Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
But just LOOK at these people! In all honesty, even if they didn’t have any bullets, and they were there to FEED the ducks, I’d STILL make fun of them for looking like total doofuses.
Grown men sitting out there on hard rocks, wearing camouflage, making “quack-quack” noises to trick unarmed ducks into flying within range? Have they ever taken a look at themselves, because it isn’t pretty.
The figures are in for this blog’s most popular posts in September, and readers showed a wide variety of interests. They flocked to our pieces on rugby, especially the nude variety, and were eager to learn about flying machines and submarines you can build at home.
Throw in some arts, politics and entertainment, and you’ve got a well-rounded month for folks who no longer need constant supervision.
Okay, Blog Guy, it’s been two weeks since you wrote about any stupid sports. You must have something by now.
Hey, rugby may be foreign, but it’s not stupid!
It is when you play it naked, like the Nude Blacks of New Zealand.
Naked rugby! Who do they play against?
Last weekend they played a female Spanish team. The women wore clothes, as you can see here, and they played before a crowd of 1,500 people.
Blog Guy, I know you are very good at beauty tips. I’m a young woman who would like to meet some guys, and I wonder what I’m doing wrong.
Blog Guy, you used to do a better job of covering really stupid sports. Isn’t that still a part of your beat?
Indeed. Have a look at the recent “Race of Beer,” down in Brazil. It’s a 1.2 mile race in which runners carry 12 cans of beer each. The goal is to cross the finish line with the cans empty. It turns out…
Well, Lamar, I have to tell you I’m excited. It was a big decision putting you totally in charge of every aspect of our new restaurant. Millions of dollars are riding on this, but I thought you deserved your chance.
Gee, thanks, Boss. I think you’ll be very glad you did.
So, talk me through it. Looks like the opening day lunch crowd is starting to arrive at Lamar’s.
Blog Guy, I know you keep up with the various charities of the power elite. Somebody told me about a youth program Secretary of State Hillary Clinton supports, and I don’t think they got it quite right.
Yeah, that was the name of it alright. Tell me about it.
Not much to tell. Once a week her staff brings her a bunch of unhappy young people who would rather be somewhere else, and forces them to meet with her.
Blog Guy, what would you say is your best sport, personally? Rock climbing, Ironman? Fight Club?
Napping. You mean like just closing your eyes and sleeping?
It’s so much more than that. Oh, any idiot can just flop into bed at noon and call it a nap, but the competitors are always finding new places, mapping new napping.
Blog Guy, you never seem to write much about the sport I participate in, the biathlon.
Instrument? What are you talking about?
Sigh. The classic biathlon is a two-part sport. You play a piece on a brass instrument, then you swim 103 miles from Cuba to Florida.
