Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Blog Guy, I really want to get into the movie business. Can you help me out?
I suppose I can pull a few strings and get you an unpaid production assistant job on “World War Z,” that new zombie movie starring Brad Pitt.
Wow! I would get to be Brad Pitt’s assistant?
Slow down, Speedy! No, you get to assist the zombies. Stack them in a truck, drive them from scene to scene, use a pitchfork to put them where they belong, and so on.
Hardly. They may be the walking dead, but they are still stars who want to be pampered.
This sounds like very menial work, Blog Guy. I wanted to use my brains.
Trust me, when you’re working with zombies that isn’t really what you want.
Blog Guy, I have a common problem. I’ve been a bridesmaid in three weddings this year alone, and I don’t know what to do with all my stupid bridesmaid dresses.
I say, my good man, are you the local fishmonger?
Well, I must say, there is a vile odor here!
You smelt something bad? Say, did you come to carp, or are you here just for the halibut? Get it? Halibut? I got a million of ‘em!
Blog Guy, I come to you for all my news about the movie industry. I worry that the big stars are demanding so much money these days, Hollywood will just stop making new films. Is that a real possibility?
We’ve got another fashion show today, Lamar, and money is still very tight. Did you manage to find us a model who works cheap?
What’s wrong with her, Lamar? There’s always something wrong with those cheap ones you get.
Most of us have favorite words, and it is a very personal choice. We enjoy the images they evoke and the sound that they make.
Citizens, you all know why we’re here. We need to do something about these killer ducks that have been preying on humans. Look, here’s a grisly photo of their latest victim.
I believe Sheriff Lamar has been searching for these vicious killers. Lamar?
That’s right, Mayor. I’ve been tracking the killer ducks on wet ground.
Blog Guy, recently you wrote about an upcoming auction where they were going to sell a rare signed photo of the outlaw Jesse James for an expected $20,000 to $30,000. When is that auction?
It’s over. It was this week, and they had autographs of Somerset Maugham, Pope Alexander VII…
So who’s got an idea for us to pitch? Lamar?
Well Boss, the public just can’t get enough of those crime scene forensic science shows.
