Oddly Enough Blog

Hiya, I’m the new Goofmeister!

Blog Guy, I love your Goofy Face Museum and Doughnut Shop, and visit it whenever I’m in DC. But I heard on the radio that there is a new chairman. Are you being eased out?

More Twit than Twitter?

This is for the reader who wrote, “Bob, I love it when you make fun of British stuff, like Funny Hat Day and the Royal Ascot. Why don’t you do more of that?”

Okay honey, bring your big Schwinn in here!

This brothel in Berlin has come up with a new marketing ploy in these tough economic times. It is offering a discount to patrons who arrive on bicycles.

Goring, goring, gone…

Blog Guy, I heard it was another rough day for the revelers at the running of the bulls.

Toss another wrestler on the barbie, mate!

Blog Guy, I know you’re a sports enthusiast. Do you actually participate in any popular sports?

Wadda Colada! Poke me another coconut, bartender!

Blog Guy, I’ve got 54 seconds to waste. Hit me with something bizarre.

Did you already try the Tarzan yell video?

That’s over a minute. I’ve only got 54 seconds.

Everybody’s always in a hurry nowadays! Okay, watch this video of a Malaysian kung fu master as he pierces four coconuts with his finger in just over 30 seconds.

Royal pain in the Ascot?

Listen up magazine staff, this is a disaster! We’re right on deadline for our “Day at the Races” photo spread, but the captions are missing.

It’s nothing years of therapy won’t cure…

Blog Guy, you used to do a good job of covering stupid sports around the world, but you haven’t done any lately. Do I have to switch to another stupid sports blog?

Knees? What kind of joint is this?

Blog Guy, you’ve helped other readers in the past with unusual photo collections. You remember, one person collected shots of rich people eating ice cream, and another wanted dancing U.S. presidents.

Two, four, six, eight, Eddie’s shots are really great!

Blog Guy, you write a lot about photojournalism. Is that a good career?

The very best, except for blogging.

High praise indeed! What’s the single best thing about the job?

That’s easy. The cheerleaders! All news photographers have pro cheerleaders who stand behind them at events and do supportive cheers while the shooters snap away. Here, look at this photo from a Lakers game.
