Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Blog Guy, as the curator of the very popular Goofy Face Museum and Doughnut Shop in the nation’s capital, can you tell us a little about what makes a truly goofy picture? It all starts with a goofy face, right?
Not always. The photo above is wonderfully goofy, but nobody’s making a face.
It contains the classic elements of a goofy photo. A bride and groom kissing, and weird-looking fishermen drinking nearby.
That’s the secret? ANY goofy photo will have kissing newlyweds next to fishermen getting hammered?
Okay gang, we’ve gotta find a way to distinguish our brand of coffee from all the others. You know, like it’s grown on misty Blue Mountain, or in the intoxicating sea breezes of Hawaii, or some poetry like that.
Boss, why don’t we go more in the direction those guys in Asia took? You know, “We make our coffee from half-digested cherries found in the poop of wild civets.”
Blog Guy, I see the Obamas are vacationing in Martha’s Vineyard again this summer. Those lucky residents! They can just walk out on their porches and balconies and see Barack and Michelle. What fun!
Well, yes and no. It’s more work than it was the last time Obama went to the Vineyard.
There it is again.
The lady in the photo above is Jimena Navarrete, who was crowned Miss Universe just a couple of days ago. The one on the right is another contestant, Miss Brazil.
Both of them are doing this wacky glam pose that I guess somebody thought was sexy 100 years ago, and it just never went away.
So Doc, tell me. How did the operation go to remove that cyst? I feel great!
Well Lamar, surprisingly it wasn’t a cyst at all. It was a bullet, lodged right there in your head, I’d say for five or six years. You’ve been carrying it around all this time.
A bullet, huh? I’ll be! I guess that would be from a New Year’s Eve party.
Blog Guy, I’m going out to lunch. Wanna come along?
Thanks, I ate already. Spicy Peanut Chicken Kebabs with Satay Sauce, and Blue Cheese with Roasted Pecan Dip, over at Trader Joe’s.
Yummmmm! That sounds great! Trader’s has a restaurant now?
Nah, you know, they put out those itty-bitty paper cups with free samples for shoppers to try.
Blog Guy, I know you’re an expert on the animal kingdom, and I want you to settle a bet about swordfish with my step-son’s biology teacher. This teacher says that while swordfish are indeed fish, they do not travel by swimming.
Pay up, the teacher is right.
As you can see in this photo, swordfish travel on the back of motorcycles and motorbikes.
