News, but not the serious kind
Honey, is that you? How was your fight? Did you torture another poor creature to death?
I can’t understand what you’re saying. Sounds like somebody stopped off for a few beers with his amigos, huh?
I’m just thinking about dinner, hon. How about a nice butt steak?
Ah, I know, a RUMP roast! We can serve it with buns!
Nogo nogo nogo!
And for dessert, your favorite! Black bottom pie!
I guess I’d better start cooking, sweetie. I don’t want to get, uh, behind! Open the window a crack, will you?
Spanish banderiller Pedro Muriel is gored by a bull during a bullfight at the Malagueta bullring in Malaga August 22, 2010. Banderillers are bullfighter’s assistants whose role is to weaken the bull’s massive neck and shoulder muscles using harpoon pointed sticks known as banderillas (little flags). Muriel was gored in the right thigh but his wound is not serious, said his manager Ignacio Gonzalez to the magazine Mundotoro. REUTERS/Jon Nazca
Blog Guy, my sister went to Washington DC this summer and got her picture taken with President Obama at some event. Is that worth anything?
It all depends on the quality of the cutout. You know, did they use good cardboard, nice glossy finish, great big grin, almost real, that kind of thing.
Do not adjust your monitor, these two guys have intentionally distorted eyes because, we are told, they are on trial and their faces have been blurred “in accordance with German privacy laws.”
Are you kidding me? Because it looks like the agency that did the blurring just phoned it in. Is there anybody who wouldn’t recognize these guys if you ever saw them again?
Johnson! Get your butt in here! You call yourself a photojournalist?
What’s wrong, Boss?
I sent you out to get photos of Bavarian State Premier Horst Seehofer, right?
And you come back with one shot of him blocked by somebody else, and another snap that looks like his fricking finger is jammed up his nose!
Oh, sorry Boss, we all had a bet about who could come up with the goofiest shots of the guy. I won.
Blog Guy, I’m a HUGE Christina Aguilera fan. I know she sang the National Anthem at a Lakers game a couple of days ago, and I’m hoping you can run a picture of her. Please!
Sure thing, here you go, that photo on top. She’s looking nice, huh? I guess she…
Blog Guy, I see all these very inspiring pictures of first lady Michelle Obama visiting classes in schools, and the kids seem to love her. How does she establish that instant rapport?
I believe normally she begins by challenging them to a fistfight.
WHAT? Are you out of your mind?
Yes, I probably am, but let’s answer your questions in order. I think she says, “Hello class,” and they say, “Hello Ms. Obama.”
