydney, and residents are responding by, uh, eating them.

You should see what you DON’T see!

Dear Blog Guy,
What’s it going to be today? More pictures of people eating bugs, and frogs in blenders and stuff like that? You must look hard for the very grossest pictures you can find. That’s why I keep coming back.

The coffee shop at the Roach Motel?

April 5, 2007

As I was saying just a couple of days ago, on the subject of worm-filled tacos in Mexico, icky food has become a common theme of this blog.

Well, at least it’s wheelchair accessible…

Apparently just serving great food is no longer the preferred way to attract patrons to a restaurant, and don’t even think about presenting a tasteful, romantic decor. If you can’t bother making your place disgusting beyond belief, some other restaurateur will do it instead.

Front row seats for Elton John? Uh, maybe not…

Call me old-fashioned, but maybe there is such a thing as stars sharing too much information with their fans.

Sucking pea-flavored soda – the last straw?

November 21, 2006

Jones Soda, the people who make all those vile flavors you’d never put in your mouth, have announced green pea-flavored soda just in time for the holidays.

At least he gets to drink it out of a cup…

This U.S. Marine is enjoying a Bloody Mary, minus the vodka, lemon juice, Worcester and Tabasco sauces, and celery stalk. In other words, he’s drinking – well, you do the math.
