blockade oranges this 490

Hey Blog Guy, I came by your house this morning but you weren’t at home.

No, sorry, I had a craving for navel oranges and went to the market.

ARGENTINA-FARMERSAh. Was it a fruitful trip?

No. Sadly, my quest for oranges was fruitless.

Why are oranges in short supply?

I believe there’s a navel blockade.

You mean a naval blockade, don’t you?

No, they’re blockading navel oranges on the highways, not on the waterways, so it’s not a naval navel blockade.

Blog Guy, I represent some readers who want to talk to you about your punctuation.

Blog Guy, your readers have grown very fond of Lamar, who shows up in this blog frequently. I know he’s never photographed, but maybe we could get some kind of behind-the-scenes look at his lifestyle or whatever. He has a lot of fans out here.

You’re losin’ to a shrub, Bub!

Blog Guy, I’ve heard that you set up test races and stuff like that, so your readers can bet on what beats what? Do you still do those?
