Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
I understand this is a tad anticlimactic, since we’ve already announced this blog’s most popular posts for all of 2008.
But for you folks who wager on the best of the month, and you know who you are, these were the five most popular posts for December.
Naturally I was disappointed that my post on tipping your favorite bloggers wasn’t in the top five, but the readers have spoken.
Happy New Year to all, and please remember: friends don’t let friends not read this blog!
Cripes. Here’s one of those end-of-the year stories where experts talk about the language in 2008. A dictionary publisher has listed the words that received the highest intensity of lookups over the shortest period.
I’m all for improving vocabulary, but first on the list was BAILOUT, and third was SOCIALISM. If people really needed to look those up, they should also look up PATHETIC in connection with our schools.
I’ve received a number of e-mails this weekend from undecided voters, asking for last-minute advice. I’m afraid I can’t help those people. If you’re undecided 48 hours before voting, I’m guessing you can’t even choose a breakfast cereal for yourself.
However, it has been a long campaign and it’s worth revisiting some of the themes we’ve featured in this blog.
Okay gang, listen up! Ernie came up with a GREAT idea I want to share with you!
As you know, we ordered WAY too many McCain Palin bumper stickers, considering most people can’t afford to drive their cars anymore.
But instead of just going to waste, Ernie sent them over to the rally, to have people stick ‘em on their heads! Kind of like hats, only cheaper! Ernie says it’s a solid sea of supporters with bumper stickers on their foreheads over there!
Hey, Blog Guy! I’m in Las Vegas this week, and you won’t even believe who I saw at a strip club! It involves a certain…
Let me stop you right there. You saw a Sarah Palin look-alike stripper contest, right? Now see, if the real candidate had been there, our reporters would have written it up.
It could have been a couple of things. I think when he talks about his time as a prisoner of war he puts air quotes around “Hanoi Hilton,” because he wants people to know it wasn’t a REAL Hilton, which in many cases would be nicer than a prison cell.
“I just wondered if you have any news photographs of Palin’s legs and shoes at that event, which I can save for my grandchildren?” she asks.
Blog Guy, a few days ago you did an item about how photographers cover the shoes of women candidates. I think you were just putting us on, and I’ll prove it. What kind of shoes did Sarah Palin wear at last night’s debate in St. Louis?
Hey, Blog Guy! So, are you pumped for this debate tonight? Will it be dominated by the economy, foreign affairs or what?
